About Eye Dance [Bonus Tracks]

Eye Dance is the eighth and final studio album by the vocal group Boney M., released in 1985. The cover artwork was significant of the state the group was in at that time, as neither the famous "Boney M." logo nor the group members appeared on the cover, replaced by an anonymous drawing. Eye Dance was recorded with a number of session singers. Original group members Liz Mitchell and Marcia Barrett only appeared on a few of the tracks, the main focus being on Reggie Tsiboe. The singles "My Cherie Amour" and "Young Free and Single", promoted by Boney M. as a quintet with former group member Bobby Farrell back in the line-up, as well as the album were resounding failures both critically and commercially and in early 1986 the band and producer Frank Farian went their separate ways after a "10 Years Boney M." anniversary TV special. The group's cover of 10cc's "Dreadlock Holiday" had been planned as the third single in January 1986 but was cancelled - instead "Daddy Cool '86" was released though this failed to chart anywhere. In the summer of 1986, after the members had gone their separate ways, Farian released "Bang Bang Lulu", and in 1987 Farian re-recorded "Dreadlock Holiday" with his own lead and backing vocals and released it as a single under the pseudonym Top Deck in Germany. The Farian solo version appears in remixed form on 1993 hits compilation More Gold - 20 Super Hits Vol. II
