‘Phil Harding Club Mixes Of The 80s’
Double CD

Companion to the ‘PWL From The Factory Floor’ book

With a CV resembling a ‘Who's Who’ of the music industry, remixer and producer, Phil Harding's career spans over 30 years... from recording The Clash in the 70s, remixing and producing top club/dance and pop acts in the 80s and 90s, to recently working with Lamont Dozier in L.A. In the 80s, working out of a basement studio in the Pete Waterman-owned PWL studio complex (with production partner Ian Curnow), Phil Harding club mixes and productions dominated the dancefloors and club charts on an international scale. On this long-awaited, double-CD package (with 24-bit digital remastering) are 25 sought-after classic 80s remixes and rarities...

Motown stars  DIANA ROSS | THE FOUR TOPS | MICHAEL JACKSON WITH THE JACKSON 5 | JIMMY RUFFIN 

Hit 80s artists  ABC | HOLLY JOHNSON | EIGHTH WONDER & THE PET SHOP BOYS | IMAGINATION | BASIA (MATT BIANCO) | BLOW MONKEYS | FIVE STAR | GODLEY & CREME | RICK ASTLEY | DEAD OR ALIVE 

Previously unreleased tracks and mixes  JIMMY RUFFIN stunning unreleased production | RICK ASTLEY (2 unreleased mixes including the original ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’ Club Mix + 2 unreleased Harding/Curnow productions) and a planned SINITTA 1990 re-launch with a Madonna ‘Vogue’-style club sound. 

Comprehensive colour booklet  packed with new research, Phil Harding mix commentary and interviews on an unprecedented scale (30,000 words - equivalent to an extra 5 chapters-worth if included in the book)... In addition to an in-depth brand new interview with Phil Harding and Ian Curnow together on ‘the making of’ these tracks and beyond, there are interviews with 10 other artists/industry personnel involved with these tracks back-in-the-day. With a selection including 10 US Dance Chart hits (4 reaching No. 1) and UK club and singles chart successes too numerous to mention (and many never-before-on-CD), ‘PHIL HARDING CLUB MIXES OF THE 80s’ is a must-have release for 80s club, dance and pop devotees alike.
