About this deal

The group scored a UK number five hit, and topped the charts in the Netherlands in 1988 with their initial release, " Tribute (Right On)", which paid homage to soul musicians Diana Ross & the Supremes and Aretha Franklin. [1] Their second single "Riding on a Train" would peak at number 13 in the UK singles chart. [2] Both singles were taken from their debut album To Whom It May Concern, released in October 1988, an album which would peak at number 3 in the United Kingdom and which would go on to sell more than one million copies. [1] In addition to the two top 20 singles, the album included "Enchaned Lady" (a small UK top 40 hit) and a cover version of the Chi-Lites' "Living in the Footsteps of Another Man". The Pasadenas were an English R&B/pop group. They had two UK top 10 albums and eight UK top 40 hit singles, including " Tribute (Right On)" (1988), "Riding on a Train" (1988) and " I'm Doing Fine Now" (1992). [1] Career [ edit ] In 2002, Cherry Red Records reissued the album To Whom It May Concern on CD. [1] In April 2005, the Pasadenas took part in week three of the TV reality show Hit Me, Baby, One More Time, while in 2021, various members of the group contributed their thoughts and opinions to Channel 5's weekly Friday night retro countdown shows (broadcast under titles like Britain's Favourite 80s Songs). [7] In 1989, the Pasadenas were invited to be part of Band Aid II's version of "Do They Know It's Christmas", alongside Cliff Richard, Jimmy Somerville, Chris Rea and various S/A/W-produced stars.

After releasing their covers album, the Pasadenas were dropped from Columbia/Sony Music with their next releases being issued independently. In 1994 they issued "Longing For Someone" on the Sounds of London label (Solor), [5] while in 1995 they charted (outside the top 75) at number 96 with a song called "Round & Round", [6] their last single to be found on the Official Charts database.They followed this with “Riding On A Train” (UK No.13) before releasing their first album, “To Whom It May Concern” that Autumn. The album would make the top three at home and find its way to No.89 on the US chart, selling over a million copies worldwide. One further single was released at Christmas time, “Enchanted Lady” (UK No.31) before the boys moved on to something newer and fresher, but not before taking part in the second Band Aid single, “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” in 1989, which became the festive number one in the UK.

As the album Elevate did not chart, the group made a covers album called Yours Sincerely in 1992. The Pasadenas achieved their highest UK hit position with a remake of New York City's 1973 hit " I'm Doing Fine Now", [4] which sold more than 200,000 copies. [1] The single was produced by Motorcity Records' Ian Levine along with Billy Griffin and reached number 4 in the UK (outpeaking the original's chart position of number 20, by 16 places). [2] The Pasadenas managed to chart another three singles from Yours Sincerely into the UK top 75, with their last chart hit also being a cover (this time a version of Al Green's "Let's Stay Together" which charted at number 22 in November 1992). a b "PASADENAS - full Official Chart History - Official Charts Company". www.officialcharts.com .
