    Thanks Paul

    I always like the arrangement of album version more.

    The other early DOA song I love is “I’d do anything”, by any chance you have the version on the music video? 🙂

    Victor I have the 12″ and 10″ singles. I know the 12″ doesn’t contain that version but the 10″ might i’ll have to check.

    Thanks for this! Could you repost the UK 12″ clean and dirty versions? It’s a real head turner.

    Hi Jeff. Yeah I am planning to re-rip it with my newer equipment.

    The SV is actually NOT identical to the regular 7″ mix released in other countries! The thunderstorm effect that was the introduction to the UK / European / Japanese 7″ singles was edited almost completley out of the US mix. But it was released on the US commercial edition, so it’s not as hard to find as the LV is here.

  7. David Says:

    BTW- the I’d Do Anything video mix is available on the 7″ & 10″ singles as well as the recently released Greatest Hits CD “That’s The Way I Like It: The Best Of Dead Or Alive” (which contains all the 7″ mixes released in the UK, many for the first time on CD!)

    Jermajesty Reply:

    Just giving this a proper listen now… what a frikkin ace song. (I don’t listen to it that often.)

    I think if SAW hadn’t bled this sound to death, the rest of the world would remember DoA so much more positively.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Totally agree!

  10. ric Says:

    Thanks for the LV, Paul. Never knew of its existence too. But you being the DOA megafan, would treat us with these surprises!
    This in fact is the best chart performing single in the UK from the Mad & Bad era, partly thanks to the weak single sales and lack of new releases in January.
    Brand New Lover didn’t even make the Top 30! A crime!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Definate crime! For some reason I always thought these singles were massive hits. Maybe because I loved them so much lol.
