REQUEST: ABC "The Greatest Love Of All (May Day Mix)"

Postby Fred Taghon » Sun Dec 03, 2017 6:53 pm

I just recently discovered the May Day (aka Mayday) Mix of ABC's 1989 track "The Greatest Love Of All" and I just love it. It's always been one of my favorite tracks from the "Up" album but somehow I missed that there was an extended remix of it included on the "The Real Thing" single. I've obtained the edited version of it found on the "The Real Thing" CD-Single, but the only time the full version has ever appeared on CD was on the 2005 re-issue of "Up":

Curious if anyone happens to have this gorgeous mix at their disposal...in lossless??

If a raw mp3 rip of the 12'' is of interest, go here:

That is a great site - thanks for reminding me. I had that 2005 "Up" cd remaster and sold it on Amazon for over $50 a while back - couldn't resist when I saw it was really rare. Wonder why - the other remasters from that time are all easily available still, but for some reason the "Up" cd became rare and valuable. Short pressing run on that one?

Thanks for the suggestion. I actually did find an MP3 of the mix but was hoping to get a lossless copy. I discovered that this track IS actually available on at least 2 legit download sites (7digital and Junodownload) in FLAC or even WAV format, but of course, NOT available for purchase by folks in the USA. So once again, I'm willing to pay for a track, but get blocked by red tape.
