Mel & Kim
F.L.M. (Deluxe Edition)

The First and Only Studio Album by the British Pop Duo

One of the best-remembered acts of the 80s, cockney sisters Mel & Kim Appleby instantly conquered dance floors, charts and hearts around the world with their style, personality and a string of perfect pop anthems! And their classic album 'F.L.M.' is now given a much-anticipated Deluxe Edition 2 CD reissue on Cherry Pop!

Produced by Stock Aitken Waterman, the album reached Number 3 on its original release in April 1987, going platinum in the UK and topping the charts internationally with sales in excess of three million copies!

'F.L.M.' features three UK Top Ten hits 'Showing Out (Get Fresh At The Weekend)', the classic Number 1 'Respectable' and the title track. Digitally re-mastered and compiled from original master tapes archived at Abbey Road and Pete Waterman's PWL Studios, this release features no less than 19 exclusive bonus tracks across two discs, including the 1988 Top Ten hit, 'That's The Way It Is' and its self-penned B-side, 'You Changed My Life'. Both tracks are included alongside the 'F.L.M.' album for the first time ever!

Kim Appleby has generously contributed an exclusive commentary to this release, to boot! The extensive booklet features a reversible cover, an illustrated discography, additional photos and brand new sleeve notes from PWL consultant Tom Parker.

Mel & Kim's debut single, 'Showing Out', hit Number 3 in November 1986, and in February 1987 'Respectable' became the first Stock Aitken Waterman composition to top the charts!

Combining a streetwise pop sensibility with transatlantic house grooves, Mel & Kim became a global sensation!
