Burning The Ground: DjPaulT's 80's and 90's Remixes

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Marc Almond – Ruby Red (Re-Edited And Re-Structured) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on March 9th, 2017


“Ruby Red” was the first single taken from British singer/songwriter Marc Almond’s third studio album Mother Fist and Her Five Daughters. The single debuted on the U.K. singles chart on October 18, 1986 peaking at #47.

As with my previous Marc Almond posts this single did not appear on the recently released Marc Almond box set Trials Of Eyeliner (The Anthology 1979/2016).

The track listing is incorrect on the back of the sleeve this edition has a white sticker indicating it is an alternate edition containing the Re-Edited And Re-Structured mixes.

    Far and away my favorite record Marc has ever released in his entire career. Thank you for sharing this! Been looking for it for years- my copy is one of the “correctly” pressed editions with the instrumental version on the B-side.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    I would agree David this song has everything needed to be a masterpiece. I b-side is equally as good 🙂


  2. Jeff Says:

    Unbelievable Paul!! From someone who purchased and loves the Marc Almond “Trials Of Eyeliner (The Anthology 1979/2016),” I am so appreciative and beyond thankful for you giving us these incredible 12-inch versions that weren’t on the set. You are too kind and extremely generous. I just become this babbling mountain of emotions when it comes to you and your site. You are miraculous and such a sweetie pie for your commitment to all this fabulous music that we all love. Or, and in so many cases, WILL LOVE!!! I’ve never known anyone quite like you with this tremendous love and talent for 80’s and early 90’s dance music; well, music in general. What you do can never be repaid back. PLEASE KNOW, that I am so euphoric and blessed because of you. You are so precious!!!

    Mad love and adoration and respect!!!
