Again we return to all matters Divine as Cherry Pop re-issue this album which first appeared on Bobby O’s “O” Records back in 1982. Although this time round you’re treated to a second disc crammed with the delight of various remixes etc. But back to the original with its killer line-up of material. All the early and infamous singles are present: Native Love (Step by Step), Shoot Your Shoot plus the uber trash classic Shake It Up, as well as hidden nuggets like the proto-electro Alphabet Rap. Of course it’s all about the singer, although in reality it’s also very much about Bobby O’s fierce production ethic which kicks and screams at you, much as Divine does. So onto Disc two which has remixes by Jon Of The Pleased Wimmin and Mark Moore amongst others lending their sheen to the favourites. Essential living.
Release: April 28
