Seems it’s time for another Bobby O cash-in again. Just wish more of the original material got released instead, like that unfinished album or at least the 25-minute jam of the song Pet Shop Boys?

So Bobby O finally found the accapellas so we can get a proper remix not just one with dubbed over drums.
As a fan of Ben Liebrand I'm surprised he remixed the 'fake' version, that said the mixes are not bad. I won't be buying it though.

The cynic in me thinks the record label and Bobby O have come to an arrangement - to take advantage of increased visibility of the song via the Guardian deciding it's the UK's best ever chart-topper (and to a lesser extent the lockdown version). The deejay.de website makes specific reference to the Guardian coverage, after all:

Recently voted” as “The best British number one from British soil” by the readers of UK newspaper “The Guardian, “West End Girls” by British duo Pet Shop Boys is an all-time synth-pop classic that comes in a 2×12” package with two mixes from legendary Dutch producer remixer Ben Liebrand, a 2020 version from UK house hero Michael Gray, and a new mix by Italian wizard Moplen.

Honestly to me these previews sound fantastic.
It does irk me a little to think it's officially licensed by totally unapproved by PSB themselves.

They should commission a collection of remixes of songs from the back catalogue for Disco 5.

What a cool record label name by the way, "High Fashion Music".
