The last single from Thereza Bazar’s one and only solo album was “Too Much In Love”, produced by Arif Mardin and written by Thereza and Terry Britten who had penned a number of Cliff Richard hits in the 70’s and 80’s and co-wrote Tina Turner’s mega hits “What’s Love Got To Do With It”, “Typical Male” and “We Don’t Need Another Hero”.
After taking up residency in Australia for an extended period, Thereza returned to London in 2012 and released a single under the monikor “TnA Project”, a collaboration with Alan Connor.
A CD release of Thereza’s album “The Big Kiss” is reportedly in the works so hopefully a number of tracks from the 12″ singles will finally be made available again.

Thereza Bazar (born 23 May 1955) is a British-Canadian singer, best known as one half of the pop duo, Dollar.
Bazar first found fame in her teens as a member of 1970s group Guys ‘n’ Dolls, who scored a 1975 hit with There’s A Whole Lot Of Lovin’ and went on to have a short hit career, which also included Here I Go Again, a composition by the 17-year-old Bazar. Disillusioned with the direction of the band, she and then-boyfriend and fellow band mate David Van Day broke away to form Dollar in 1977. Their hits started with Shooting Star in 1978, and continued, on and off, until “Oh L’amour” hit the Top Ten across Europe in the late 1980s.
Bazar released one solo album in 1985 called The Big Kiss, which she co-wrote. It was produced by Arif Mardin and featured the singles “The Big Kiss” and “Too Much in Love”. The album reportedly cost half a million pounds to produce and generated media attention, but according to Bazar, the album’s circulation was poor due to a mix-up at the record company, with the album unavailable at the time of its advertised release. Today Bazar mentions the incident as the most upsetting of her career, but she has high regard for the album, saying it had “a strong pedigree”.
The 12″ version of the “The Big Kiss” was remixed by Stock/Aitken/Waterman.
