Mixes sound reasonably good to me. The Gray Mix is probably my favorite based on the short snippets.

So colour me confused...these aren't recordings from the Bobby O tracks are they? These sound closer to the Hague versions.

What gives?

I quite like the sound of them.

I don't like this type of 'remix' - some random git totally unrelated to the song or the group contained either banging some saucepans with gusto or playing a Rolf Harris Stylophone in the background does not a remix make. Won't be wasting money on it.

The vocals are form the Bobby "O" ZYX production for sure...
This is not my signature.

Really!?

Wow, I need to relisten to my Bobby O stuff then. I always felt the vocal was much less polished on those.

Terrible mixes and cover art. A bit disrespectful really.

The Bobby O vocal stem must be the only one available? Only serves to remind how elevated the Stephen Hague was.

Nothing is going to be better than the version the did with the BBC Orchestra and/or the 10" version (I don't know if this one is official).

The 10" version that they issued as a limited edition 10" record with fold out picture sleeve that they even gave a catalogue number, 10R6115?

That one?

Don`t think nickname even owns a Pet shop boys record. By the sound of some of his posts, it wouldn’t surprise me.

Surprised they are allowed to use PSB imagery unless they consented.
