Here’s a little news round-up for the month of May so far…
Last month, Big Break Records (BBR) released their top 40 sales charts for the 4th quarter of 2015 (October to December) where Frantique’s expanded self-titled album came in at no. 5. Well, BBR have released another sales chart for the months January to March 2016, and the good news is that Frantique have managed to stay within the top 40 at no. 14 – well done!
More news! Another various artist dance album has just been released for streaming titled “Poolside Chill Out”. This compilation album also includes mixes from Traumton featuring David Christie’s “Saddle Up”, and “I Love To Love” sung by Tina Charles. You can listen to the whole album now on the streaming sites Deezer and Spotify. It is hoped that the album will soon be sold from most good online music stores.
There’s not much news at the moment on Jack Robinson’s new musical comedy play entitled “Walking The Dogs”, but I read somewhere that Jack would like to take his play to London, England – most likely in the West End area (theatreland). Fingers crossed it all comes true, as fans will get to hear several hit songs from the 70’s and 80’s all written by Jack, Michael McGregor, and David Christie (James Bolden). In the meantime, check out Jack’s official website (see link above) for a synopsis of his play and tracks featured in his show!
And to end things off, I found this nice medley featuring a snippet of David Christie’s “Saddle Up” amongst other 80’s artists hits. This track is from the k-tel’s compilation album titled “Hooked On The Eighties” and is currently streaming on Spotify, but if you look around online, you can get hold of the album on CD. I hope you all like this track, and I would like to wish everyone a fab weekend – cheers for now! 🙂
