2023 Charity Shop Purchases #88 Ce Ce Peniston - Finally
Finally it happened to me. CC plays Ce Ce. Right in front of my face and I just can not hide it Sometimes these posts just write themselves.
Six charity shops visited over the weekend - two in Auchterarder, one in Dunkeld, one in Pitlochry and two in Bridge of Allen. One CD purchased for the grand total of 50p - Finally by Ce Ce Peniston a Steve Hurley production from 1982 and on the A&M label.
I would imagine that you are all familiar with the title tune.. It has troubled the UK singles charts on three occasions. Firstly in October 1991 for 7 weeks peaking at number 29. The re-issue in March 1992 was much more successful charting for 8 weeks and reaching number 2. It charted again in September 1997 for 5 weeks peaking at 26. The album sold over half a million copies in the US and peaked at number 10 in the UK.
To be honest I would have been happy with a CD single as the other 9 tracks aren't much cop. As it was the early 90s a track Finally (Somedub Mix) at 7 minutes and 7 seconds is sneaked it at the end as a bonus.
Good song that it is I'm not totally convinced that this one is a keeper.
