Bananarama - Nathan Jones (80's 12 Inch)
Nathan Jones was originally a hit for The Supremes back in 1971. Bananarama recorded two versions, the first one featuring on the 1987 album Wow! After Siobhan Fahey left the group in 1988 - she disagreed with the direction they were taking with Stock Aitken and Waterman as producers - the new trio (featuring Jacquie O' Sullivan as Fahey's replacement) re-recorded the song and released it as a single in November 1988. It reached #15 in the UK singles chart and also featured on Bananarama's Greatest Hits album and The Rainman soundtrack.
This 12 inch mix features on the album The 12 Inches of Bananarama. Hmm, sounds rude!
