    I love me some classic New Wave Paul!! You always bring the old classics back into the light of day and this makes me forever grateful! PLUS!!! We can always rest assured that the quality will be stellar. You are like this sonic jeweler in that you “mine” all these gems, and “polish” them to perfection. There’s so much beauty in the beats with you DjPaulT!!!!!

    Sigh,

    Jeff

    Great post. The extended is widely issued on cd but not the instrumental, so a nice addition!

    So finally the iconic Australian band makes its debut in BTG! Thank you very much Paul, I hope that in your huge collection you also have “Ayla (Disco Mix)”.

    One of the most hypnotic 80s extended versions. Fantastic build-up starting with that Linn drum. It was huge in Germany, peaking at no.7, staying in the charts for 18 weeks. Excellente
    choice and in BTG HQ. Precious.
