    Festival, Rhino and Warner Music Australia present an Australian first!

    '12 Inch Dance: Australian 80s Pop' includes 37 rare extended versions of great Australian hits of the '80s from the likes of Icehouse, Real Life, Kids In The Kitchen, Split Enz, Pseudo Echo, I'm Talking, The Dugites, Kate Ceberano, Hunters & Collectors, Eurogliders, Boom Crash Opera, Models, Flowers, Wa Wa Nee, Stephen Cummings and more.

     The majority of these mixes have never been reissued in any format, and have never before been digitised. Fans of any/all featured bands – and of Australian music and '80s music in general - will be thrilled by this release!

    The 1980s was of course the decade the 12" single came into its own. More than just a marketing tool, it enabled fresh and expansive remixes of dance-oriented pop tracks which were perfect for club DJ's and those wanting to hit the dancefloor to their favourite radio hits.

    '12 Inch Dance: Australalian 80s Pop' is a uniquely Australian addition to Rhino UK's own '12 Inch Dance' series of 3CD Releases, which features a massive list of the biggest international pop artists of the era. 

    Compiled by writer David Nichols (former Australian Smash Hits features editor in the '80s, co-author of 'Pop Life: Inside Smash Hits Australia' and author of new book 'Dig: Australian Rock and Pop Music 1960-85.'
