This is NOT one of my re-creations. This is my own vinyl transfer of the Robert Margouleff remix of Depeche Mode's "A Question Of Lust" - the same guy who did the great remixes of "But Not Tonight" for the US market. This is probably my favorite version of this song - I love how the music is more subdued during the verses, highlighting Martin's vocal. And I like the focus on the little bleepy arpegio bit at the opening.

I bought a mint copy of the 1986 USA Promo 12" about 15yrs ago and digitized it. While backing up my Depeche Mode collection this week I decided my original transfer could use a little EQ tweaking and figured since I've been sharing some rare edits, why not share this as well. I probably posted this in MP3 format here long ago, but I think the EQ adjustment sounds much better and am sharing it now in FLAC:

Depeche Mode "A Question Of Lust (USA Remix Edit)" 3:54

The 12" sleeve states timing as "3:45" but when I recorded it, I matched the vinyl to the exact tempo of the album version on my "Black Celebration" CD and it is in fact 3:54 ... ase/548614

This same mix was also on the USA Promo 7" ... ase/846907

And on the Back-To-Back Hits USA 7" with "People Are People" (which is where I first heard this remix) ... ase/643468
