I know of five mixes of this very kool track.
The original, from _Queer_:
"Question Of Time"
Three mixes on "Time" single:
"Time" 7:22
"Time Less" 3:59
"Dark Time" 6:32
And from the "Mama Told Me Not to Come" single we have:
"Summer Time" ... See full review

This seems to be the only appearance of "Summer Time", an excellent 4th addition to the three mixes of "Time" [from Dark Side of the Moon, yes] on the _Time_ single.

"our house", Madness' 9th biggest UK hit, didn't make the cut.

is it Radioactive's typo, or did Mick originally title the album Punk?

would some Squeeze-head please explain the logic behind compiling this set of songs? Why the inclusion of Take Me I'm Yours, If I Didn't Love You and Tempted [alternate version]?

Wow, they up'd the original running time of ~20 minutes per side to 26+ minutes per side! The bass *has* to suffer, right?

I have read that this is an unauthorized release, and that these are merely edits, not actual remixes.

It has been alleged that Rachel Humphries, Lou Reed's mid-70s TS lover and the inspiration for his albums of that peak period [Sally Can't Dance, etc.], is the cover model for Bionic Boogie's 1977 debut.

Oddly, this release doesn't show up in the Style Council's compilation section for me. I only found it by searching directly. [Discogs site has awesome search, do we all agree?]

At 21 tracks, this almost certainly the longest single disk Style Council compilation.

Conspicuously missing "a solid bond in your heart". It's video is obscure— not on Youtube; indeed I only found it on this Japanese site: https://www.nicovideo.jp/watch/sm11328089. It's a wonderful video– Paul Weller dances on the dance floor with... See full review

Who are the other three members of "Leeds' four famous drum machine bands"? I assume Sisters of Mercy...

Omits "This Today", one of their 3 best songs imso.
posted a comment on Red Lorry Yellow Lorry - This Today. about 1 year ago
Interestingly, the song This Today, one of their 3 best imso*, is not included on this 4 song EP.
*The other two being Talk About The Weather and their only 'hit', Hollow Eyes.

How odd that for songs from Long Distance Voyager they include "Veteran Cosmic Rocker" over "Gemini Dream" (probably the Moody's fourth biggest song of the 80s) or even "talking out of turn" or "22,000 Days".

Can anyone comment on the sound? It's odd they would give this recording the collector's reissue treatment without remastering, but AFAIK no early SSJ was remastered until 2017's The Fever: The Remastered Epic Recordings ‎2CD.

No need to make a 3LP set... It just should be 33 rpm, or at least sides 1 and 3 should be.

The Canadian issue has stereo album versions as one would expect from major label A&M. The UK issues, however, all appear to be mono, and Kinda Kute is a remix!

I just figured out that my cousin Edna Lewis co-wrote this. The a-side is from Nature's Walden album. Does anyone know anything about the b-side, apparently a cover by "The Partners"?
posted a comment on Robert Palmer - You Are In My System. over 3 years ago
Note: the album version is 4:27, so the b-side seems to be an uncredited edit.
