Duran Duran – Carnival (Europe 12″ EP)

Posted by DjPaulT on 17th May 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1982

35 years of “RIO”!

“Carnival” is a dance music EP by Duran Duran, originally released in various markets around the world in September 1982 by EMI.

Due to the fact that Carnival was meant to capitalise on Duran Duran’s burgeoning dance-oriented success, the tracklisting around the world differed from region to region.

The Dutch EP, released in a white sleeve with photos taken from the Rio tour book, featured twelve-inch versions – or ” Night Versions” in early Duran Duran parlance – lifted from four of the band’s more popular singles – “Hungry Like the Wolf”, “Rio”, “Planet Earth” and “Girls on Film”. There is a rare misprint of the Dutch sleeve, stating “Hold Back the Rain” to be included instead of “Planet Earth”.

The Night Version of “Girls on Film” is actually slightly different from the version that appeared on the EMI twelve-inch single, clocking in at just around 15 seconds longer, with a slighty different balance in the mix, and featuring the camera shutter clicking sound effect as heard in the short version. Also, the David Kershenbaum Night Version mix of “Rio” was commercially exclusive to this EP (it also featured on an American promo twelve-inch), as the “Rio” twelve-inch single featured “Rio” (Pt II) as the lead mix.

3 Speed – Once Bitten (US 7″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 15th October 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Once Bitten” is the title track of the 1985 horror/comedy film of the same name. “Once Bitten” was performed by Synth rock band 3 Speed. The band was formed in Boston, Massachusetts, USA led by frontwoman Linder Chase.

The band was discovered after their manager sent a demo tape to a studio in Los Angeles, completely unbeknownst to the band members. An executive was listening to their demo tape on a radio on his desk when Samuel Goldwyn, Jr. walked by, heard Linda Chase singing, and said that he wanted the band on a plane the following weekend.

In addition to “Once Bitten,” another song by the band called “Stop Talking About Us” was used by MCA/Curb Records on the aforementioned soundtrack. This song was not written for the movie, but was actually a demo that the band had previously recorded. The version that appears on the soundtrack album is the demo.

3 Speed enjoyed considerable success after the release of the Once Bitten soundtrack; at one point they were even opening for Pat Benatar. MCA Records, however, never petitioned the band to record a full-length LP, commissioning them instead to write songs for more soundtracks, including those for Rad and Savage Streets.

Chase continues to write & perform music and work in recording studios.

This US only 7″ promo contains the same track on both sides.
