Instant Hit: This Island Earth- Take Me to The Fire

"Take Me To The Fire" was one of the two singles which This Island Earth released during their brief existence in the mid 80's. The single was backed by "Pearl of Love" and it was released in 1985 by Magnet.  It was regularly played on WLIR radio during the summer 1985.

Hi there!!!

Love your blog! Yours was the only blog I could find reference to the group "This Island Earth". I have "See That Glow" and "Take Me To The Fire", but I'm trying to find their 1987 album (i assume self-titled). It's talked about here: http://www.nwoutpost.com/forum/topic.asp?ARCHIVE=true&TOPIC_ID=109
and apparently has the following tracks:

YOUR BLUE EYES
AS BIG AS ALL OUTDOORS
FEELINGS GO ON FOREVER
THIS ISLAND EARTH
TAKE ME TO THE FIRE
SEE THAT GLOW
MAN WHO COULD WORK MIRACLES
TO GET TO YOU
WHAT IS IT THAT TELLS MY HEART
SEE THAT GLOW ’87
+
Demos 1985:

HEAVEN
DIFFERENT PLACES
DRIVE
WALK ON LIGHT
CALLING YOU
THIS SITUATION

And chance you've come across any of or all of these tracks? Would you kindly share them???

Thank you!!!!

I'm glad you like my blog, but I cannot help you with that album. I only had this one song which I found on some 80's compiliation a while ago. I didn't even know they got an album out.
Thanks for the comment!

I believe that "album" never actually made it to print and distribution. There was some kind of problem with the record co. or something? Not sure. But there ya go. According to the nwoutpost.com thread, one of the former band members is a piano teacher now. Man I'd love to get in touch with him.

I bought 'See That Glow' when it came out in 1985 and remember reading that their debut album was going to be called 'Sideways Into Science'. Shame it never came out as they seemed like a very promising new band and both their singles were well-received by the music press.

You lovely person! I just typed in 'This Island Earth Take me to the fire', without really expecting a result, yet there it is!

Have not heard this since the 1980s... God, I'm getting old. Thank you SO much for this.
