Tony Mansfield produced this entire LP approximately from Nov 1979 to March 1980 (engineered by Pete Hammond at the T.M.C. Studios, Tooting, England) but the record company did not approve of his production. Julian Carr told me 13 Nov 1999: "When this LP was rejected, Mack took over (in April 1980). Mack took the tracks and mostly added extra layers, and re-recorded drumming (drums on the Mansfield version were Nick Brotherwood - he left, and Pete King joined instead and did the Mack version). Four tracks (Another World, Operator, Satellite in Orbit and Starflight reprise) were dropped, and three new songs written. At least one acetate of the original album exists, pressed at Tape One. The new Mack-produced LP (Epic SEPC 84545) was released 24 Oct 1980 and contained ten tracks: 1980-F 2.32, Love Will Always Make You Cry 3.30, Can You Face It? 3.15, Who's Gonna Love You 4.05, Starflight 4.15, Wild West Show 3.30, Billy, Billy 4.40, It's High Fashion 3.07, Why Can't We Be Friends 2.46, Joanne 4.10. The track 1980-F (an instrumental) was left alone, and is the only Mansfield track to make it to CD [included on the After the Fire double CD "Der Kommissar - The CBS Recordings" (Edsel Records MEDCD 757) in 2005]."

Maggie herself told me 4 Dec 2010: "I have just enjoyed browsing through your page on the recordings of Tony Mansfield. It brought back great memories of the making of my album which you have listed. Tony, was brilliant from the get go---he just had what it takes and I still regret not heeding his direction on a couple of the tracks particularly "Good Ship Earth". I am myspace friends with (Engineer/songwriter/musician) Andy Geirus and also Nick Straker songwriter and keyboardist exraordinaire. I was fortunate to work with Tony and the musicians you have named. The owner of TMC studios was Bernie Proctor and I do recall that he sold me the baby grand from the studio--the same one Nick Straker played on my album and is prominent on the recording of "Whatever Happened To Josephine?" which is loosely biographical. Many of the tracks feature Tony's beautiful Ovation guitar which sounds so clear and bright. A year or so ago I transferred the vinyl LP to my mac and I think I'll play something right now------my two favorite tracks are "Whatever Happened To Josephine?" and "Good Ship Earth" the later I would really like to get to record again as Tony wanted it to be. Being both a singer and a songwriter it took some time for me to realize that I had to remove my songwriting hat and approach each song in the same way I would do when learning any new piece of music. Until now I have previously only ever recorded original material so to record an album of timeless standards has been a really pleasurable exercise. The album came about when a very dear friend asked for a CD of my music to play while he was driving- ----as we all know regardless of where we are in the world, driving can be stressful so I came to the conclusion that I would record an album that was chilled and hopefully relaxing. In October 2010 I was completing production of an album for Australian artist Lesyah ---the album "Day In The Sun" is released digitally and will be in the shops some time next week. Anyway, on the days when Lesyah finished, with studio time to spare I recorded "Ditto" Songs For Alexander with the intention of the tracks being a private collection only. However, the studio engineer Roberto Merlini from ADM, the mastering engineer Paul Blakey from 12th & Vine Post, and the owner of Oak Records persuaded me to release the collection. I loved recording the songs and I'll be thrilled if it gives pleasure to Alexander and to anyone else. Feel free to post a comment at www.myspace.com/maggiebritton or write on my wall at www.facebook.com ---I'm a novice on facebook but I believe I have a musician page. Other sites where you'll find me are at www.oakrecords.com.au (you can buy a signed copy through Oak Records) or through Itunes for digital and at www.jazzqueensland.com under Artists."

Martin Ansell told me 28 Nov 2016: "The Beggar and the Blind Girl was produced by Rod Bowkett and Tony Mansfield at Ridge Farm some time in 1982... I will never forget the painstaking time it took to do all the breathy 'ha ha ha's'.... Those were the days when we actually performed... there were no samples.... and Tony was very precise.. bless him... It was great working with Tony... he was always a real gent... and good fun... so was his wife Maria... They also co-produced a track called Rocket Town which was supposed to be our next single.... someone has put it out on youtube as an obscure 80's track... I don't know how they got hold of it!! All the other tracks on the Bandcamp release were produced by Rod Bowkett (an unsung genius in my opinion)..."

Available from http://martinansell.bandcamp.com/album/the-quarks
This is the info from that page: "The Quarks / President President (1981- 1991 Recordings) Martin Ansell: all voices and lyrics and co-writer of the music. Rod Bowkett: all instruments/programming and co-writer of the music. "Rod Bowkett had previously been a member of college favourites Stackridge and had had songwriting success for Diana Ross and Quincy Jones, to name a few - an all round excellent musician, especially on piano and guitar. When they met in 1981, Martin Ansell was working as a session singer for various recording studios and publishers including Rockstar and Intersong. After a couple of meetings their mutual taste for stretching out the creative boundaries of pop led them to write some innovative songs which won them a deal with Magnet records. 'Mechanical' was their first single under the name 'The Quarks '.... a darkly humorous tale of techno paranoia.. it failed to ignite the charts due mainly to the labels' lack of understanding how to promote it (however now with the intervention of the internet the record has achieved cult status). There then followed a name change as the German A and R team felt that Quarks was silly as it was a brand of cheese. After weeks of exhaustive lists the decision was made to rename the group 'President President' and to bring on a known successful producer to record their next single 'All Good Men '.... another tale of paranoia.... this time in the world of private investigation. Once again promotion was poor and the Tony Mansfield produced record sank into oblivion. However Rod and Martin had written and recorded quite a few songs and although they split the group to get free from Magnet records they had another creative burst at the beginning of the 90's. Songs such as 'Drum In The Earth and 'Executive Suite' seemed too good to leave in an attic and so here are a collection of tracks now available for discernable ears."

Planet Ha Ha is Tony Mansfield, Lee Mansfield and Rob Fisher (from Naked Eyes). EMI wanted them to record this single for the movie E.T.

Besides 'Home' and 'Finders Keepers' (which was created especially for the BBC Children's TV show) an album's worth of material was recorded, but due to the legal issues pending around Home, EMI delayed releasing the album, and eventually the various members moved on to other projects leaving the recorded tracks in the archives."

June (?) 1983 various artists charity 2-LP LET THE CHILDREN PLAY

This track produced by Tony Mansfield, written by Martin Ansell. Martin Ansell told me this intersting background story 28 Nov 2016: "He [Tony Mansfield] tried to persuade EMI to put it out as a single...he believed it could be an international hit.... They didn't agree. It ended up on an anti nuclear compilation called 'Let the children play ' along side Peter Gabriel,Tom Robinson and other highly esteemed artists...destined for the bargain bins.... I have recently put a video on YouTube of 'Flagday'... I was always very proud of the track and I love the video that Stuart Wilson put together for it."

Some labels from 1982 say only Nick Straker etc was involved, while some later labels mention Tony as "produced by [...] with Tony Mansfield".

Side A was recorded at Farmyard Studios in Buckihnghamshire in Sep 1983. The two B-sides were recorded later in 1983 at Eden Studios, London.

A Canadian various artists 3-CD "HARDEST HITS" features "CCCan't You See (Extended Version) 8.10, which is a bit longer than the French Extended Mix.

In the 7" DJ Mix ('Master Mix') Tony had split the tracks to separate the drums from the rest of the instruments, allowing DJs to mix in and out at will.

There is a longer "Xtrabeat Mix" version of 8:15 to Nowhere available on this 2-CD/digital album: http://www.discogs.com/Raphael-Krickow-Welcome-To-The-Robots-Volume-1-The-Electro-Pioneers/release/3713971. I don't know when or where this version was first released.

autumn 1984 planned LP VICIOUS PINK: BLUE

Vicious Pink recorded an entire LP with Tony in the summer of 1984 (see the alphabetical list above), but it was not released. Brian Moss (of Vicious Pink) emailed me 13 June 2000, telling me this story: "I can remember recording the VP album at Ridge Farm studios in Capel near Dorking. Jose and I had a great time with Tony [Mansfield], Rob [Fisher], Pete [Byrne], Jools the engineer, Frank the studio owner, Speedy Kean {Thunderclap newman} and many more! It was the summer of 84' with nine weeks of laughter and many visits to the local pub! to drink our favorite beer Old Rodger!!! After the pub we would do some more recording or get into party mode! Once I nearly set Tony's BMW on fire trying to charge my radio controled truck up!!".

Brian told me 25 May 2012: "We did have a rough track list, but I don't have it. We wrote a short story for the album too, that's missing, it's possible that Tony still has them".

Only a couple of singles were released after this (see entries at Feb & May 1985 and 24 Jan 1986) plus a Canadian LP in 1986 with the singles plus some remixes. More recently Brian put up his site at myspace http://www.myspace.com/viciouspinkofficial where you can hear some of the unreleased tracks.

Sep 1984 non-album 7"/12" Mari Wilson: Let's Make This Last

    Let's Make This Last (De Lorean Style Mix) 4.37 / Let's Make This Last (Stereo Shift Mix) 2.36 (7": The Compact Organization, PINK 9)

    Let's Make This Last (De Lorean Style Mix) 4.37 //
    Let's Make This Last (A Bit Longer) (Stereo Shift Mix Loop One) (Extended) / Let's Make This Last (A Bit Longer) (Stereo Shift Mix Loop Two) (Suspended) 2.36 [= Stereo Shift Mix] (12": PINKX 9)

    Let's Make This Last (Club Mix) / Let's Make This Last (Radio Mix) (DJ 12": PINDJ9)

Produced by Tony Mansfield. According to Mari Wilson's official site, there was a "1984 unreleased second album", and I assume that this single was part of that project.
Back of 7" sleeve: "On the Aside is a De Lorean style mix of Let's Make This Last with all the trimmings. It pulls no punches and asks no questions. Color it pink. On the B side is a different presentation of the song in moving stereo as edited by Dave Moore. Blue is the color. Made by Men & Machines with reckless guitar solo by Colin Ryan."
Back of 12" sleeve: "On the A-side is a De Lorean style mix of Let's Make This Last with all the trimmings. It pulls no punches and asks no questions. Color it pink. On the reverse side are 2 different presentations of the song. Loop 1 is extended. Loop 2 is suspended. Both are edited by Dave Moore. Blue is the color. Made by Men & Machines with reckless guitar solo by Colin Ryan."

The tracks that Tony produced were recorded June-July 1984 at Eel Pie Studios, London. CD 4 is interesting because as far as I understand, these are all the seven tracks that Tony produced before any other producer tampered with them.

  1. 8:15 to Nowhere 2.48
  2. The Spaceship Is over There 4.18 (SLD Records Company, LD 8818/8818 CD)
This early unfinished version was more or less produced by Tony, I guess around autumn/late 1985, because the finished version of this track was released on The Cleaners from Venus' LP 'Living with Victoria Grey' in April 1986. The liner notes in the CD booklet for this track says: "Done at 3 a.m. in a very expensive studio, Ridge Farm in Sussex. Keyboards are by Clive Gates of New Musik. Recorded by Tony Phillips. Supervised, if not produced by Tony Mansfield, who thought it might be a hit song. Captain Sensible had fallen asleep in the control room. We never finished it. That's why it's only got a guide vocal on it."

  9. Communicate 4.08
  10. She Brakes for Rainbows 4.41 (US LP: WB Records, 1-25504; CD: Island, 258 380)
The B52 double-CD anthology 'Nude on the Moon' contains six tracks from this album, including two slightly shorter versions of 'Ain't It a Shame' and 'Theme for a Nude Beach' (remastered and improved sound quality). Paolo Pardo sent me an excerpt of the liner notes: "Sessions for the band's fourth album, Bouncing off the Satellites, began in the summer of '85 with producer Tony Mansfield, who had produced the likes of A-Ha and Naked Eyes and was a whiz with the Fairlight, a state-of-the-art sampling keyboard used extensively on the album. Guitarist Ricky Wilson died suddenly in October 1985, so the group was too bereaved to tour in support of the album. Additionally, the band's label neglected to promote it, and the gems of 'Bouncing off the Satellites' were lost...".

Tony's own (unreleased) 4 min 33 sec version of 'Summer of Love' was issued in June 1998 on a collection CD 'THE B-52's: TIME CAPSULE - Song for a Future Generation' (Reprise/Warner, 9362-46995-2). This is Tony's original unreleased mix, recorded in July 1985.

Iván Suárez kindly shared a link 4 May 2017 to New Musik fb discussion group of an old Spanish TV interview (apparently this interview took place 4 Nov 1987) about the recording of this LP at Ridge Farm. The program starts at 25:37, the interviews start at 29:55.

April 1988 7"/12" Bosé: Lay Down on Me

    Lay Down on Me (4.01?) / Como un lobo (7": WEA YZ 183)

    Lay Down on Me (Extended Version) // Como un lobo / Seems Like It's Midnight Forever (12": YZ 183 T)

Gary Shipes informed me: "Supposedly, Ms. Bertei recorded an entire album with Tony, but according to an article I read at the time, they absolutely DESPISED each other and she shelved it and moved back to the U.S. where she made this album. "Green Suit" is credited to Bertei/Mansfield and is very much a Tony song with lots of great chord changes and tricky contrapuntal bleeps and squiggles. However, the production by Ian Prince [or Gary Spaniola?] is generic and waters down what could have been an epiphanic Tony moment".

Special thanks to Tony, Maria, Charley and Henry Mansfield.

Kotori is a wonderful and laid back song, full of New Musik tricks a la 1980. Slowly has more rhythm and speed but still very enjoyable. Both songs feature samples from various old New Musik songs and if you took Yusa-san's vocals away, you'd have New Musik.

Recorded 9-18 Oct 1997. Tony recorded his vocals in the Metropolis Studio 17 Oct 1997. All songs written by Steve Jansen and Yukihiro Takahashi, all lyrics by Steve Jansen. There are two (tiny) photos of Tony wearing headphones in the booklet.


The seven tracks listed above were produced by Tony Mansfield, who is also credited on these for editing and programming, as well as for guitars and keyboards (Rob Fisher is also credited for keyboards on those tracks). Tony is also credited for producing the strings section on "Coming Home". Comments from Emmanuel Goedseels: 'This is not a classic 'New Musik Sound' but more in the vain of what Trevor Horn did for Seal. Very good and pure production.'

14 July 2000 CDM Brainstorm: My Star

  1. My Star 3.00
  2. My Star (instrumental) 3.00
  3. Ain't It Funny 3.35 (Microphone Records, 0724 3 888604 2)
1-2 produced by Tony Mansfield. Thanks to Richard Maycock for providing the EMI press release dated March 27th 2000: "Tony Mansfield (whose previous work includes with A-ha, the B-52s e.t.c.,) produced "My Star" in Jacob's Studios, London, England. The first time Tony heard the song it was sung in Latvian and it captured his imagination, even though he didn't understand what it was about! "But when I read the English lyrics I thought the song is really good. I am a mood person basically," Tony said. "Lyrics are important, but the mood and spirit of the song is more important and I felt a Great Spirit." Cutting the track was an intense experience and the final version was made in couple of days. Several hours before the production was completed Tony felt good about the result: "Everybody from the band seems pleased with their instrumental contributions and I added the computer work. I think this record is now the best mixture of both worlds." Brainstorm say they would love to continue their co-operation with Tony Mansfield, describing him very enthusiastic, optimistic and kind: "Tony really, really loves music, that's very important. It's also the reason Brainstorm loves Tony," said Reynard."

2 Aug 2000 Japanese 2-CD TAKAFUMI SOTOMA: ST. BIKA

Vocal and background vocals on "St. Bika" & "Here in the Sky" by Tony Mansfield. Words on 'Here in the Sky" by Takafumi Sotoma & Tony Mansfield. Gary Shipes told me about the second disc: "This copy has a bonus CD called "Radio St. Bika" that is about 28 individual snippets of songs and ideas from the main CD. Tony does a remix of one of the songs (billed as "the Tony Mansfield remix") [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o20iveb6RXI&feature=youtu.be] and even does more vocals than on the original."

Gary Shipes reviewed this CD 25 Feb 2002: "Tony's production is fine, just don't be expecting the usual New Musik tricks. He's let the band's own sound breathe, with occasional programming and guitar strums that could only come from the Master's touch. Keyboards are original but not the sonar pings and synth strings that have made his reputation. Great lyrics, vocals and musicianship make "Online" a must for the devoted Tony follower. Highly recommended. Gary in Florida."
