Boogie Box High - Jive Talkin'

From 1987, this was a cover version of the Bee Gee's 1975 hit "Jive Talkin". The track was produced by Andreas Georgiou, who was the cousin of former WHAM! singer George Michael. At the time of the tracks release it was rumoured that the vocalist was actually George Michael. The animated video to the song gave no clue to whether the rumour was true, and the sleeve of the record also gave nothing away.

The rumour was of course true, as George Michael's vocals were instantly recognisable. The song peaked at #7 on the UK charts in August 1987. A further single "Give It All Away" was released was released in September 1987 but was not a hit, peaking at #88 in the UK charts.

Thanks! Excellent song and great sound quality for what is possibly a vinyl rip.
