Paul Rutherford Says “Oh World” Once More

with 3 comments

Since The Second Disc has started, we’ve seen some pretty neat catalogue projects tied to Frankie Goes to Hollywood, namely reissues of the band’s original two LPs from ZTT/Salvo and a 12″ remix compilation featuring rare tracks from the band. Cherry Pop has another FTGH-oriented catalogue project coming out in U.K. next week.

Oh World was the first LP by Paul Rutherford, known as a backing vocalist and dancer with Frankie (and one of the two openly gay members of the band). In 1989, not long after the solo debut by FTGH lead singer Holly Johnson (whose work has been similarly expanded by Cherry Pop), Rutherford cut an LP for Island/4th & Broadway with massive input from ABC members and associates Martin Fry, Dave Clayton and Mark White. Despite their commitment to great pop-house-worthy songwriting (and a not-bad cover of CHIC’s “I Want Your Love”), the album was not a commercial success.

But Cherry Pop resurrects it for fans across the globe in a new double-disc set that adds single edits, B-sides and a whole bonus disc of remixes to the package. It’s coming out March 14 and can be ordered on Amazon U.K. here. A very special thanks to Jason of the pretty awesome The Mixes and The Dubs for the tip!

Check the track list after the jump.
