    Ooh Wee Paul!! It doesn’t get better than this!! So excited about these Yello singles with Billy!! Wow, all the work you do for us, I’m absolutely stunned with the final results. You are an Angel in every sense. Thanks TREMENDOUSLY for this. I’m really touched by the skill you have. Really, really touched.

    Most Humbly,

    I’m loving your transition via Billy MacKenzie to Yello, who always sound absolutely contemporary yet years ahead of their time. Thank you, as always.


    Jeff Reply:

    Amen to that VanceMan!! Yello really is an incredible band. They are so cinematic and exotic and so futuristic in their execution of sounds and samples. I always got a kick how stereo equipment sales persons always used a Yello disc as a demonstration in sound to their customers. They can do no wrong in my book. I’m loving how our DjPaulT brings out the beauty in their vinyl releases. I am sailing on a high-note today. Paul has mad skillz! Tenfold!!!!!!!!!

    mmmmmmm…double dose of ear candy from Switzerland…I admit, I could listen to Boris Blanks 80s sound excursions FOREVER…
    The 12″ mix can also be found on the remastered album CD One Second, as a bonus track in excellent sound quality.

    Paul, Thanks so much all the Associates and I am grateful for more Billy and how appropriate that it’s with Yello. I always liked the Associates and love Billy MacKenzie (RIP), and it was only through Billy that I got into Yello. Prior to that, I just remembered them from Ferris Bueller and all I thought of when I saw their name was “Oh Yeah” (“oh no!”) I wondered how they had so many releases, but couldn’t understand why, yet I never gave them a chance. Then, with all thanks to Billy, I heard the Rhythm Divine and became a fan. I thank you again for all you share with us and would love to hear more Billy. I wish they’d release some Associates/Billy on DVD, such as the Ronnie Scot’s show or whatever else is available. I was slightly disappointed that the Associates reissues didn’t have any DVD material. In the meantime, I hope this is appropriate, here is a nice 40 minute doc on our boy Billy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnSi2MNYYRA

    Thanks again for sharing your gems with us! Best wishes!

    Yello is awesome. Thanks for this share Paul.
