SHARE: Erasure L'Amour USA 7" Edit

Postby Fred Taghon » Fri Dec 08, 2017 3:17 pm

I may have shared this edit a few years back, but I decided to re-create my re-creation (hehe) using the Funky Sisters Remix from the "Wonderland" 2011 Remaster instead of the Singles Box version. Both sound excellent, but I like the 2011 Remaster slightly more. I also discovered my original re-creation faded out about 4 seconds too early according to two fairly recent videos I found on YouTube of the actual USA 7" vinyl, so this new re-creation corrects that.

The versions of The Funky Sisters Remix on both the Singles box set and the Wonderland remaster are too slow which has always nagged at me - at least compared to the original USA 12" and USA "Wonderland" CD. So I increased the pitch of the full remix 16cents to match the USA 12" & CD tempo, then proceeded to do the 7" Edit. The actual 7" Edit has the left and right channels swapped from the full-length mix (which seems to have been fairly common in the 80's for 7" single releases for some reason) so I made one version with the channels swapped and one version where the channels are the same as the full-length mix.

I realized AFTER uploading and posting these tracks that there is a segment in both of the Edited versions (2:33-2:42) where I had decreased the volume and forgot to "Undo" the change. I have fixed this error and am reposting the three files in a new ZIP here:

I will go back end edit the original posting to delete the original download link to avoid any further confusion. Sorry about that!!
