Think Pete has summed it up really. Not much to add, although there must be some more stuff from this era floating that could be added.

I love the promo only Open Your Mind (FON mix).

I also love Olympic (August 90). But I guess I would still vote for Eurobass mix for such a bonus release.

What about "80891 (Live)" and "Ski Family", as well as "Open Your Mind (Fon Mix)"?

Whatever happens, "In Yer Face (Facially Yours Mix)" has to be included! :)

ooops forgot about ski family and 808091 (aka donkey doctor live)

just 1 remix per disc is enough - gotta be tomix for cubik

Cheers Solarex (and Nick & Rodders for support) to remember The Open Your Mind FON mix!!! That one would have slipped my mind, it's vinyl-promo-only and even there mislabelled as the open mix! The bongos are unique!

Non-important info only: Just checked the Ooops mellow birds edit on the DJ only promo 7" and can confirm it's simply a shorter version of the commercially available Mellow Birds mix.

Yes, I would agree with the fon mix of open your mind. Also think that Ski Family and 808091 should be included, both are great tracks. And of course the only remix of In Yer Face, the glorious facially yours remix should be there. Out of all the Cubik remixes I prefer the Pan Am excursion, not keen on the kings county ones. If you're looking at an Ooops remix I personally prefer the Utsula head version. Don't think that the Olympic remixes differ too greatly form the original, is there any point adding one?

Good one Pete about the Lambrusco (Cowboy mix) on the Zang 5TX (CubikOlympicRemix12"). Graham mentions a Cowboy track in this posting, is it the same or yet another?

Absolutely! Just wondering if the one Graham mentioned is even more different to the Cowboy mix.

Definately the following:

IYF - Facially yours mix
Ooops - Mellow Birds
Cubik - Pan Am
Olympic - Eurobass
Lift - Heavy mix

Even though the above are commercial releases they will provide a fantastic bonus CD to sell to the public .

And provide CD alternatives of Ooops and Facially yours - for those without the import CDs.

The rest of the CD should hopefully be for the fans:

I prefer the soundgarden mix of Open Your Mind, but I recon that the Promo version should be on there as its rare and a great track. Its a shame you cant fit Open your mind soundgarden on exel and the promo on the bonus - so the newbies know how good it was. Is there any space on the alkbum?

Im not all that bothered about the US mixes of Cubik (including the Tomix) - but would understand the inclusion of the Tomix due to the US version.

Also not that bothered about Leo Leo vocal, would rather have other material on the Bonus.

Not sure if Ski family and 808091 should be on there even though they are great tracks - with the above line up there would perhaps be too many comercial releases. Although ski family is fantastic and 808091 is a grrrreat example of 808 live. Any other live tracks from that event??

I would like Ooops Utzula head mix included but dont think it should because of the above reason, (definately prefer Mellow birds - but both are great).

Definately include Lambrusco cowboy mix of cubik!! but substitute with Cowboy if its as good.




Any other unheard tracks from the era.

Any other mixes of Olympic that werent used that have been mentioned in the past. One mix only 30 seconds long but would be a good filler. Any quirky small bits on any of the albums would be great.

And finally Spanish heart. Is ther any demos of the song?

And can the album version of spanish heart have breaks either side so it can be taped off. This would be great not only for 808 fans but also New order fans. I understand that the whole point of exel was most of the tracks merged into each other - but I always found this a bit annoying as the first part of the intro has the previous track over it and needs to be cut off if recording off.

I don't think there's much hope of those two making it on. By the way, I believe 808091 live wasn't actually live, they simply used crowd noises from another artist's live album :)
