The fame and fortune EP - Various

The UK magazine Record Mirror sometimes released a 7" single as a freebie, featuring rare and exclusive tracks. Fortunately, decades later, these EP's still pop up in second hand stores now and again - a great opportunity to still get your hands on these tracks.

In this case, it was the remix of the Beloved's 'Your love takes me higher' I was after. The other three tracks, unfortunately, aren't much to write home about.

My collection: 7" single no. 5194
Found: Record Exchange, London, October 14, 2011
Cost: 50p
Tracks: 'I'll be with you' (Brother Delphi), 'Your love takes me higher (Depth & Desire mix)' (The Beloved) / 'Rave on' (Happy Mondays), 'I dream of you' (Adamski)

NRG - Adamski

This single ended up in my collection because I found it in the sleeve of an LP I bought. I don't remember which LP. A free single, oh well, that's always good, I must have thought. Except maybe it isn't.

'NRG' was actually Adamski's debut single, released in 1990. It reached number 12 in the UK singles chart. As you can see, the cover of the single features a mocked up Lucozade bottle with the 'lucozade' words replaced with 'N-R-G'.

My collection: 7" single no. 2184
Found: London, September 28, 1994
Cost: 0,00
Tracks: 'NRG' / 'I love teknology'

Killer - Adamski

Adamski was born as Adam Tinley on December 4, 1967 in the New Forest, England. In the late Eighties, at the time of acid house, Adamski made a name for himself in the club circuit, touring with Daddy Chester and later with Seal. With the latter, he wrote 'Killer', which would become Adamski's breakthrough single, but is better known as the track that launched Seal's career.

The single reached number 1 in the UK singles charts and peaked at number 2 in the Netherlands and Germany. While Adamski had no more notable hit singles, Seal started a solo career that would see him reach the charts around the world with hits like 'Crazy', 'Kiss from a rose' and many others.

My collection: 7" single no. 1405
Found: Grammofoonwinkel, Utrecht, April 3, 1991
Cost: 1 guilder
Tracks: 'Killer' / 'Bassline changed my life'
