Boogie Box High were a musical project headed by Andros Georgiou in the late 1980s that featured a range of musical collaborations such as his cousin George Michael, guitarist Nick Heyward (of Haircut 100), keyboardist Mick Talbot (of Style Council), guitarist–songwriter David Austin, bassist Deon Estus and others.
Released in 1987 in the United Kingdom, Boogie Box High's first single "Jive Talkin'" quickly reached number one worldwide, selling over a million copies.
Georgiou's version of this Bee Gees classic was originally recorded as a demo with a studio band made up of Nick Heyward from Haircut 100 (guitar), Mick Talbot from Style Council (keyboards), and members of George Michael's studio band.
Once the demo was completed, Andros played a copy for his cousin George Michael, who instantly loved the track. George took the master tapes to Denmark's PUK Studios (where he had recorded tracks for his 8-times-platinum album Faith), and spent three days recording lead and backing vocals. Andros' vocals are still heard in the background mix.
Due to contractual obligations to Epic Records, George was never credited on the original release, although fans quickly recognized his voice, making the song an instant hit.
