I recently talked about what Single Versions (or what versions are on the album), of youthquake & mad, bad & dangerous to know. Thought I would do this one next. So nude was the 4th album by dead or alive. It was the end of them working with SAW & Pete & Steve were the only 2 still in the band. So both of them worked on it alone together & Pete said in an interview that he thought it was his best work. However in a newer interview he said he wanted another hit (Come home), so he could leave & not show his face again. Technically it's really a Pete burns album with Steve working on instrumentals, but I think the label thought it Would sell better under the band name, plus they were signed under that name. Here's the info about what versions are on this
Turn around & count 2 ten - it used the 12" version that was used in the video, but it had a vocal intro & was slightly shorter. This album continued into each track so the ending goes into the next song
Baby Don't Say Goodbye - the album version uses a different intro, but it's pretty much close to the extended mix. Every mix was pretty much the same it just used a different intro & some extended instrumental parts or edited down parts.
Come Home With Me Baby - This was rerecorded & remixed for its single release. Like they always did, at least one or 2 songs off the album would be remixed a lot or slightly & at least one would be rerecorded. I'm pretty sure it only used a few new vocals, but the instrumental was completely different. This is the only song on the album that isn't close to the single version, besides the vocals because only some are different on the Single Mix.
Now there is a bonus track Version of this album. It had baby don't say goodbye (alternative mix) which was pretty much the radio edit. Give It Back That Love is mine instrumental. I'm not sure why it was put on as a bonus track but I personally love the instrumental. Then love you instrumental. This is probably the only reason to by the bonus track version besides the album artwork. It had the unreleased song from the album, but sadly it was like a 2 minute instrumental. The boxset just released has the full Version of love Toy. The instrumental on this has a slightly different intro & maybe was an early instrumental mix. Also Japan's artwork for each version is different. It has Pete in a blue / grey background with chains & hes wearing chains in the photos on the cover. I think the cover is better then the flower one, but the flower one probably goes better with the theme. I'm sure the record company said no to the chained cover, but they allowed it for Japan.

While Youthquake put Dead or Alive firmly on the pop/dance map, for me it was always Nude that captured my heart. Here is Dead or Alive in all their glory (pun intended), unabashedly dramatic, romantic, rolling around on a bed of roses and crying their eyes out over lost love. Pete Burns chews up every lyric, and why the emotional timbre of the album hovers somewhere around a 14 year old girl's, there's no denying this is one of the silliest and most fun pop albums of the late 80's.

Replacing Stock/Aitken/Waterman's production with their own poses less of a problem than you might think here, and Burns and company show they are no slouches putting together an album, and have their own arsenal of cracking, thumping, widescreen pop production tricks up their sleeves. "Come Home With Me Baby", "Turn Around and Count 2 Ten", and "Baby Don't Say Goodbye" anchor the album with singles strong enough to match anything on Youthquake or Mad,Bad, but you'd be hard-pressed to find a song on the album that isn't a rollicking, raucous good time (only "I Don't Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" lags a bit).

Dead or Alive may have always been more about sex and a glamorous pout than anything resembling thoughtful gravitas, but on this album, they found what they were good at, and they did it better than almost anyone else.

Close your doors, put on your headphones, and give it a listen.

I promise, I won't tell anyone you liked it.
