Full 8 minutes Ben Liebrand remix on Spotify. Beautiful and moody, love it! Best psb remix in a while.

Oh, it's not exclusive to vinyl.
The full Ben Liebrand 9 Course Suite remix is on Spotify now.
It's coming up as a popular and recommended release for PSB.

You fans may not care about this remix, but the general population does. West End girls is a great song, and regardless of whether PSB were directly involved with this release it's still under their brand,
and it contains elements of the original song we haven't heard at this level of detail until now.

I love hearing these types of remixes that break down the original STEMS.

Terrible remix. Highlights how bad the vocals were in the Bobby O version of West End girls. Came up in my Release Radar on Spotify and I've decided instead to spend some time listening to official versions of West End girls instead! 👌

The vocal is a bit shouty and hard to listen to.
Woof.

That was considered “street” in 1983 😂

I think it´s GREAT mix... but no so many "original elements" in full that we haven´t heard..as they're using the Bobby O elements, wich was much more basic in production than the later "Please" re-production. The sax (as an example) and other added sounds are "new", but imitating some of the Please arrangents..what is nice, but not from that original stems...

Of course they are using the Bobby O production, they haven’t got the right to the vastly superior Stephen Hague production.
Bobby O has recycled this for the last 35 ish years. It’s getting so tiresome !

Agreed. I think it's the first great mixes of the Bobby O production since... the originals...

Don’t have a clue either. The label is a Dutch record label but nowhere on any of the Dutch online or physical record stores can you find it. Neither does amazon have it. Why bother with a video and all and then not make it widely available.
