I thought the West End girls mix was on CD somewhere? Can anyone confirm that? In the article it says on CD in the UK fir the first time...the world is a big place.

Not officially that I know of, but you're right, the world's a big place. As you likely know, the Disco version takes its intro from West-End Dub before seamlessly mixing into the mastermix.

This incredible track list includes West End girls (Shep Pettibone Mix) on CD for the first time ever (The DISCO version was a unique edit)

The Pettibone Mastermix was released on CD since 1986! It was included on an official various artists CD compilation from Netehrlands called "Now Dance", but mislabeled as "Extended Mix".
The strange thing here, is that the original "Mastermix" (on that CD and also on the 12" releases) is 8:09 in lenght. But The track lenght on this new Pettibone compilation is reported as 8:27 (on CD) and 8:35 (on vinyl). Maybe a mistake on the lenghts information, or maybe we´ll get a variant (or two? I don´t think so...) of the original Mastermix!

Shep Pettibone has shapped the sound of our lives, I dont think people that usually listens to 80s records realize how many hits he is behind

Id be cool if Shep was the DJ for the Upcoming US tour. Nothing against Okenfold, but Shep was a huge part of BOTH PSB and NO’s remix catalog.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

I would have Shep open with a set and then, as his last track, play either his backing track of West End girls or True Faith depending on who was the first act that might.

That is a flyer for a party in his honour, nowhere does it say that he will play a set nor that he will be present. The photo on it is also at least 15 years old.

He only spins very occasionally as stated in this interview: https://www.billboard.com/articles/colu ... -interview
