Showing out - Mel and Kim

'Showing out' was the debut single of the sisters Mel and Kim Appleby. Originally the song was supposed to be the B-side of 'System', but ultimately the sides were flipped, and 'Showing out' became the smash hit single which is still a wellknown track even now. The single reached number 1 in the Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland, and peaked at number 3 in the UK.

The single was released in two different sleeves, both of which I own. The UK sleeve (pictured above) was the first one I bought, during a holiday in London. A few years later I bought the original sleeve, released in Europe (pictured below). This single launched a short, but very successful career.

My collection: 7" single no. 546 (1 & 2)
Found: Tower Records, London, 1987 /All that music, Leiden, February 23, 1989
Cost: 2 pounds / 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Showing out' / 'System (House mix)'
