    Icons of the 80’s. Many 12 inches were released on CD over the past years, but there are lots of unreleased promotional stuff just waiting to be ripped… by you Paul! You are more than welcome to post as much Hall & Oates promos and 12 inches as you want. What a treat that will be!

    But it’s Disco Friday next! 1978, Warner, Jim Burgess, question mark in the title, 6:29 minutes…..:)

    The Dynamic Duo Of Pop!
    Really love them especially in the first half of the 80s!
    If I’m not wrong, this is only available in the UK, where the single was released twice. First released in Oct 1984 with the more common Arthur Baker, it peaked at #48.
    It was released again in June 1985 with this Video Mix, peaking only at #62 this second time.
    I guess the reason behind this re-release is due to the fact that the second single Methods Of Modern Love did well and almost cracked the UK Top 20, and the record company thought they could give Out Of Touch another shot there.
    Thanks for this Video Mix in your BTG Rip, Paul! You’re never out of touch here!

    Thanks for the great post! To my knowledge, the video mix of Out of Touch was only ever released on CD via a greatest hits package a few years ago – ‘Playlist: The Very Best of Daryl Hall & John Oates’.

    I’ll go out on a limb and predict your vinyl rip will sound way better. Cheers!

    I have the US commercially available 12″ for the extended mix that clocks in at about 7:35. I too was never aware that the video mix was released. I always thought the extended into was very cool. I too love Hall & Oates… I think they in some ways are my generations Barry Mannilow. Cool and Smooth

    Awesome share, Paul! I’ve never been a big rock music fan but somehow Hall & Oates stood out for me. What a classy act! Then again their style are more soul than rock? I love everything they have released with Out of touch, Private Eyes and Kiss on my list being my personal 3 best singles. Out of touch still sounds great in 2012. A pity there was never a true 12″ mix of Private Eyes ever made?

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Thanks Jan! Those are three of my favorites by them too 🙂

    Great rip!!! There’s an another remix called Rockamerica Remix, which is quite similar to this video mix.. any comment please.

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Thank you Chris. I have never heard the Rockamerica remix.

    [Reply]

    DLG Reply:

    Chris, I believe the “Rockamerica” remix is a modern (fan-made?) edit of the Out Of Touch video.

    The official Video Mix is a combination of “Dance On Your Knees” and an edit of the 12″ Arthur Baker Remix of the main “Out Of Touch” song.

    But with the Rockamerica remix it seems someone made a custom edit of the Arthur Baker 12″ Remix and edited the music video to synch up with it – though it doesn’t synch very well. They also added visual effects to the video that weren’t common / available in 1984. You can see the video here:

    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&ved=0CCsQtwIwAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DzwPqaYzedPU&ei=UczAUOncGorhiALn1oH4BQ&usg=AFQjCNHM-nrjRl7ckmyS2BCVwakW685VHA

    There are Rockamerica remix vieos posted for several artists on YouTube, which follow the same style as this one.
