Martika‘s 1991 album Martika’s Kitchen will be reissued by Cherry Red as a two-CD deluxe edition next month.
The US pop star’s second album is notable for her collaborations with Prince; four tracks in total, including the hit singles Love…Thy Will Be Done and the title track.
The bonus CD on this set (“Side Orders”) features 12 remixes, including an unreleased radio edit of Spirit and two remixes of the same track (House and Hip-Hop Mix) only issued on promotional 12-inch vinyl back in the day.
The label is describing this set as “remastered, repackaged and reheated” and the set comes with a booklet which features an exclusive commentary and track-by-track review by Martika (with ex-Attitude editor Adam Mattera).
This two-CD deluxe edition of Martika’s Kitchen will be released on 26 January 2018.
