Brand New Heavies - The Ticket E.P. 1994

The Ticket Cassette 1

So, what can I tell you? The Ticket was a magazine that appeared on the bookshelves in London for a very brief spell before disappearing into magazine oblivion. It was quite a classy mag but amidst the glut of club lifestyle mags on the shelves at the time, it found no interest. I was lucky enough to spot the Brand New Heavies cassette stuck to the front and that was it.

To my knowledge these tracks, all written and produced by BNH, have not turned up anywhere else since BUT... I'm no expert on The Heavies. Touch Of Your Love and Keep Together were recorded at RAK in London, while Country Funkin' and Acid One were recorded in Hollywood Sounds, LA in August & September 1993. Enjoy!

Sorry about the cover scan, it's in good condition but the scan is nasty?
I have included CD sized cover art in the rar.

  2. I know at least that Country Funkin' was on a BNH compilation, as I remember hearing it from something I downloaded. Thanks for sharing!

    Mickey -- Thanks so much for this one; what a rare find! "Touch of Your Love" is especially fresh. I can fill in a little more info on "Keep Together": it did turn up on the "Brother Sister" album in 1994, but the album version had N'Dea Davenport instead of Jan Kincaid on lead vocal. Thanks for posting this!

  7. What a find! I'd like to get these in wav format. I believe I have all BNH non-album tracks except the two on this tape. I could send you some other rare BNH stuff in return. You can find my e-mail from my blog: http://boneyb.blogspot.com/
