Hi everyone! Does anybody have this song in 320 mp3 or better quality?

Thanks!

First time uploaded so hope this works.

I'm pretty sure this is everything The Promise did. Discogs lists another track in a compilation album, but if I remember right that is by a band with the same name.

A - Away, Away (Adventure Mix)
B - The Retreat

A - Glasshouse
B - Time To Speak

Unfortunately the rip on the second single isn't so clean (Don't know if anyone has a clearer rip to share?). Time To Speak is actually very good.

Thanks for this! It looks like Away Away isn't complete... the original version ticks 7 minutes long!

Hmm, it seems there were three versions (all can be heard on Youtube) but discogs doesn't give track length of each.

I'd think the 7" clocks in at 4:11

The Adventure Mix (according to Youtube anyway) is that 5:20-ish one.

You may be referring to the 'special mix' or 'special dance mix' (6:56 on Youtube, and has a shimmering keyboard opening which is distinctive)

I don't have this version unfortunately. :(

I think both long versions are the same... the only difference between them is that the shorter one avoids the intro, and starts a minute later with a fade-in. By the way, the 7 minute version on YouTube is only 6:12 minutes, as the last minute of the video is practically empty :wink:

Hi guys,

I couldn't help notice this discussion regarding The Promise so hopefully I can shed some light as to the Mixes / Versions of "Away, Away". Years ago I transferred the 12" record onto DAT in hopes to one day clean it up but I could never get the intro to sound right so never included it on any of my series! Anyway, I had written down the title as being The Promise "Away, Away" (Adventure Mix) which is what the record actually states. A few years later while record shopping, I came across the same 12" Record but the title said "Away, Away" (Dance Mix) so I asked the owner of the shop if he could play the record and I clearly remember thinking the mix was identical to the (Adventure Mix) so I left the record. With that said and if memory serves me well, I strongly believe both the (Dance Mix) and the (Adventure Mix) are the same! If i'm wrong then i'm getting too old and I apologize!

Here is the full version of The Promise "Away, Away" (Adventure Mix) 614 (84) which I started working on but never completed! Enjoy!

Ps: I may one day revisit the track and try to restore!
