Go West - Go West (1985)

 Debiut płytowy zespołu Go West z roku 1985 wciąż zachwyca i ujmuje słuchacza swoją melodyjnością i spójnością  plus głos wokalisty, który staje się tutaj jakby dodatkowym instrumentem. Jest to niewątpliwie znaczący album w muzyce pop lat 80tych. Co ciekawsze, grupa wciaż jest aktywna, gra koncerty i wydaje płyty.
It was 1982 when Peter Cox and Richard Drummie first pulled their artistic talents together to form Go West. With only a publishing deal and a portastudio, but lacking a band or record company, Peter and Richard decided, with the help of their manager, John Glover, to find a producer, go into the studio and record two of their songs for themselves. These songs were 'We Close Our Eyes' and 'Call Me'. Within a matter of days John Glover was negotiating with Chrysalis Records and Go West signed their first record deal.
Their debut single 'We Close Our Eyes' was released in 1985 and reached number four in the UK charts, and became a top ten hit in the USA. The success of 'We Close Our Eyes' was followed by three other top ten hits; 'Call Me', 'Goodbye Girl' and 'Don't Look Down'.
Their debut self-titled album, Go West sold 1.5 million copies worldwide and established the pair not just as a chart force but as one of the great singer/songwriter duos to emerge in the 80s.
They became the focus of media attention, gracing magazine covers and making numerous TV appearances. In 1986 they won a BRIT Award for 'Best British Newcomer of 1985'.
