I second YKWYWW Rough Mix.

Was It Worth It? Dub

Rent Dub

West End Girls Grum and Sasha mixes

I Want To Wake Up '93
I think E-mail radio mix, as well as (possibly) the extended mix of Home and Dry weren't put on Release FL because they were done by Chris Zippel so it broke their rule about until putting their own mixes on.

In terms of remixes, my must haves include:

- In The Night (Arthur Baker Mix)
- It's A Sin (Miami Mix)
- Petshoppibone
- How Can You Expect To Be Taken Seriously? (Brothers In Rhythm 12")
- Minimal (M Factor Mix)
- Love Is A Bourgeois Construct (Penelopes Remix)

.... although they wouldn't meet the requirements of the Further Listening series.

Doubt it — Zippel was the producer, not remixer. According to that logic, Go West (Mark Stent) and I wouldn't normally do this kind of thing (Beatmasters) should not have been included either.

I think the point of omitting so many gems that could have been included was to leave some value for the "box that contains everything" which is yet to see the light of day at some point.

The mixes and remixes from the 80s need to be collected together. They should include them in that Further Listening box set, they're going to release.

They should release a "Relentless and Rarities" set including CD1 remastered Relentless and then two CDs of rare demo tracks and remixes unavailable elsewhere.

I do note that regarding Elysium's Further Listening set, there is at least one master quality recording omitted... the Olympic mix of West End Girls. As I understand it, this is (at least a partial) re-recording, involving Pet Shop Boys, as opposed to being "remixed" independently of their efforts.

I love the KLF remixes - Their It Must Be Obvious remix is completely odd, and I'm surprised there's not too much comment about it - I can't believe there isn't a serious love/hate divide on it between fans of the type found for TSOTAS!

I love it. But I'm a KLF nut!

It's basically one of their own ambient tracks that they've shoehorned a bit of Obvious into. It sits well with their "Space" "Chill Out" LPs, along with their Blue Danube mix of 3am, America No More and the Virtual Reality mix of What Time Is Love.

Except Space isn't the KLF but only Jimmy Cauty and the Blue Danube Mix of 3am was by The Orb (I'm a KLF nut too :wink: )

I'm just surprised they managed to get the KLF to remix them as iirc they turned down loads of offers for remixes and have only remixed a Depeche Mode song and a Moody Boys track (who they had previously worked with on a WTIL remix)
