Especially For You ~ The Hit Factory Singles [1980’s]

I was quite a fan of Stock, Aitken & Waterman (SAW) back in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, and am happy to admit I still am! An old school friend won some tickets on the radio to one of their live road shows in Bristol (1989 or 1990 I think). I know Sonia performed, but for the life of me can’t remember who else did!
