Cherry Pop Reissues Samantha Fox Titles, Needs Love Too

with 3 comments

Here’s some news fit for Page Three: ’80s pop tart Samantha Fox is expanding her first four albums on Cherry Pop Records this summer.

Touch Me (1986), Samantha Fox (1987), I Wanna Have Some Fun (1989) and Just One Night (1991) have all been digitally remastered and will be presented as double-disc sets featuring not only a heap of dance mixes, but a generous amount of rare and unreleased material from the vaults.

Fox gained immediate notoriety in 1983 when she became U.K. tabloid The Sun‘s youngest Page Three model at the tender age of 16. (Fox’s parents gave written consent for their daughter to pose topless, shocking the more conservative side of British culture.) Music was her first love, though; two years before, she formed her own band, S.F.X., and released a handful of singles on the Lamborghini label.

Several of those tracks are included on the expansion of Touch Me – among their first “official” releases on a Fox album. Hits including “Touch Me (I Want Your Body),” “Do Ya Do Ya (Wanna Please Me),” “Naughty Girls (Need Love Too)” and “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Me Now” abound in various configurations on the sets, along with several vaulted tracks from Fox’s many collaborations with the production teams Stock Aitken Waterman and Full Force.

All four sets will be out in the U.K. on June 25, and you can order and preview them after the jump.
