A new thematic compilation here :D This time it's of instrumental B-sides released by mainly major acts on their 1983 singles. It's was interesting to put that together - though my running order may be only to my taste, but man, did I have some fun with it (discovering some true gems along the way - "The Marauders", just wow)! Won't take much of your time, here's the music:

Tracks: Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark - 66 & Fading (Navigation edit) / Yello - Rubber West / Kajagoogoo - Introduction / Blancmange - On Our Way to / A Flock of Seagulls - Rosenmontag (7") / Classix Nouveaux - Switch (7") / Leisure Process - The Emigre (7") / Duran Duran - Faith in this Colour (regular 7") / The Human League - Total Panic / Ultravox - Overlook / Assembly - Stop-Start (7") / Care - On the White Cloud / Tears for Fears - The Marauders / Depeche Mode - The Great Outdoors! / China Crisis - Dockland
