Did the Christmas release help Love and Kisses return to the chart?

It was quite a novelty back then to re-issue albums as deluxe or expanded editions. By some standards MCA did a decent job with ĎLove & Kisses And....í and they even gave the album a slightly different sleeve.

It didnít do great but did give it another 6 weeks Top 75 (62-65-66-68-64-51).

It was worth doing then as back then sales in those positions were probably higher than what is getting top 10 right now.

Exactly - especially over the Christmas period she could have been pulling in 5k for those!

Sales of those quantities would be great for Dannii to achieve now, should she decide to gift us with another album.

Ya in todays charts those sales on a few weeks would be a safe top 10. Surprising there was no unused songs added to the expanded edition.

The trio of Party Jam / Attitude / Work is iconic - so many so-bad-it's-good lyrics to quote from. Plus, they're funky too. funky.gif

I love this album. I used to run home from school and play it everyday in Cassette and then watch Dannii in Home And Away where I fell in love with her.

Thank god the remixes the singles and added tracks for the UK tho.

IMO itís better than Kylieís debut. I guess Albums like this if you grew up with them you appreciate. I wonder if new listeners can get into it?

I haven't listened to this in about a decade, but I've never liked it each time I've tried.

'Party Jam' is terrible in a totally iconic way though.

I think this is strictly an album you probably had to grow up with or discovered at the time to appreciate it now laugh.gif

If this was someoneís first introduction to Dannii now Iím not sure they would ever listen to her again kink.gif

Def an album you had to grow up with to even slightly like it now, thevsongs including the singles never floated my boat. The music here totally put me off dannii for a long long time but I did find my way back to dannii in later years although I still skip these songs.

I think the songs are chalk and cheese, for me the best on love and kisses is weaker than the lower end on kylies debut. There is nothing memorable about the music on love and kisses, I hate saying it but love and kisses material sounds really cheap and forgettable where many of the songs from kylies debut are memorable and have stood the test of time. I always think that dannii starting with such poor material killed her chances of really building a successful music career.

Dannii worked with american producers/writers that were well regarded.

I played JTTB to a friend a minute a go , he thought it was Kylie and done by PWL haha.

I love that they bothered to give us expanded re-issued versions wub.gif

I donít often listen to the album from start to finish but the singles are BOPS! Still remember collecting the 7Ē picture disc vinyls for each release.
