RONNIE SPECTOR & THE E STREET BAND – Individually Numbered 7″ vinyl single
Say Goodbye To Hollywood c/w Baby Please Don’t Go
A stunning recreation of the 7″ single cut by Ronnie Spector and The E Street Band at the CBS Studios in 1977, “Say Goodbye to Hollywood”/”Baby Please Don’t Go” was produced by Sugar Miami Steve (aka Steve Van Zandt) and is the only release credited to the just “The E Street Band.” Billy Joel wrote “Say Goodbye To Hollywood” as a musical tribute to the sound of the Ronettes, so it was fitting that Ronnie Spector record her own version, with Bruce Springsteen’s backing band (and Bruce himself on acoustic guitar). The B side is a Steve Van Zandt original.
THE THE – Double A-Side 12″ LP
Side one: GIANT
Side two: GIANT (DJ FOOD REMIX 2011)
GIANT2FACED12INCH is a double A-sided release featuring THE THE’s Giant (from the 1983 album Soul Mining) and DJ Food’s 2011 remix of the track, which was previously available on his album The Search Engine.
The sleeve features a ‘2 faced’ double cover to mirror the audio content – THE THE’s Andy Dog artwork features on one side, and DJ Food’s illustrative interpretation of the artwork on the other, and a top opening makes this sleeve entirely non-preferential.
