    Thanks Paul. Do you also have 12″ single Heartbeat City?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Sorry I don’t Omar is it a remix?


    OMAR Reply:

    i think it’s just the album version. It was a UK single.

    Great re-rip, Paul!
    is the dub version of the 7″ (5.02) an edit of this 12″ dub version (6.11) ?

    have you got also
    Sharpe & Numan “Change your mind” or/and Sharpe & Niles “Famous people” ?
    many thanks.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Not sure if it’s an edit BE.D12” I don’t have the 7″ to check. I have “Change Your Mind” will post it when I can 🙂


    NKelly Reply:

    Awesome would love a Sharpe + Numan 12″. Do you have much in the way of Numan in any guise?

    Paul!!! You’ve started my engine running rapidly!! I am so EXCITED for this re-rip!! Arthur Baker’s mix was fantastic, and I do have it on a couple of CD compilations, but I am living for the dub version!! I wish Arthur Baker visited here because I’d love to ask him about this mix!! There’s all sorts of (I think) Warner Bros.’ character sound effects in the mix, like Bugs Bunny and the Road Runner. The “Meep Meep” like when the coyote went over the cliff and you hear “Hello. Hello Again.” Such an interesting mix. And those great orchestral stabs and Latin Rascal edits!! Oh, isn’t that the Jaws theme somewhere too in the mix? The John Williams’ fugue he created. A shark saying, “hello”. Oh, I don’t know, I’m just jazzed that you’ve brought this Arthur Baker powerhouse back to our ears. You are jaw-dropping and ear-opening and heart-fluttering AMAZING DjPaulT. I love you so much!!!

    You’re welcome Jeff. This mix and 12″ is out of this world I also love all of the effects poured into this one Arthur Baker and company really pulled out all the stops on this project. So hopefully someone will compare the sound quality of the old rip with this new transfer. I alwys wonder if the new ones sound better 🙂

    Jeff, I have always loved the Dub mix as well…especially given the age/timeframe of this song and the tools back then. To help you out on some of the specific samples on the dub:

    2:40 (and sampled/sped up later) is the beginning of Mickey’s Monkey by Smokey Robinson and the Miracles

    3:20 “uh oh” is Bugs Bunny

    3:52 laugh “he he he what?” is Bugs Bunny again…I believe from the Halloween special where he is at Hansel and Gretel’s house with the witch

    5:32-5:40 Bugs again

    on the Remix:

    5:02 that fall and explosion is definitely Warner Brothers probably Wiley Coyote


    Jeff Reply:

    Hey Fred!!

    Thanks so much for this awesome info concerning the mix. It’s so cool to have someone who really gets into things as much as I do. Ah, the old days when sampling went rampant and crazy ideas and manual tape editing was the state of the art! I am so blessed to have Paul in my life because he’s preserving these ignored “extra” mixes that the compilations ignore. No one does it better than Paul. This guy’s an artisan as well. I could almost see his name on a record label because he cares so much for the music and the….MIX!!

    It’s great to have you too in this community Fred. You’ve made my day!!

    Hey Jeff, Fred and Paul,
    I am fairly sure most of the Bugs Bunny samples came from the 1979 Bugs Bunny/Road Runner movie (mostly classic toons strung together by new animation) – I recoded it on Beta from HBO and watched it over and over. So, I knew most of the clips by heart. Samples from the Bullfighter cartoon are used several times.

    Also, at the time, this was about the only way to get sound bites from WB toons, unless you got lucky and recorded them on afternoon/Saturday mornings.

    You know, on the Redbull interview with Baker, he confessed to doing a lot of drugs, which to me, explains a lot about how amazingly crazy these awesome remix and dubs are.


  4. Meddows Says:

    Wow, this is a great mix! Thank You, Paul!

    Do you have “Secret Service (1981) Flash In The Night (Canada “12)”?


    DjPaulT Reply:

    sorry Meadows I don’t have that 12″ at this time as more donations come in I will do mt best to get a copy 🙂
