CONFIRMED: Kylie To Duet With Jason | Hit Factory Box Set

No one will be surprised to find that "very special duet 23 years in the making" set to happen at the PWL Hit Factory Live fest in London's Hyde Park on July 11 is going to be Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan doing "Especially For You." According to the grapevine that is PopJustice via Contactmusic via Glamour magazine, Kylie confirmed she'll be taking the stage with her old Neighbours mate.

"I'm going to sing Especially for You with Jason Donovan," Minogue told Glamour. "I don't think we'll even need to sing it. I'm sure the audience all went through the Neighbours wedding. It's going to bring the house down! Even though it's outdoors"
Meanwhile, the above box set, Pete Waterman Presents
 The Hit Factory: The Soundtrack To A Generation
is being released on July 9. 

Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory, bursting with The Hit Factory’s biggest and best-selling singles, is to be released by PWL and Sony Music on July 9. Boasting dozens of pop masterpieces, Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory is packed with the Stock Aitken Waterman and PWL classics that came to define an era in British music history.

Stock Aitken Waterman scored an unrivalled run of global hits in the 80s and 90s, they launched the careers of Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan amongst others, and are now acknowledged as one of the most successful songwriting and producing partnerships of all time, while Pete Waterman’s PWL empire became the ‘British Motown’. Now Pete Waterman Presents The Hit Factory brings these hits together in one sensational package.

Celebrating the irresistible pop that became the soundtrack to a generation, this must-have collection contains classic hits from the likes of Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Rick Astley, Bananarama, Mel & Kim, Dead Or Alive, Steps, Sinitta, Sonia and many others. The Deluxe 3CD Edition features a third disc containing many sought-after classic 12" remixes and rarities.

I already own the Gold box set, but I will probably buy this one too. I would have loved a bit more complete release though - there are several tracks I miss from this set, including "This Time I Know It's For Real" by Donna Summer and "Everlasting Love" by Sandra...

Now, if only we could get expanded editions of Kylie's PWL albums...
