    This one-sided 12” remix of Paul McCartney’s ‘Temporary Secretary’ by Radio Slave was issued, in December 2003, to promote the compilation album Various - New Religion Presents A Secret History (Classic 80's Electronic Dance), which explores the roots of dance music.
    To illustrate Paul McCartney's influence on dance music the original version of ‘Temporary Secretary’ from the 1980 ‘McCartney II’ album was included on that compilation album.

    Only 500 copies of this 12” remix were made and most of them were distributed mainly to key radio stations in Europe.
    Each copy was hand numbered with a felt tip pen, on the silver back side label, between the text lines : “LIMITED EDITION” and “OUT OF 500 COPIES”.
    Copies sent to press/radio came with an A4 sized press release sheet.

    The 12” Radio Slave remix of ‘Temporary Secretary’ was issued again in 2004 on the UNCUT magazine CD Paul McCartney - Something For The Weekend... Paul McCartney's Glastonbury Groove, however as a shorter version (6:18).

    Isn’t it beautiful when an experienced performer like this can still experiment and diversify. Not only does it tap into an inner creativity, widening their appeal, it’s proven that trying different musical approaches and styles can add to the longevity of an artist career, something Sir Paul needs no lessons in. What an amazing tune this is, an unexpected gem of its time with this later 12inch Radio Salve remix making it even more remarkable. This 500 limited edit is also a great Collectors piece. Spend those pellets!!

    Beware that there are lots of counterfeits of this record on the market.
    Only 500 copies were distributed to radio stations in Europe, so what are the chances that you’ll find a genuine issue.
    The easiest way to determine if your record is a genuine pressing is to look for the written number on the silver label on the backside. The original record was issued in a limited run of 500 copies, each individually numbered with a felt tip pen between the lines: “LIMITED EDITION” and “OUT OF 500 COPIES”. The counterfeit pressings are lacking those numbers.
    Having said that, it is of course quite easy to take your own felt tip pen and write a random number between 001 and 500 in that area.
    Luckily there are a few another ways to determine of your record is the real thing.
    1. The matrix number in the run-out area should read : NILZ – THE EXCHANGE. TEMPSEC 01 A-1-1 PS
    2. The ‘All Rights’ rim text contains 2 times: ‘©2003’, one at the bottom and one at 10 o’clock position. On the original pressing the ‘©’ is in grayish color while the rest of the text is white, on the counterfeit there is no difference in color.
    3. Then there’s the position of the 10 o’clock ©, on the original pressing it’s next to the second highest line of the Parlophone logo, while on the counterfeit pressing it is above the highest line of the Parlophone logo.
    4. The original record is heavy: 180 gram, the counterfeits which I came across are less than that (146 gram).
    5. On the counterfeit pressings the A-side label is not printed perfectly, it has some kind of shadow on all text and lines (except for the Parlophone logo).
    And last, but not least, the sound quality of the counterfeit pressing is somewhat lifeless.

    Ok, now you just found out that your record is a fake, is it worthless? Well not entirely, as long as there is a market for it, it’s always worth something, though probably not as much as you paid for it.
    And as long as you can’t find or afford the real thing it’s always nice to have at least a good counterfeit one.

    This is a great tune. Radio Slave have lengthened and toughened up the original. It must be said that the original was amazing for its time anyway. My only gripe on this release is that somehow mobile phone type "beeping interference" occurs during the intro and again towards the end. How did this get by quality control?
