There's only four versions.

7" / 'Burning Bridges' LP version (thunderclap, church bells) (on CD - 2012 'Burning Bridges')
7" Jellybean mix (drums) (on CD - 1991 'Best Of', 1994 'Promises Promises - Very Best Of', 2018 'Naked Eyes')
12" Tony Mansfield mix (on CD - 1992 'Hardest Hits Volume 2' Canadian various artists compilation) NOTE: this mix was also released on a 1991 CD single in Canada but is faded out early.
12" American Remix (by Jellybean) (on CD - 2012 'Burning Bridges', 2018 'Naked Eyes') NOTE: this mix is on the 2002 'Everything And More' CD but it is mistakenly listed as the Mansfield mix.

I just got done listening to the version on Hardest Hits and it is completely different from the Tony Mansfield 12". It is almost like a dub version for the first 2 minutes. There isn't any singing until 2:38 in the Hardest hits version whereas the Mansfield version starts singing at 54 seconds. There is always a vocoder intro and way more drums and church bells in the Mansfield version.

Feel free to listen to the Hardest Hits version.. https://mega.nz/#!X7AEyABZ!omboatCu2ldJTYtYf3w0e3GEfBY2p3YoCqfviueuKHQ

Thanks Freshy. I've been looking around for the Hardest Hits set but I just keep finding dead links.

Can't believe I found all five volumes of that Hardest Hits series on torrent - in 320kbps no less!



Can you tell me where you found the torrent? I searched but no luck.

Freshy, you knew on the 'Everything And More' CD, the Mansfield mix of "Always" is listed wrong and is actually the Jellybean mix, right?
The Jellybean mix vocal starts off at 54 seconds.

So the Mansfield 12" mix has never been on CD?

Yes, it has. The Mansfield mix is on the 'Hardest Hits' compilation CD.
Track two on the 'Everything And More' CD is the Jellybean mix, even though it is credited as the Mansfield mix in the booklet.

Hello,

I helped compile the Hardest Hits compilation CD's and the mix of "Always... " was drawn from this 12":

https://www.discogs.com/Naked-Eyes-Alwa ... ase/512518

It was the version most familiar to us here in the Toronto area as that version was aired on CFNY back in the 80's.

That's the original Mansfield mix, thank you for confirming that Swerve!

Thanks. Was it a vinyl rip?

That's from a master. EMI back then were an excellent label to deal with.

Long thread.. i missed that the Mansfield mix on Everything and More was actually Jellybean.. Crazy... Love the wide extent of knowledge that people have in this group. Too bad the manufacturers didn't employ some of you as fact checkers...

Swerve, you being Canadian, perhaps you could answer this question please.
This mix of "Promises Promises" on YouTube, if the image of the record it was taken from is correct, then this is from the Canadian 12".

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEUkd5_YADY

Do you have this record and if so would you please confirm this mix is on this 12"?
https://www.discogs.com/Naked-Eyes-Promises-Promises-12-Mix/release/230483

I ask because this mix is different to the Tony Mansfield original UK 12" mix...
https://www.discogs.com/Naked-Eyes-Promises-Promises/release/406745

...and the USA promo 12" features an edit of the Tony Mansfield mix (40 seconds are cut from the intro) which happens to have nearly the same running time as the Canadian 12"...
