Vanity - Faraway Eyes

I love Faraway Eyes by Vanity from Action Jackson and I think it's her best vocal performance. The song suits her voice so well. Was it released as a single? If not it should have been. I really want the Action Jackson CD but it is ridiculously expensive 2 buy online. The record company should do a re-issue. I also think their should be a Best Of Vanity CD. After her death I thought there would have been SOMETHING 2 commemorate her acting and music career but there has been nothing

Her music and films were often cheesy and borderline camp but I really enjoyed them nevertheless.

This song was written and produced by Jesse Johnson.He did a superb job with Vanity.On this track,her vocals sound better than ever.

I don't think it was released as a single.I have the Action Jackson soundtrack on vinyl.I agree,there should be a Vanity 'Best Of' CD containing her Motown material,plus "7th Heaven" (from the 'Last Dragon' soundtrack,and the two tracks that she recorded for Action Jackson.

"Faraway Eyes" & "Undress" were both produced by Jesse Johnson, from the "Action Jackson" Soundtrack. Both Songs were/are AWESOME!!! And it makes Me wonder "What If": A FULL project on Vanity, produced by Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis.....OOH WHEE!!!!

cool

There is also another song by Vanity on the AJ soundtrack called 'Shotgun' that she did with Dave Koez. I have not heard it tho.
