02 Waiting For The Sirens’ Call (Planet Funk Dub) | 08:12

Released in 2005, “Waiting For The Sirens’ Call” was New Order’s last single with erstwhile bassist Peter Hook. The CD release includes only two mixes; however, a treble set of 7″ singles features commendable remixes of classic tunes. Those versions (and more) were also made available on various promotional CDs.

New Order have occasionally based live arrangements of some songs on remixes; however, it came as quite a surprise to hear the band play the obscure but excellent Planet Funk remix of “WFTSC” on their current tour.

03 If You Love Somebody Set Them Free (Brothers In Rhythm Mix)
04 Demolition Man (Soulpower Edit)

“This Cowboy Song” was penned by Sting for inclusion on his 1994 best of collection, “Fields Of Gold.” The original version is hardly an essential addition to Mr. Sumner’s discography; however, the reggae remix (featuring Pato Banton) on the single release is downright embarrassing. But let’s be honest—the single’s selling point is an epic rework of “If You Love Somebody Set Them Free” by Steve Anderson & Dave Seaman.

Lulu (Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie) has been entertaining audiences for over 50 years. Long after her initial chart success in the 1960s, Lulu enjoyed a comeback in the 1990s with the album “Independence” and related singles. Released in 1994, “Goodbye Baby And Amen” is also available on the collection “Absolutely.”

VC Recordings Summer Sampler

01 Tin Tin Out – Sometimes (Matt Darey Remix)
02 Amira – My Desire (Club Asylum Classic Vocal Mix)
03 The Grant Nelson Project – Step 2 Me (Groove Vocal Mix)
04 Beat Foundation – Shelter (K-Klass Klub Mix)
05 Santos & Sabino – Lararari [Canzone Felice] (Santos Disco)
06 Camisra – Let Me Show You (Tall Paul Remix)

This promotional sampler issued by Virgin Records dance imprint VC Recordings is remarkable for its inclusion of a rare K-Klass remix of “Shelter” by Beat Foundation (blog followers may be familiar with my fondness for Beat Foundation and the Skinnymalinky label). When Beat Foundation signed to VC Recordings in 1998, the label commissioned new mixes of “Shelter”, originally issued by Skinnymalinky two years earlier. The remixes by K-Klass and Big C were limited to a promo 12″, and unfortunately, Beat Foundation disbanded soon afterward.
