Duran Duran – I Don’t Want Your Love (UK 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on June 17th, 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

A Side Label

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on May 18, 2010. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12? is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“I Don’t Want Your Love” is the seventeenth single from Duran Duran and the first single from the Big Thing album. It was released on September 1988. As with the album, the band’s name was rendered on the artwork as Duranduran.

“I Don’t Want Your Love” both debuted and peaked at number 14 in the UK, but did much better in the rest of Europe, especially in Italy where it spent six non-consecutive weeks at number 1, and was the best-selling single of 1988 in that country. It also did very well in the U.S., reaching number 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and number 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart.

In the UK a promo 12″ includes the dub mix of “I Don’t Want Your Love”, which was unreleased elsewhere until 1999’s Strange Behaviour remix collection (which strangely didn’t use the lead 12″ mix entitled “Big Mix”).

    I didn’t notice it at first, but that’s one austere sticker for a vinyl record! And it’s still official.
    Nevertheless, I love this song.

    Hugs

    Great seeing this 12″ single being posted again. The “Big Mix” remains one of my all-time favourite remixes/extended versions from my teen years – CLASSIC!

    Being a bit too young to have lived in their early 80s imperial phase, I got to know Duran Duran mainly by the singles from 1988’s “Big Thing”. Thanks for the rip, it’s great!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    “Big Thing” is a good one to start with Michael 🙂

  11. Ray in Australia Says:

    I swear you read my mind Paul! I recently bought the “Big Mix” on a Blank & Jones compilation thru i-tunes. It certainly was sourced from the original master tapes BUT the loudness was so extreme that the bassline distorted everything else in the track.
    I was so gutted that I contemplated “maybe I should write to DJPaul”
    Now I don’t have to!! 😀
    Thank you kind sir

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Yeah that happens many times with CD remasters they try to make the audio louder then it clips and causes distortion. That is why BTG is a clip free zone 🙂

    Seeing as we’re on a roll with the illustrious Shep Pettibone, I’m wondering if you happen to have Shep’s remixes for Janet Jackson’s “Alright”. My UK 12″ was a prized possession until one of my “friends” stole it in the early 90’s.
    No pressure btw 😉

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Think I have the US 12″ around here somewhere I will try to post it at some point 🙂

    As a Shep fan, I really hope you d/l’d this already:

    http://burningtheground.net/2010/06/the-communards-never-can-say-goodbye-us-12-promo/

    That’s my prized Shep mix. He kinda went off the deep end with the circus calliope at the end, and most subsequent releases of that mix had an early fade before it got there. If I recall, it went unreleased commercially until the recent Edsel reissue of Red.

    In fact, this “full” version also fades, so God knows how long the original work is. 😀

    Great post. I have the original 3″ CD single (remember those short lived things?) which I bought when the 12″ came out instead of the vinyl. Sounds great, but it doesn’t have the Dub that was on this UK version, so thanks much 🙂

    Would you happen to have the US version of the “Carnival” EP you could post up by chance? That’s the only Duran that’s missing in my vinyl collection. I bought just about every single thing they ever released on vinyl from ’81 – ’89 when they were new but the US “Carnival” (in my area at the time, the local record stores only carried the Holland and Japan import versions only for some reason).

    Goodguy Reply:

    I’d love to see Carnival or Tiger Tiger here. 🙂

    Thanks for posting Paul, The Dub Mix was included in the official CD single edition of the song back in 1988 ( I have it ).

    Not in the US unfortunately
