Press Release:

*** A GUY CALLED GERALD ***

There has been a lot of confusion surrounding Manchester House svengali A GUY CALLED GERALD, and his New Brighton label RHAM since the demise of Red Rhino. Now, at last, all is to become clear:

RHAM now have a new distribution agreement with Pinnacle (despite what is printed on the record sleeve), making GERALD's thriller dancefloor hit 'VOODOO RAY', available through-out the country once more.

As well as this, on March 6th, a brand new Ricky Rouge re-mix of 'VOODOO RAY' will be released and at the same time 'VOODOO RAY' will be released in the States by the Jungle Brother's label War Lock in a different Frankie Knuckles re-mix.

After that, a week later, on Monday 13th March, A GUY CALLED GERALD's long awaited debut LP 'HOT LEMONADE', will finally be released, on RHAM, through Pinnacle. Track listing is as follows:

Side One - Hot Lemonade; Rhythm Of Life; Arcade Fantasy; Radio Active; Music Sweet Muzic.
Side Two - In The Beginning; K9; Escape II; I Am Somebody; Tranquillity On Phobos.

Also, A GUY CALLED GERALD, as already announced, will be supporting New Order on the 25th March at the Glasgow SECC.

Confused? You soon will be:
For the next episode in this garage groove tale, 'watch this space'.

Comments:

Some copies label track A1 "Extended Mix"; others label it "Original Mix". All play the same track, which is the same as the "Radio Mix" on the Hot Lemonade album, and different than the mix on the original Rham! 12" and CD-single.

"Voodoo Ray (Gerald's Rham On Acid Remix)" is available on the following CD compilations:
Back To Love 3
Dance Party Classix

"Voodoo Ray (Paradise Ballroom Mix)" is available on the following CD compilations:
Full House 1990 (6:05)
Garage Classics Vol. 1 (8:02) - only place to find the full-length mix
Ich Zahl' Nicht Mehr! (6:05)
Kult Dance Klassix (7:02)
Warlock's Freaky Beats And Crazy Grooves (6:04)

"Voodoo Ray (Penthouse Mix)" does not appear to have ever been released on CD.

"Voodoo Ray (Voodoo Raydio Mix)" appears in edited format on CD on either the German CD single of "Voodoo Ray" or the compilation, "Tanz House".

Reissued all the time, some with different coloured labels.
