    I love when you post something that has a Razormaid! remix on it. Looking forward to hearing your rip Paul to compare it with Joseph’s original. You have a nice brightness to your rips which I adore. Joseph is all about quality as well, but I do like your touch when it comes to mastering.

    Thanks for another cool jam and all you do consistently. Your awesomeness can’t be beat!

    Fondly,

    Jeff

    Great Paul (as always)
    because you’ve ripped the complete 12″ with the Razormaid version!
    the 2010 reissue of the album Automation by Cherry Red, missed the extended version.
    what a shame!

    have you got also Pete Wylie “Sinful”?
    thanks, I respect you!

    According to Discogs, this was released in Australia in 1985. I suppose living in a dead-end town away from the clever city folk is the reason why I’ve never heard of it. Thanks for the education Paul – you are a constant source of “I did not know that” moments!

    Stephen I have those moments a lot when I am working on each project 🙂

    Another 80s synth classic! Never was impressed with the Razormaid mixes, probably have them all (mp3 only), not that I consider them bad, just nothing special. But this mix must be some of his best work. On the Blank & Jones CD compilation So80s 6, there is a different Razormaid mix of this song which is 24 seconds longer. It’s clearly the same author but slightly different arrangement and an extremly different mastering on the CD!

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Davos I never cared much for the So80s compilations they just don’t sound that great in my opinion and mastered way too loud. I think the mix they used was the Razormaid version from the actual remix service because it has the same duration 7:45. The vinyl remix runs 7:24/25.

  10. Davos Via 45 Says:

    Yes, Paul, that’s what I ment with “extremly different mastering”, not only is the mastering too loud, but the songs sound completely different 🙁 which is Such A Shame LOL pun intended, cause the tracklisting is phenomenal and they got the original masters, a real waste!
