INFO > When The Spice Girls debuted in 1996, Mel C was my least favorite. However, time has been kind to Sporty, and her Spice rank has subsequently improved. Released in 2000, “I Turn To You” was the fourth single from Melanie Chisholm’s debut solo album, “Northern Star.” The song topped the charts in the UK and several European countries, and Hex Hector’s remix earned him a Grammy Award. The above tracklisting is unique to the Australian CD single.

INFO > In 1999, the Tilt trio of Michael Parks, Michael Wilson, and John Graham recycled their trance instrumental “Rendezvous” (written and produced with Paul van Dyk) into “Invisible”, featuring former Grace vocalist Dominique Atkins. From a collector’s perspective, it’s one of Hooj Choons’ most confounding releases: multiple slabs of promo vinyl and acetates feature various versions; however, the commercial 12″ only includes the ‘Lost Tribe Vocal Mix’ and “What’s This?” The two UK CD singles compile several—but not all—of the mixes, and they’re edited to comply with UK chart requirements; also, “What’s This?” is excluded entirely. The above tracklisting replicates promo CDR HOOJ073LCD, with additional bonus track ‘Tilt’s Supernatural Vocal Mix.’

HELP > Anyone have the Australian CD with the full-length mixes?
