Description

Upon its initial release in 1984, Last Christmas spent five consecutive weeks at number two in the UK Singles Chart. It was held off the top spot at Christmas by Band Aid's Do They Know It's Christmas ? (on which Michael also performed). The song was recorded in August 1984, at Advision Studios, London, England. With Andrew Ridgeley, the other half of the Wham! duo, George wrote, performed, produced and played every single instrument on the track, using a LinnDrum drum machine, a Roland Juno-60 synth and sleigh bells.

“Under the Spell of Spain is a showcase of virtuosic playing by some of London’s finest brass and percussion players. Highly recommended!”
