With the recent talk of Kylie, I might as well mention this...

Being in the US in 1994, it was pretty tough to find her discs despite being a star around the world. Oddly enough, I actually bought...and yes still own...her early Greaterst Hits disc which covers her PWL era. Yeah, the label that clogged up the British UK Indie Charts. I remember hearing "Better the Devil You Know" and reading the "Sex Kylie" mentions in The NME, so you know where this is going.

Once she recorded with Nick, I was all too happy.

Plus, I once had the "Confide in Me" single. Bought at Camelot Music (I think) in one of their occasional Import sale-aways (almost like a Give Away, ultra cheap prices).

OK, maybe not that guilty, but yeah, I liked her music. Good well constructed Pop, and the fact that she moved away from the SAW Factory with class makes it even more better.

Related to my love of Exploitation films, the Disco Version of the theme to Caligula (The film starring Macolm McDowell, Teresa Ann Savoy, and Peter O' Toole Produced by Pentouse) certainly ranks up there with my Guilty Pleasures. Tasty Musicianship, though!

No fan of Tiffany, not even in a Dark Music Secret kind of way, but here's a bit of trivia. In the Late 2Ks, there was a time when she was being Produced by Gregory Butler, who was Switchblade Symphony's producer. This obviously led to Cleopatra Records haveing one of her albums.

In 2007, her covers album I Think We're Alone Now: 80's Hits and More was mainly produced by Butler, and actually has her version of (get ready for this) "Panic." Yes, the Mall Music Queen sings The Smiths. Yikes!

Later on, Butler also produced about 4/11'ths of Just Me.

I'm sure there's many many more, but that's a small example I remember.

To be fair, they have been doing the re-issue game for a while with some good stuff, but they seriously lost me when they were getting into the Tribute thing.
