    Thank you SO MUCH for this post, Paul! PSB are my favourite group ever! Do you happen to have “The Shep Pettibone Mastermix” 12″ of “West End Girls”? We could all use a good rip of this!

    Hi George I do have that 12″ and plan on posting it at some point. Stay tuned 🙂

    Thanks for this Paul! 🙂

    Speaking of contemporary rarities, the Love To Hate You Italian promo 12″ from Erasure was one of the uber-rarities, aside from the Sire KROQ Sessions cassingle, or Ltd Edt UK 12″ of Heavenly Action, to have in the pre-mp3 days:

    http://www.discogs.com/Erasure-Love-To-Hate-You/release/2069700

    If you ever run across that, it would be a welcome rip as well!

    Although, personally, I’d love the Heavenly Action L12″ a bit more.
    http://www.discogs.com/Erasure-Heavenly-Action-Yellow-Brick-Mix/release/208994

    Supposedly, there was a promo or bootleg with an even longer version of one or both of the mixes on that one too.

    Wow! A bit of a latecomer to your blog, but thanks so much for posting this.
    I’m not normally much of a fan of the megamix, however when it’s messrs Tennant & Lowe being mixed it’s bound to be genius – and it is!

  18. Arthur Says:

    So much incredible material here, but I thought this and Giorgio Moroder’s Chase were a good place to start. Thank you so much!
