The Boney M. reunion of 1988, had not been such a good reunion as hoped, due to tensions between Liz Mitchell and the other 3 members, and as a result
Liz Mitchell left the group in spring 1989 to promote her solo album No One Will Force You.|
For this album, Pete Hammond from PWL remixed some of the tracks, and Frank Farian the rest. On the LP version, the tracks
Megamix and The Summer Megamix were shortened in length, in order to fit them on an LP. This album yielded 2 single releases,
The Summer Megamix, for which Madeline Davis, who had worked with the group as a backing vocalist on Boonoonoonoos, Ten Thousand Lightyears
and Eye Dance, was employed to take the place of Liz Mitchell.
Shortly after this Frank Farian announced that he had no desire to record anymore tracks with Boney M, so Marcia Barrett, Maizie Williams
Madeline Davies and Bobby Farrell got together with producer Bobby Blue to record a new single - Everybody Wants To Dance Like Josephine
Baker (without Frank's knowledge or approval), unbeknowing that Frank Farian was continuing to record a second remix album, and had asked Liz Mitchell back in to the studio to
record new vocals for Maliaka and Felicidad. The single Josephine Baker appeared late in 1989, co-inciding with the relase of the Maliaka single
, and Frank successfully had the Josephine Baker single removed from sale. After this Frank Farian rushed Liz Mitchell in to the studio to
record the new official single Stories, with the new formation of Boney M, which included Reggie Tsiboe, and within a few years of this
a number of different line ups of Boney M. would be touring the world.
