INFO > With remixes galore, live recordings, and a B-side that was allegedly rejected for use in “Star Trek: First Contact”, this 1997 EP from Erasure provided great value for money.

LIVE > Later today, I’ll be traveling to Atlantic City, New Jersey to see Erasure perform to a sold-out crowd at The Borgata Hotel Casino. The dynamic duo are touring in support of their 16th studio album, “The Violet Flame.” The opening act is Brian Transeau’s new project, All Hail The Silence, featuring vocalist Christian Burns (BT also remixed Erasure’s new single, “Elevation”).

04 Listen To The Music (Overworld 7″ Edit)
05 Listen To The Music (Overworld Extended Mix)
06 Listen To The Music (Original Version)

INFO > Given the success of 1993’s “Long Train Runnin'” rework, Warner Bros. hoped lightning might strike twice, so The Doobie Brothers’ 1972 hit “Listen To The Music” was chosen for a 1994 remix package. Steve Rodway and The Development Corporation both deliver pumping, high energy mixes; however, the highlight here is an epic collaboration between Ramp and Jon Of The Pleased Wimmin.
