    Fantastic piece of music – thank you. I have the UK CD Single which includes the 7″ & an unnamed extended 5.20 mix but . . . do you have this ‘Extended Exclusive Mix’?

    It’s great!

    Great choice – if anyone could deliver the 12″ of Only The Moment – http://www.discogs.com/Marc-Almond-Only-The-Moment/release/1524851 – not for the A side, but for the sublime 10 minute mix of “She Took My Soul In Istanbul” on the flip, I’d be forever indebted… my copy disappeared years ago and is much missed!

    The 10 minute Istanbul mix is on the Treasure Box album, which is available in iTunes.

    Wow, the release of that compilation completely passed me by! Thanks for the info 🙂

  11. ric Says:

    Truly underrated chartwise as a soloist.
    Love the latin flavour Marc flirted with during this period, and the Strauss remixes really upped the single a few notches!
    Thanks for another great rip, Paul!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I always thought that Marc Almond was very underrated he is so talented and a wonderful songwriter. Love him 🙂

    Thanks again for another awesome post.
    Does anyone know off-hand if this is the same mix as “The La Magia Dance Mix”?
    They’re similar times, I haven’t had a chance to compare.
    They use to play a great mix on KROQ in LA, I’m hoping this is it, or possible the edit.

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I am not familiar with that mix Cdmaniac maybe someone else will know. I love the Edit and dub 🙂

    [Reply]

    kfb Reply:

    The “La Magia Dance Mix” appears to be the same mix as the “Extended Exclusive Mix” that was made available on the Offbeat sampler someone mentioned above, although the Offbeat mix I have fades out a little earlier. It’s easily my favorite mix of this song. Available on iTunes as part of the Treasure Box album.

    Sergio Reply:

    No,The La Magia Dance Mix was released in the UK only on 12″ and later on the Treasure Box 2CD box set.

  13. Jermajesty Says:

    I could sing you any Soft Cell song backwards, but somehow Marc’s solo work pretty much passed me by. I did remember this one once I played it though. 😀

    Have you heard his cover of Like A Prayer from 1992? I think coz of his style at the time, he suited it better than Madonna.

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    That’s a great version! It was recorded in 1992 don’t think it was ever released as a single but it is on a compilation called “Ruby Trax”.

    [Reply]

    Jermajesty Reply:

    Yeah, it was made specially and exclusively for Ruby Trax (it was a charity compilation), as were all the other artists’ cover versions.

    Justin Strauss has posted the two longer mixes in AIFF on his Soundcloud page as free downloads (from the original master I imagine).
