Betty Boo: Grrr! It’s Betty Boo (Deluxe Edition) (Cherry Pop)

The sultry, sassy pop on Betty Boo’s sophomore album, Grrr! It’s Betty Boo was superior, intelligent dance pop that promised a great future for this young, talented woman. Shame it didn’t happen that way; still, this is a fine reminder of just how special Betty Boo was.

Modern Romance: Adventures In Clubland (Cherry Pop)

Two members of a short-lived but up-and-coming punk rock group ditched the punk rock and went straight for the jugular of Latin, Salsa and Rap, with a handful of hot dance singles. Adventures In Clubland, their debut, doesn’t quite capture that magic, but this expanded edition makes a case for their overall talent.

3AM Eternal: Ministry, “Halloween (Remix)” (1985)

Though Ministry might disown this, their first “hit,” it’s still a great little number, and a reminder to keep Hallowe’en in your heart all year round!

Everything But The Girl: Walking Wounded/Temperamental (Edsel Records)

The final (as of now) two albums by Everything But The Girl find them diving deep into electronica and dance music–and then getting lost in it, as vocalist Tracey Thorn steps out of the spotlight.

Twilight Music: Sigur Rós Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do (2004)

A fine, unique three-part twenty minute suite of calming and haunting instrumental music from Iceland’s master musicians.
