My cringe-worthy review from January 1995:

Summary: Essential remixes of 2 tracks from 76 14

I'll make this brief. The Grid mix is recorded too soft and is impossible to mix, but it sure sounds nice. Wacked out percussion all around, with the original bits reduced to Bryan Ferry style atmospherics. Oops, what was the original? Why, tracks 7 and 8 on 76 14 of course... you know, the track that they say was merely inspired by Tangerine Dream's 1983 classic "Love on a Real Train (Risky Business)".. shyah right. Anyway, Michael Brook (!) slows the track down and gives it some subtle treatments and adds a bit of acoustic guitar, always with a rounded, soulful feel. The result is kinda like Pink Floyd on a good day, without the grey hair.

7'39 was originally remixed by the Orb but the results were unsatisfactory to the communicators, so they remixed the Orb's remix, if I understand the situation. What's left is a drone and some noise at the end. The original track is completely gone. It's kinda hard to describe. Flangey beats that start and stop, a quiet drone, weird noises.. a kind of IDM soup, trancey flavored. I like it.

Global Communication give me hope for the future of electronic music.

I know the label says 33&1/3rd rpm but I think track B2 is meant to be at 45rpm. B1 seems to work better at 33+1/3rd rpm but it sort of works at 45 rpm. Mind you B2 also sounds quite good at 33&1/3rd only the original guitar picking drags a bit.

Anyway, I love all three mixes as well as the mixes on the first EP. Complements my original 1978 Music for 18 Musicians vinyl very well :-). Now if only I can get the tangerine dream track on vinyl.

The Link remix of 7:39 is an amazing track, very reminiscent of Carl Craig's BFC guise. Not keen on the other two mixes on the flip but the Link mix is a classic.
