TRACKS + Bonus Mixes + Demos
|Piece Of The Action- This was a killer second single from Bucks Fizz after Eurovision,|
it was the first time we heard those synth drums that were to be come the trademark
sound of Bucks Fizz. This was a highlight of the album, and this foursome really did
grap a massive slice of the UK action at the time
|Midnight Reservation- I have a real thing about train songs, (and not in an anarak- |
way either) the way the chorus
builds to perfect vocals - when I first played the LP I remember this was my favourite
(Abba's 'Nina' another example of Train Tracks- without train in the title)
|It's Got To Be Love- Mike Nolan's debut slow ballad. If you didnt know, Cheryl|
Baker confessed on BBC Radio 2 that she had a love at first sight crush on Mike,
during the band's early days.. a secret Cheryl never shared before with not
even Mike. Well as the pair duet on that very subject Love- this tune takes on
a whole extra layer and new meaning.
|Took It To The Limit- Another album highlight- the production is amazing on this|
track. So how it ended up as a B side on the 'Piece Of The Action' in hindsight
it could have been another single for the Fizz. It went off in a very funky jazz
direction towards the songs close. One for the dance floor for sure.
|One Of Those Nights- The third single from the album and a showcase of |
Bobby Gee's vocal style- and once again the shape of what was to come
from the Fizz- anthems and terrific building giant chorus. It was never
going to be another No:1 but a worthy follow-up hit.
|Don't Stop- B side A worthy album track for certain this song and of course |
everyone whole brought the Eurovision single got this as a wonderful B-side
one of the Fizz's best.
|Always Thinking of You- B side Another ballad with a difference, and Miss |
Cheryl tugged on the heartstrings with just amazing vocal production.
Footnote Bardo did this track as well
in a completely different style that worked
really well. I wonder if Bucks Fizz ever recorded 'One Step Further' -except the
boys, demo cut of course.

One Of Those Nights (Extended Mix)-
This is an Extended single version that actually never was around back
in the 80s although the 2012 re-production is excellent, as well
