THINGS CAN ONLY GET BETTER (US CD)

INFO > About a year after the original release of “Things Can Only Get Better”, Warner Music issued these new mixes from Neil Claxton & Johnny Jay (Development Corporation) and Cleveland City’s Rhyme Time Productions. The ‘Superfly Development Vocal Edit’ is exclusive to the US maxi-single, which is also the only digital source for the ‘Overworld Mix.’ Attracted by the song’s chorus of optimism, the UK’s Labour Party adopted “Things Can Only Get Better” for use during the 1997 general election campaign, prompting yet another reissue of the single.

NOTE > Normally, I would consolidate unique tracks from related releases into one file. However, I felt the variations between these singles—as well as the discernible volume difference—warranted separate posts.
