Go-Go's ‎– Beauty And The Beat

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
The first US vinyl pressings (and maybe others) of the Beauty and the Beat album contain a 2:36 mix of "We Got The Beat". This version of the song has all of the lead vocals double-tracked, the chorus vocals are in stereo, and there's no piano. It was also released as a B-side on the Our Lips Are Sealed 12".

Although the sleeve and labels were not changed, most pressings of the US LP contain the 2:32 hit single version of "We Got The Beat", which includes the piano, has the bass guitar lower in the mix, has mono chorus vocals, and has mostly solo lead vocals. This version also removes a 2-bar instrumental passage right before the 2nd verse (at about 0:44). All CDs have this version as well.

I've been hunting for a clean older copy of this for a long time. I finally found this older pressing, VG+, for $9. Not bad.

I love the era of the Go-Go's; they are new wave pop but have a rocking edge to them, and sweet vocal harmonies.

Recording is excellent and mastering is dynamic.

Outstanding perfect sounding reissue. No "CB" Chris Bellman on wax but probably same remaster as the 2020 US version released simultaneously?
