Kajagoogoo Peru Promotional Single

July 19, 2014

Today’s chunk of vintage vinyl comes to you in the form of a promotional vinyl single, sourced and imported into the United Kingdom all the way from ‘darkest’ Peru.

Issued direct to the radio station music library via IEMPSA, this promotional disc contains Kajagoogoo’s second and third hit songs Ooh to be Ah and Hang on Now.  The acronym IEMPSA stands for Industrias Electricas Y Musicales Peruanas S.A. , which in simpler terms is actually Odeon and EMI Records’ Peruvian subsidiary company.

Items issued via this label onto the open market are highly sought after by collectors, with similar records by acts such as Duran Duran changing hands for incredibly high prices if in the right sort of condition.

Dated ‘Marzo’ (March) 1984, the disc was once the property of Radio Pasco, a station based in the central Peruvian Pasco Region.    It now resides here in the UK as a part of the KajaFax archive 🙂

To round off today, here is a 2012 re-mix of Ooh to be Ah, courtesy of DJpHatSam.

See you next time!

    I wonder why they put out a single in 1984 as a promo featuring songs with Limahl on vocals?
