In 1987 The Slightest Touch was one of Five Star's biggest hits when it reached number 4 in the UK singles charts. It was one of seven singles that were released from their Silk and Steel album. The single edit and 12" were remixed by Shep Pettibone who also famously remixed many songs by the greatest music artists of the 1980s including several of Madonna's greatest singles in the mid to late 1980s. He also remixed several singles for Five Star including Rain or Shine, If I Say Yes, Find The Time and Somewhere Somebody.
His remix of The Slightest Touch made a great pop song into a brilliant dance song.
