80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

David Bowie – Day-In Day-Out (Groucho Mix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on February 3rd, 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

A. Front

“Day-In Day-Out” is the first track on David Bowie’s album Never Let Me Down. It was issued as a single in March 1987, ahead of the album’s release.

Bowie wrote the song out of concern for the treatment of the homeless in the US. The song’s R&B roots were reminiscent of some of Bowie’s R&B work in the 1970s with one author saying that the song is “an example of Bowie’s strength in the R&B genre.”

The single’s B-side, “Julie,” was described by one reviewer as the “catchiest” song of all the songs from Never Let Me Down, and lamented that the song was relegated to b-side status

This Limited Edition US 12″ contains the “Groucho Mix” remixed by Paul “Groucho” Smykle and is only commercially available on this 12″. It did also appear on a UK 12″ promo.

    Wow Paul!! You’re making me delirious for these “Day-In Day-Out” remixes. I’m so appreciative for all the time spent extracting the sounds from these classic Bowie records. I know it’s his legacy you’re celebrating, but I celebrate your legacy for the phenomenal work you do to bring us the very best in music.

    Humbled,

    I’ve been a Bowie fan since 1987, so it’s been great listening to these 12″ versions again, Day-In Day-Out had a few versions on vinyl including a Spanish Version, this was a time when remixes sounded like the originals, just extended!
    These have been fantastic posts Paul, and it’s great you have kept your vinyl collection, and what a great collection to have.

    I would love to see Duran Duran’s Nite Romantics, Carnival, Tiger! Tiger! and Strange Behaviour Eps in 24 Flac, even though I have them on cd, I just love those covers you scan, it’s like seeing those designs new for the first time.

    Thank You!

    Thanks for another great post, Paul. One question – you say this was available only on this US 12″ and a UK promo, so is it different from the mix on the UK remix 12″ – 12 EAX 230? Sorry, I’m being lazy as I could compare the two, but just wondered if you knew 🙂

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Pretty sure it is the same mix Jonathan I must have over looked that release 🙂

    Very nice…to see this rare 12 Inch. Thanks.

    I would love to see some rare 12 Inches also from the beginning of the 90’s.

    For an example the “Fame 90” with the longest Version (in my opinion) ever released for a DB Single Fame 90 Absolutely Nothing Premeditated / Epic Mix – Running time 14:24 out of the US 12 Inch EMI USA ‎– V-56163).

    But I must admit that all singles from the 90’s (also from artist who are starting in the 80s with 12Inches with only Extended Mixes) suffering from the overkill with versions and remixes.

    But esp. David Bowie has also some excellent mixes on these 90’s 12 Inches like the above mentioned Fame 90 Mix. Also the rare US 12 Inch form Savage (SADJ-50045-1) for “Black Tie White Noise is very interesting.

    But first of all thanks Paul for your efforts…very appreciated.

    After all this Day-In Day-Out mixes I still favourise the single version. Anyway a marvelous
    effort to bring us Bowies 12″ legacy closer!

  12. Joey Says:

    This is such a great series and tribute. I missed a few of these the first and second time around, It is such a treat to get a chance to hear some of these more obscure versions, and so perfect too, so much of this era of his music has been left behind in the record crates. Thanks again Paul for giving these songs a second spin.
