MARI WILSON

- Discography for UK -


June 1980 non-album 7" Mari Wilson with The Imaginations: Loveman

    Loveman / If That's What You Want (GTO GT 274)
Written by Tot Taylor, produced by Tot Taylor and Paul Bultitude.

Aug 1981 non-album 7" Mari Wilson with The Imaginations: Dance Card

    Dance Card / She's Had Enough of Me (The Compact Organization, PINK 1)
Written by Teddy Johns, produced by Johns & Torvene.

(1985) limited retrospective 12" Mari Wilson: The Ready to Hear Collection [1980-1981]

  1. Dance Card (Teddy Johns) [produced by Johns/Bultitude]
  2. Stop and Start (Teddy Johns) [produced by Johns/Bultitude]
  3. She's Had Enough (Teddy Johns) [produced by Johns/Bultitude]
  1. Love Man (Tot Taylor) [produced by Taylor/Bultitude]
  2. Ecstasy 3.12 (Teddy Johns) [produced by Johns]
  3. If That's What You Want (Tot Taylor) [produced by Taylor/Bultitude] (The Compact Organization ACT 20)
All tracks are from 1980/1981, so I place this single here. "Ecstasy" is the same version that was released on A YOUNG PERSON'S GUIDE TO COMPACT in 1982. Strangely, on the 7" single it says that "Dance Card" and "She's Had Enough" were produced by Johns & Torvene, whereas on this 1985 12" it says "produced by Johns/Bultitude", but I assume it's the same recordings.

1985 various artists 2-LP DO THEY MEAN US

Quote from the album: "Mari Wilson - between stepping out of the bathtub and stepping onto the disco floor to this new presentation of the loud symphonic thud of 'Lets Make This Last' Mari idly flicked through her collection of film premiere programmes and remembered the day she recorded 'Let Me Dream' for her forthcoming second album. With a voice like this hairstyles are a real luxury."
