Transparent vinyl is colourless. Needs to be a 2LP job. Thanks a lot for the heads up, I just ordered from Germany. I already have several different pressings of both albums on all formats but I need to have these in my collection. Surely a matter for Trading Standards. Can anyone confirm these sound alright? But you are right to be wary of coloured vinyl: there is a greater likelihood of the sound being poorer with the quality of the plastic second place behind the right shade of teal or whatever.
But, just as there can be crap black vinyl releases, there are some coloured vinyls that are superb. I understand that vinyl itself is clear and dyes need adding to create any kind of colour. I have the original vinyl release fromwhich was a double vinyl and it sounds great. This seems to be just one vinyl and colored so I would not bet on great Album) quality. Then again, the ltd ed vinyl of Fever by Kylie Minogue was white vinyl and it sounds very good.

I couldn't believe that the record company gave me the money so that I could work with him. For his part, Rodgers recalled that he had first seen Madonna perform at a small club in New York in In an interview with Time magazine, Rodgers explained: "I went to the club to see another woman sing, but when I got there Madonna was onstage.
I loved her stage presence and then we met right after that. I kept thinking to myself, 'Damn, is she a star', but she wasn't at that time. I always wanted to work with her and Like a Virgin seemed like a perfect opportunity. Rodgers enlisted the help of his former Chic bandmates Bernard Edwardswho was the bassist, and Tony Thompsonwho played the drums; they appeared on several tracks of the album. Rodgers decided to be the guitarist, when Edwards requested him to do so, in exchange for their help.
The schedule was also difficult for Madonna, who recalled that she used to "go to the swim club on the Upper West Side and go swimming and walk from there to the recording studio. It was impossible for me to reach there at morning. He commented: "I am always amazed by Madonna's incredible judgement when it comes to making pop records.
I've never seen anyone do it better, and that's the truth. When we did that album, it was the perfect union, and I knew it from the first day in the studio. The thing between us, man, it was sexual, it was passionate, it was creativity Jason Corsaro, the record's audio engineerpersuaded Rodgers to use digital recordinga new technique at the time which Corsaro believed was going to be the future of recording.
Once the tracks met with everybody's approval, Robert Sabino added the keyboard parts, playing mostly a Sequential Circuits Prophet-5as well as some Rhodes piano and acoustic pianowhile Rodgers also played a Synclavier. Madonna, although not required, was present every minute of the recording sessions and the mixing process, Corsaro commented: "Nile was there most of the time, but she was there all of the time.
She never left". The cover sleeve and images were shot by Steven Meiselwho would become a regular collaborator with Madonna, in a suite at the St. Regis Hotel. With the title song alluding to this concept, Madonna wanted the album cover to have mixed messages as well.
This point, according to Thompson, is further emphasized by the belt she is wearing, the wording on which is just visible as "Boy Toy". He added: "The image was ambiguous and was based upon the fact that Madonna's appeal at that point of her career was not presenting herself just as an object of desire, but also as a desiring female subject". Erlewine commented that the "Steven Meisel-shot cover Fashion has never been the same.
My Like a Virgin album cover is a classic example. People were thinking who was I pretending to be— the Virgin Mary or the whore? These were the two extreme images of women I had known vividly, and remembered from childhood, and I wanted to play with them.
I wanted to see if I can merge them together, Virgin Mary and the whore as one and all. The photo was a statement of independence, if you wanna be a virgin, you are welcome. But if you wanna be a whore, it's your fucking right to be so. According to Taraborrelli, "Madonna and Rodgers' collective energy—she wanting to score with a smash second album and he wanting to be the producer to give it to her—drove the production of Like a Virgin with great precision.
Reflecting on the music composition for the album, Bray noted: "I've always kind of made the rib cage and the skeleton of the songs already—she's there for the last things like the eyebrows and the haircut.
Madonna explained that the concept of the song was similar to her life's situation at that time. According to her, the song was provocative, hence she was attracted to it. The lyrics identify with materialismwith Madonna asking for a rich and affluent life, rather than romance and relationships. It was one of the first songs developed for the project and, according to Madonna, was inspired by a girl who is saved by, and subsequently falls in love with an angel.
It has vocal LP beneath the main chorus and the lyrics repeat the angel-like image of Madonna's savior. Recordsafter listening to a demo sung by Kelly. However, Rodgers initially felt that the song did not have a good enough hook and was not suitable for Madonna, but subsequently changed his opinion after the hook was stuck in his mind.
So let's do it. Madonna's voice is heard in a high register while a continuous arrangement of drums are heard along the bassline.
In sexual terms, the lyrics can be interpreted in different ways for different people. In "Over and Over", Madonna sings about determination and picking yourself up from disappointments.
The song consists of instrumentation from drums, synths and has a three-chord progression. I was very much into doing everything live, so I just said, 'Madonna, you go out there and sing and we will follow you.
She sang and she was overcome with emotions and she started crying, but I left it on the record. Towards the end, Madonna emotes in the voice of a soul singer. Madonna's inspiration behind the song was the dance floor, and she wrote it while watching a handsome Puerto Rican man across her balcony.
Madonna's friend Erika Belle was present during the recording and watched the whole process. Bray's problem was solved; Belle remembered the experience as: "[The song] seemed to come out of her, I was awestruck.
Madonna's voice is double-tracked in the chorus. The lyrics are an extended metaphor for fashion and sex, comparing dressing up with passion.
Beginning with a slow introductionthe song is in the doo-wop genre and resembles the songs of early Sixties girl groups like The Shirelles or The Crystals. The saxophone breakdown is played by Lenny Pickett. It talks about seduction and the insecurity felt by a woman who feels that things are moving too quickly for her with her man. Using triple-rhythms and double-tracked vocals, the song includes a noise resembling someone slapping a microphone and a spoken sequence which fades away in the end.
Madonna debuted the first single "Like a Virgin" at the first MTV Video Music Awards on September 14,where she appeared on stage atop a giant wedding cake dressed in a wedding dress, adorned with the infamous "Boy Toy" belt buckle, and veil.
The performance is noted as one of the iconic performance in MTV's history. The album was further promoted on her first headlining tour, The Virgin Tourwhich only visited cities in the United States and Canada. However, the final schedule did not reflect the idea. In the end several more US dates were added and moved to larger concert venues due to overwhelmingly strong ticket sales.
Madonna replied saying. I played a small theater in Seattle, and the girls had flap skirts on and the tights cut off below their knees and lace gloves and rosaries and bows in their hair and big hoop earrings.
I was like, 'This is insane! I've never done a bus tour. Everyone says they are really fun. It received positive reviews from contemporary as well as old critics, who frequently called it as one of the defining songs for Madonna. Discovering that, contrary to her song, the young woman was not impressed by money and expensive gifts, he pretended to be penniless and succeeded in taking her out on a date.
Critics gave mixed review of the song, with one group denoting it as a classic while the others felt it was sub-par compared to the other Madonna singles. The song was appreciated by contemporary critics as well as authors, who have frequently called it "Madonna's first great single". Critics reacted positively to the dance-pop nature of the track.
According to Q magazine, Like a Virgin was the album that "propelled [Madonna] into the stratosphere — and rightly so. The songs are smart, funny, sexy and irresistible. Here, the calculation is apparent, and while that's part of Madonna's essence—even something that makes her fun—it throws the record's balance off a little too much for it to be consistent, even if it justifiably made her a star.
And to make the music less mechanical, she's hired Nile Rodgers, who I won't blame for making it less catchy. This is nonsense; it misses how Madonna conflated notions of spontaneity and calculation. Rodgers is the ideal collaborator. But where girl groups, from the Shirelles to the Ronettes, worshipfully extolled their boyfriends' cars, haircuts and rebel poses, Madonna's point of view is decidedly more self-interested.
In matters of love, she is a comparison shopper with a shrewd sense of her own market value. The words 'shiny and new' describe not only the way the love-smitten singer feels in the title song but the sound of the album.
Matt Damsker from Los Angeles Times commented: "Madonna's beating vibrato sometimes makes her sound so robotic in the album, Shoo-Bee-Doo - Madonna - Like a Virgin (Vinyl.
The mid-tempo ballad 'Shoo-Bee-Doo' and a soulful cover of Rose Royce's ' Love Don't Live Here Anymore ' proved Madonna could churn out more than just novelty hits, while the sugary ' Angel ' and the irresistible ' Dress You Up ' contributed to the singer's record-breaking list of consecutive Top 5 hits 16 in all.
The retro-infused 'Stay' and the percussive 'Over and Over' are the album's hidden gems. She is backed on this by the reliable rhythmic touch of veteran Nile Rodgers, whose contributions have helped her create a tolerable bit of fluff. After the release of Like a VirginStephen Holden from The New York Times commented: "No phenomenon illustrates more pointedly how pop music history seems to run in cycles than the overnight success of the year-old pop siren known as Madonna.
Teen-agers were lining up in stores to purchase the album the way their parents had lined up to buy Beatles records in the late 60's. Taraborrelli felt that " Like a Virgin is really a portrait of Madonna's uncanny pop instincts empowered by her impatient zeal for creative growth and her innate knack for crafting a good record. Every important artist has at least one album in his or her career whose critical and commercial success becomes the artist's magic moment; for Madonna, Like a Virgin was just such a defining moment.
She asserted her sexuality as only male rock stars had done before, moving well beyond the limited confines of being a pop artist, to becoming a focal point for nationwide discussions of power relationships in the areas of sex, race, gender, religion, and other divisive social topics. Her songs became a lightning rod for both criticism by conservatives and imitation by the younger female population. Notes . Credits adapted from the album's liner notes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The songs on that were pretty weak. On this one I've chosen all the songs and I want them to be all hits—no fillers. That's why I've done outside songs as well as six of my own I wanted every song to be strong. Main article: The Virgin Tour. And she's stayed that way: her influence on the way women came to view LP, love and themselves was so great that some universities offered courses in Madonna studies. And she's also continued to make some of pop's most enduring singles.
