Duran Duran – Do You Believe In Shame? (UK 10″ Limited Edition)

Posted by DjPaulT on 2nd October 2017


BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1989

I originally had something else planned for today but after waking to the news of the unconscionable act of terrorism in Las Vegas my plans quickly changed. I wanted to post something to convey the heart break and sadness that so many of us are feeling on this awful day. I don’t have any profound words to say except that I am sending Love & Light to all of those who are suffering.

-Paul

“Do You Believe In Shame?” is a song by Duran Duran. Released on 10 April 1989, it was the third and final single from the Big Thing album.

The song was dedicated to three of the band’s dead friends: record producer Alex Sadkin, artist Andy Warhol and Simon Le Bon’s childhood friend David Miles. Le Bon has since said that “Shame” is the first part of a trilogy of songs written as a tribute to Miles, the other songs being “Ordinary World” and “Out of My Mind”.

The LSD Edit”, a previously promo-only edit of Big Thing album tracks “The Edge Of America” and “Lake Shore Driving” finally had its commercial debut, “LSD” presumably an acronym for “Lake Shore Driving”. The song was renamed “The Krush Brothers LSD Edit” for release on the “Do You Believe In Shame?” single.

“Notorious (Live)”, recorded in Rotterdam, which was previously from the promo-only 12″ EP Duran Goes Dutch ‘Strange Behaviour’ Tour.

Duran Duran – A View To A Kill (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on 24th November 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

Label

Logo2After several requests and all the buzz surrounding the newly unearthed 12″ remix of “A View To A Kill”. I decided to post the only official U.S. 12″ of the Duran Duran classic. Sure it’s just the original single version, but for those of us who are audiophile’s hearing the track in it’s original uncompressed vinyl glory is a real treat especially in 24 bit.

In November 2014 – The James Bond site MI6 revealed a previously unreleased 7:30 extended remixed 12″ version of the song and it has since been mentioned on Duran Duran’s website which suggests that it might be the real deal. MI6 claim that Steve Thompson created the 12″ mix in Paris with the band, although John Taylor says “I don’t remember hearing it at the time”. The remix can be heard of MI6-HQ’s page on Soundcloud. November 22, 2014, Steve Thompson confirmed to Super Deluxe Editions that he, Mike Barbiero and the band was there except John Taylor had made the 12″ version of the song in a Paris studio.

“A View to a Kill” is the thirteenth single by Duran Duran, released in 6 May 1985 and created for the James Bond movie A View to a Kill. It was a stand-alone single, and remains the only James Bond theme song to have reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100; it also made it to number 2 for three weeks on the UK Singles Chart.

In 1986, John Barry and Duran Duran were nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Original Song for A View to a Kill. The song was the last track recorded by the original five members of Duran Duran until their 2001 reunion. It was played at their 1985 performance at Live Aid in Philadelphia, their final performance prior to their first split, while still at number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
