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

80's and 90's 12 Inch Mixes

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – Shame (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 4th May 2017

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1987

“Shame” is a song by British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark released as the third single taken from their 1986 album, The Pacific Age, although it is a re-recording made after the album’s release, presumably in early 1987, and was produced by Rhett Davies (as opposed to the original album version which was produced by Stephen Hague).

“Shame” was scheduled for release as a single whilst OMD were still on tour. The band had suggested “Stay” as a possible single from the album, but label Virgin thought “Shame” had more potential. The band relented, although feeling the album version was too slow, and recruited Rhett Davies to give the song more of a polish.

The B side Goddess of Love was lifted straight from the album The Pacific Age and was the song which was originally intended to be used for the Pretty in Pink movie soundtrack before the group came up with “If You Leave”, which was featured in the movie.

The single reached no. 52 on the UK Singles Chart. It has never been included on any of OMD’s singles compilation albums, making it unique to this release. The 7″ re-recorded version has never had a digital release.

A promotional video was made for the single and is included on the DVD of the CD/DVD release Messages: Greatest Hits.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – (Forever) Live And Die (John “Tokes” Potoker – Extended Mix) (UK 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 25th November 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

This is the first U.K. 12″ pressing for the Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) single “(Forever) Live and Die”. Remixed by American remixer John “Tokes” Potoker. The story behind this remix is that the band was not happy with it so it was withdrawn. Virgin Records had already printed about 5,000 copies crediting John “Tokes” Potoker as the remixer. Some of these copies did make it into record shops.

The band later went with the Tom Lord-Alge remix and ir was later released. I posted that mix back in April 2014.

The single was a Top 10 hit in Canada and many European territories, and a Top 20 hit in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. It was the last of the group’s singles to reach the UK Top 20 before Humphreys left in 1989, and Andy McCluskey continued OMD on his own.

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark – (Forever) Live And Die (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 29th April 2014

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“(Forever) Live and Die” is a song by British synthpop band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), released as the first single taken from their 1986 album, The Pacific Age. It is sung by Paul Humphreys, who ordinarily functions as keyboard player and backing vocalist. The single narrowly missed the Top 10 of the UK Singles Chart, peaking at #11, but was a significant radio hit. It was a Top 10 hit in Canada and many European territories, and a Top 20 hit in the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Ireland. It was the last of the group’s singles to reach the UK Top 20 before Humphreys left in 1989, and Andy McCluskey continued OMD on his own.

Producer Stephen Hague had made his production debut the previous year on OMD’s Crush. He is also known for his work with the Pet Shop Boys, often using a chorus effect on Neil Tennant’s voice, as he did with Humphreys on this song.

The b-side “This Town” is a non-lp track.
