Depeche Mode - Singles Box 2
Rhino Hi-Five: Information Society
Wonderland is the debut studio album by Erasure, recorded in 1985 soon after the duo's formation. It was released on 1 May 1986 by Sire Records in the USA and 2 June 1986 by Mute Records in the UK and Germany. Not an immediate success, the three singles released from it failed to crack the Top 40 in the UK, nor did any of them enter the Billboard Hot 100. "Who Needs Love Like That" would eventually make the British Top 10 in 1992, and "Oh L'amour" became a UK Top 20 in 2003, both in remixed form promoting their Pop! The First 20 Hits and Hits! compilations respectively. However, the album fared better in both Germany and Sweden, where it was a Top 20 success.
Erasure's initial exposure in the US came via dance clubs, as two singles did hit the top ten on Billboard's Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart.
At the time of its release, Wonderland was considered a failure, especially when comparing it to Clarke's prior successes with Depeche Mode and Yazoo. Early reviews of the album dubbed Andy Bell as 'an Alison Moyet imitator'.
Martin L. Gore
Counterfeit e.p. is the first solo recording by Martin L. Gore, the primary songwriter for the band Depeche Mode.
Released in 1989, Counterfeit is a six-song E.P. of cover songs, hence the name, implying that the songs were not written by Gore. Counterfeit was recorded during a band hiatus after recording and touring for the album Music for the Masses; bandmate Alan Wilder also recorded and released Hydrology under the pseudonym Recoil during this period.
Even though the release has the letters "e.p." in its title, Mute Records issued it an album catalogue number. The German word for "mute" is stumm.
In France and Germany a promo single for "In a Manner of Speaking" was released.
Please: Further Listening 1984-1986
Pet Shop Boys
Please is the debut album by English electronic music duo Pet Shop Boys, released on 24 March 1986 by Parlophone Records in the United Kingdom and by EMI America Records in the United States. According to the duo, the album's title was chosen so that people had to go into a record shop and say "Can I have the Pet Shop Boys album, 'Please'?". Please spawned four singles: "West End Girls", "Opportunities", "Suburbia", and "Love Comes Quickly"; "West End Girls" reached number one in both the UK and the US.

Move To Move
Move to Move is the debut album by Kon Kan, released in 1989 on Atlantic Records. It spawned the singles "Harry Houdini", "I Beg Your Pardon", "Puss N' Boots" and "Move to Move".
The album is mostly group member Barry Harris' creation. He produced the set, and wrote or co-wrote all but one cut. Kevin Wynne is lead vocalist on most songs, although Harris steps in for the title track, and the ballad, "Am I In Love." Jon Lind, who co-penned the Madonna song "Crazy for You", and Bob Mitchell
"I Don't Want Your Love" and "All She Wants Is" made it into the Top 40, but Big Thing only climbed as high as number 24 on the charts. Duran Duran chose novelty over pop conventionalism, opting to make music apropos for seedy burlesque parlors, which many fans couldn't get used to. Outside of the two singles, both "Do You Believe in Shame" (a number 30 hit in the U.K.) and "Lake Shore Driving" hold up the best, while efforts such as "Palomino," "Too Late Marlene," and the title track are more like experiments than rock songs.

Cross That Line
Cross That Line is the fourth album by British pop musician Howard Jones, released in March 1989. It featured two hit singles "The Prisoner" and "Everlasting Love", though neither of these singles nor the album itself were successful in Jones's native UK.

The music video for "The Prisoner" was notably innovative at the time, mixing multiple photo and video editing tricks at a time when computer-based graphics effects were not widely in use.
The track Powerhouse was remixed by Danny D and released to clubs.
The album was remastered and released on CD in 2012.

Mad, Bad And Dangerous To Know
Dead Or Alive
Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know is the third studio album by British pop band Dead or Alive, released on 21 November 1986 on Epic Records. Continuing their association with the Stock Aitken Waterman production team, Dead or Alive scored several hit singles from this album, including "Brand New Lover", "Something in My House", "Hooked on Love" and "I'll Save You All My Kisses".
The video for "Something in My House" was an homage in part to Jean Cocteau's film La Belle et La Bete. In addition to an image of singer Pete Burns, the cover features one of the game walls at the Chateau de Raray, where some of the scenes for La Belle et La Bete were filmed. The cover photographer is Bob Carlos Clarke.
The phrase "Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know" itself comes from a statement by Lady Caroline Lamb describing controversial English literary figure Lord Byron.

Midnight To Midnight
The Psychedelic Furs
Midnight to Midnight is the fifth studio album by the English rock band the Psychedelic Furs, released in February 1987 by Columbia Records.
Midnight to Midnight was produced by Chris Kimsey, who was known for his work with the Rolling Stones and had recently produced Marillion's best-selling album Misplaced Childhood. A more overtly commercial effort than the Psychedelic Furs had previously recorded, Midnight to Midnight was their highest-charting album in the UK, reaching number 12, yet frontman Richard Butler later characterized it as "hollow, vapid and weak", and the album has been described as "over-produced and underwhelming". The album also featured the single "Heartbreak Beat", which proved to be the Furs' biggest Top 40 entry in the US at that time. The album also featured drummer Paul Garisto and saxophonist Mars Williams, both of whom continued to tour with the band.
