Fade to Grey!! One of my favorites from this era. Ahead of it's time.

'We Move' and 'Fade to Grey' are classic releases. But it is the killer track 'Frequency 7 (Dance Mix)' that proves to be
the standout track on this ÚS 12" released in 1980. Very similar to later electro, early Detroit. Is Li'l Louis 'Frequency' of 1987 a tribute?

On the B-side that little Remix-EP was released the one and only authentical "extended" version of "Fade To Grey" (6:44).

Strangewise was on the actual 12'' a merely self-repeating Single-Edit (one cut only!). Impudently advertised as "Special Maxi Version" it may remains as the most disappointing Maxi-Version ever.
I don't know, what was the crucial factor that decided the company. Probably nobody suspected "Fade To Grey" will stay as one of the most remarkable singles of Pop-Music. Listening the record made probably every customer angry (or just speechless?). It might be a kind of excuse to release that Remix-EP for small money with three dance mixes and another two songs from the Longplay.

The "Dance Mix" of "Fade To Grey" is an absolute masterpiece. The same Vocals and Synths like on the well known original, but a much more "modern" druming and a fully inspired new arrangement makes this version to an unbelievable track. Rocks Hard. And also to mentioned is the "Dance Mix" of "Frequency 7", which can be mixed up perfectly with "Positron Island" by Drexciya...Fits like it was made by the same Aliens from Planet X.
