Promo CD's

Postby Freshy » Thu Mar 08, 2018 6:10 pm

I went through my Maxi-CD collection and have the following promo CD's. Let me know if any of these are of interest and i'll post. I have them ripped at 320 but will go flac if someone really wants it. I never really gave it much thought that the promo's had different single versions than the extended commercially sold CD's.

Thanks for offering up these promos Freshy!

I have a bunch of the mixes among these, but admit I had to Youtube a few of the songs to remember them or hear them for the first time!

I'd love to get my ears on (in FLAC format if you have the time):

Erasure "In My Arms"
Marc Almond "The Desperate Hours" - Just Youtube'd the Justin Strauss remix and WOW that's awesome! Strauss and Pettibone are almost always golden IMO
Giant Steps "(The World Don't Need) Another Lover" - Completely forgot about this song. I've been listening to Scritti Politti a lot lately and it kinda reminds me of them
Howard Jones "Everlasting Love" - the 808 Mix is excellent
Information Society "Going, Going, Gone" - I have the commercial CD-Single but it doesn't have the Track 1 Edit
Cause & Effect "What Do You See" - Great song! I have tracks 2&3 but I'm not sure about Track 1

I think the Boxcar promo is the same as the Canadian commercial CD-single release which I have (as well as the Australian CD which adds on the Unleaded Dub), but for anyone who may not be familiar, ANYTHING by Boxcar is pretty amazing.

I have the commercial CD-single of Information Society's "How Long", but for anyone not familiar, the two Justin Strauss mixes on this one are - of course - fantastic (gotta love the nod to Kraftwerk's "Pocket Calculator").

Thanks again for digging through your stuff and offering some rarities Freshy!

Cool that you are willing to post them.

I think the cause and effect one has a mix i dont have.

=======================================================

i'll put this request here, in case any one else see's it..

does anyone have this promo CD from OMD:
=======================================
https://www.discogs.com/Orchestral-Mano ... ase/862982

Tracklist
1 Dreaming (Club Mix Edit) 4:58
2 Dreaming (7" Version) 4:15
3 Dreaming (Extended 12" Club Mix) 8:22

I think the extended 12 inch club mix is exclusive to this, and possibly the club mix edit.

I found a FLAC of this promo a few years ago. When I add FLACs to my iTunes I convert them to AIFF (Macs can't play FLACs and I figure if I ever want to burn stuff to CD it's easiest just to have files already in AIFF format anyway), so rather than "re-compress" them, I've uploaded my AIFF files. If you're not on a Mac, just convert them to WAVs and you're good to go. I've tested the files and they are a legit CD rip.
