CDs For Sale - Albums, EPs, CD Singles, Rarities etc.

Hi guys,

I have been away for awhile, yes I have been so busy with other stuffs this year. And I think this blog will be on idle mode since it is much easier to hear and download remixes online than ever, I don't think it is good to offer previews or downloads anymore.

A good news for CD collectors!
I am selling part of my collection at Discogs since I want to clean up some space. Most of them are sold at a low price in superb condition! I tried ebay but they have to charge me this and that and items get expired in 7 days, which is time consuming to reupload over and over again. So Discogs seems to be an easier place to manage. New items will be added to Discogs from time to time, make sure to check out frequently, any questions just drop me a note and I will reply asap.

Belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Cheers,
GJ

Peter Rauhofer - The Best Remixes 1998 - 2007

On May 7, 2013, the music industry lost a remix talent when Peter Rauhofer failed his battle with brain cancer. Peter is one of the greatest remixers of my time, his early Club 69 era created a very distinctive sound that was ahead of time. He won the Grammy Award in 2000 for Best Remixer Of The Year for his remix of Cher's "Believe". Rauhofer then provided remixes for many superstars like Madonna, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Christina Aguilera, Britney Spears, Pet Shop Boys to name a few.

Many of his remixes went to #1 on Billboard Dance Club Play chart through out his 20-year career, from the remix anthology below, you can enjoy my selection of his best remixes in chronicle order, 24 mixes from Cher's 1998 "Believe" to Nelly Furtado's 2007 "Say It Right". I only select one song from each artist and a few of them are pretty rare that you can't find in some popular remix websites (and as usual they are directly ripped from my personal CD collection). I don't include his recent mixes here because most of them from 2008 onwards went digital.

Jocelyn Enriquez - When I Get Close To You (Remixes)

Been talking about some pop artists lately so let's reminisce some once popular club divas in late 90s to early 00s.


"When I Get Close To You" is my most favourite song by Filipino descent singer Joceyln Enriquez aside from her disco rendition with Amber and Ultra Nate on Gordon Lightfoot 1971 hit "If You Could Read My Mind". Written by Fred Jorio and originally produced by Thunderpuss, "When" went to the summit of Billboard Dance Club Play Chart in 2000 summer, becoming the only #1 hit under Jocelyn's belt. I love this song alot because it carries a catchy melody which is easy to sing-along. Thunderpuss produced at least three club versions for the song but just two of them got released on CDs. Writer Fred Jorio also produced a storming house mix namely Lectroluv, which is also enjoyable. Alex Carmenates aka DJ Cubanito and Albert Castillo (whom later formed Al B. Rich with DJ Riddler) delivered breakbeat and electro mixes to please different audience.

1. When I Get Close To You (Thunderpuss Original Extended Mix) (8:12)
2. When I Get Close To You (Thunderpuss Club Remix) (9:00)
3. When I Get Close To You (Lectroluv Mix) (7:56)

4. When I Get Close To You (Cubanito's Breakbeat Remix) (6:05)

Cher - A Different Kind Of Love Song (Remixes)

Cher premiered a new single "Woman's World" from her long-awaited 26th studio album online few days ago as a leaked version started popping all over the world. The new tune does not stray too far from the dance pop style of her last two records "Believe (1998)" and "Living Proof (2001)". She generated hit after hit from those two albums and the following number is my most favourite.


"A Different Kind Of Love Song" is one of the highlights from "Living Proof", the album title actually comes from its lyrics. The song was treated with different remixes done by producers such as Rodney Jerkins, Lenny Bertoldo, Ralphi Rosario and Craig J, each of them delivered different club sounds to satisfy all the fans, you can find house, deep house, garage house and euro house from this remix vault. If you ask me to pick the best ones from this great package, my picks would be the mixes from Rodney Jerkins, Lenny B and Rosabel (Ralphi Rosario & Abel Aguilera).

1. A Different Kind Of Love Song (Rodney Jerkins Main Mix (Faster)) (4:20)
2. A Different Kind Of Love Song (Lenny B's Different Kind Of Club Mix) (7:20)
3. A Different Kind Of Love Song (Rosabel Attitude Vocal) (8:57)
4. A Different Kind Of Love Song (Craig J Classic Love Mix) (7:07)
5. A Different Kind Of Love Song (Johnny Rock Mixshow Edit) (5:41)
6. A Different Kind Of Love Song (Murk Main Mix) (9:06)
7. A Different Kind Of Love Song (Ralphi's Aternative Vox) (9:48)

Tori Amos - Jackie's Strength (Warren Rigg Club Mix)

Tori Amos recently released her 13th studio album "Gold Dust" featuring some of her previously released alternative rock and baroque pop songs in an orchestral setting. Peter Rauhofer remixed the first single "Flavor" into a great club number. It has been a decade to have another Amos song got club remixed. I think her vocal fits into the clubland very well. This makes me revisit her dance catalogue again and the following song is my most favourite song of Ms Amos.


"Jackie's Strength" should be one of Amos favourite as well since it is featured in her greatest hit and "Gold Dust". This song is simply beautiful, you can feel the singer's mixed emotions in this delicate ballad. Following the trend set by 1996's "Boys For Pele", Amos allowed this 1999 single to be remixed. Warren Rigg did a great house version which helped sent the song to the pole of the Billboard Dance Club Play chart, becoming Amos last number 1 hit there by far.

t.A.T.u. - Not Gonna Get Us (Remixes)

10 years ago, Russian girl group t.A.T.U. hit the world by storm with their English debut album "200 km/h In The Wrong Lane". All my classmates were talking about them. When I turned on the radio, it was their songs all the time. All the high-pitched things they sang kept running through my head back then. Last week, the groups previous record labels Interscope Records and Cherrytree Records released a 10 Year Anniversary Edition of the album as recognition of a ten-year anniversary from the original version. Personally, the second single "Not Gonna Get Us" is the best song from the album.


Dave Aude, Richard Morel, E-Smoove, Larry Tee and Guena LG & RLS were commissioned to remix the song, these big name DJs didn't fail to deliver excellent mixes to the dancefloor. The song peaked at number one on the US Hot Dance Club Songs, becoming the groups only number one single in the US component charts.

1. Not Gonna Get Us (Dave Aude Extended Vocal Mix) (7:17)
2. Not Gonna Get Us (Richard Morel's Pink Noise Vocal Mix) (8:11)
3. Not Gonna Get Us (Thick Dick aka E-Smoove Vocal) (7:13)
4. Not Gonna Get Us (Larry Tee Electroclash Mix) (6:20)

Celine Dion - To Love You More (Tony Moran Club Mix)

Sony Music recently released a 17-track greatest hits album of Celine Dion which produced entirely by her long time songwriter & music producer friend David Foster. Mr. Foster has been an important person in Ms Dion's music career since early 90s. They have together generated so many worldwide hits in the 90s, the following song, which is also included in the compilation, is one of my favourites from the duo.


The song was recorded for a popular Japanese TV drama series Koibito Yo (My Dear Lover) in 1995. It became a smash hit there, staying at #1 for 5 weeks on the Oricon Singles Chart. The song was also promoted successfully across Canada and US in 1996 and 1998 respectively, topped the Adult Contemporary charts in both countries. Tony Moran was comissioned to remix the song in 1998, which was commercially released in Japan the year after. The club mix is epic!
