Madonna ‎– Borderline

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
Many releases have 1983 copyright dates, and the artwork may have been prepared for release in late 1983, but sources state the single did not come out until February 1984 (US) and May 1984 (UK). It is unlikely that releases in other countries would have preceded these editions.

Copies exist, one of which I have in my collection, that have a blue promo stamp (Promocao Invendavel - excuse spelling because it's not easy to read) on the label.

" It is unlikely that releases in other countries would have preceded these editions."
Glad to see it's not just my memory that's 'going' !
Is it not possible that earlier dates on this [& other releases] are correct ?
I remember an unknown act called Madonna & in the UK it was like shops suddenly had stock of her records months after they first appeared, and sort did 'ok' chartwise.
There's video's of various people saying that her Like A Virgin album was 'finished' but held back for release as they were 'gonna try again with the 1st album'...?

Madonna - not a great fan! Respect her & her achievements! I'm not going into the in's & out's of why so i'll keep this short & sweet...... "Boarderline" being one of a very few guilty pleasures of music in my life! There, that's it, i've let it out now & i feel better for it!

Am I right in thinking that the U.S. Remix is the New Mix?

There's a mega rare limited edition of the original release; it's a double pack 7" with 'Holiday' included as a bonus single. It's often said that it was shrink-wrapped but in fact, it was a slightly larger cover that enabled two singles to be inserted into the cover. It came with a sticker on the sleeve. I saw it come up on ebay a few months ago.

This record was released twice in the UK. The first edition sleeve differs from the second edition in only one identifiable way - the catalogue number (within the red female symbol) at the top right corner of the reverse of the sleeve has a white background on the re-issue on the first issue it is yellow. The labels for both issues are identical.

In actual fact, the instrumental mix was released on the 'b' side of the Australian 12", as well as being re-titled 'dub remix' on the UK/German 12" release. There are 2 German 12" releases, one with the UK styled 'map' sleeve and one with the US styled 'bangles' sleeve. Only the 'map' sleeve has the dub mix (and is much easier to find!) on sites such as ebay and on here! The instrumental/dub-remix has been used several times in order to produce bootleg remixes, such as the 'Bord' bootleg which nicely extends the breaks.
