*Bonus track

INFO > To promote the US release of 1999 collection “The Best Of Yaz”, Reprise/Mute issued a double A-side single comprising new mixes of “Don’t Go” and “Situation.” In the UK, the remixes of “Don’t Go” backed “Only You” on two CD singles. And although a couple of tracks from the UK issue of “Situation” are repeated, there are other versions here not present on that release. Todd ‘The God’ Terry proves himself merely mortal with a faithful but uninspired update of “Don’t Go”; however, his dub version is more inventive. The Digital Blonde instrumental bears nothing in common with the original—even an attempt to incorporate that famous synth riff comes off unrecognizable.

INFO > To promote the 1999 best of collection, “Only Yazoo”, Mute Records remixed and reissued “Only You”, “Don’t Go”, and “Situation.” The newer reworks of “Situation” by Peter Rauhofer, Richard Vission, and Dave Ralph & company aren’t terribly memorable; however, the release also features mixes from 1990 that were previously unavailable on CD. Nine years later, we finally got the full-length remixes by François Kevorkian, Paul Dakeyne, and Miller & Saunders, along with the 1982 dub.

The enhanced CD also includes the promo video for “Only You.”

INFO > Nigel Champion and Mark Franklin formed techno-house team N-Joi in 1989; the duo was later joined by vocalist Samantha ‘Saffron’ Sprackling. The aptly named “Anthem” first appeared on N-Joi’s white label debut EP, and then featured on the act’s first release for Deconstruction, “Music From A State Of Mind.” A proper single issue followed, and “Anthem” broke into the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart in 1991. This 1995 US reissue includes new remixes by Darrin Friedman and Richard Vission & Pete Lorimer, along with the original mixes.
