Mondo Kane’s debut single featured vocals by Coral Gordon and Dee Lewis with guest vocals by Georgie Fame.
Georgie Fame (born Clive Powell, 26 June 1943) is a British rhythm and blues and jazz singer, and keyboard player. The one-time rock and roll tour musician, who had a string of 1960s hits, is still a popular performer, often working with contemporaries such as Van Morrison and Bill Wyman.
Fame is the only British pop star to have achieved three number one hits with his only Top 10 chart entries: “Yeh Yeh” in 1964, “Getaway” in 1966 and “The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde” in 1967.
“New York Afternoon” was written and Produced by Stock/Aitken/Waterman and mixed by Mixmaster Phil Harding.

In 1986, Stock, Aitken & Waterman, despite some hit singles with Bananarama and Dead Or Alive, had yet to achieve chart domination but the projects they were involved with were certainly interesting.
The producer’s output for the year included the “Kiss The Lips Of Life” LP by Brilliant, further singles from the Princess album, “Venus” by Bananarama, Dead Or Alive’s “Brand New Lover” and singles by Haywoode and The Three Degrees.
Unfortunately, there were also a number of releases which failed to chart including O’Chi Brown’s “100% Pure Pain”, Splash’s “Qu’est-ce Que C’est”, Morgan/McVey’s “Looking Good Diving” and a pair of singles by Mondo Kane.
“New York Afternoon” and “An Everlasting Love In An Ever-Changing World” both featured Coral Gordon and Dee Lewis on vocals while Stock, Aitken & Waterman and the infamous A.Linn (pseudonym for the drum machine) provided the instrumentation.
