Rick Astley – Together Forever (Super Dub Remix) (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 7th November 2013

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1988

Side A

“Together Forever” 1988 Super Dub Remix mixed by Pete Hammond for PWL.

A very rare 12″ release from Crocodile Records in the USA, giving you the very hard to get SUPER DUB Remix of Rick’s US #11 hit single “Together Forever” and a MEGAMIX on the flip side including “Don’t Say Goodbye”, “Never Gonna Give You Up”, “Whenever You Need Somebody” & “Together Forever”.

TThe mastering on this record is pretty good considering it was released on an independant label. There is a bit of a drop out during the end fade of both tracks but it doesn’t really affect the enjoyment of the record.

SDE A:
Together Forever (Super Dub Remix) 6:15
Engineer – Mark McGuire
Mixed By – Pete Hammond
Written-By – Stock – Aitken – Waterman*

SIDE B:
R. A. Megamix 9:38
Ba Don’t Say Goodbye
Bb Never Gonna Give You Up
Bc Whenever You Need Somebody
Bd Together Forever

Vinyl: Near Mint
