Favourite CD maxi singles

Discussion in 'Comeback corner' started by torontodj, Apr 12, 2017.

  1. Hi, what song/artist are you discussing here, the only Juno Reactor track I know is the fab Traci Lords' Control. I'd love to hear more of that. Maybe this is?
    It's credited to United Citizen Federation ft. Sarah Brightman (officially). There's a dub and a vocal, interestingly I think the Dub is a bit better. I know, shoot me!
     
  2. Another Brightman banger! Harem had a good maxi single

    including the amazing Hex Hector Vocal Mix



    and my favourite It's A Beautiful Day (Groove Brothers Remix)



    I love me some popera over a banging beat!
     
  3. Excellent single (I have it too), but there too many different fonts on that cover! Placing that 'Billboard' line in her dress is such an unstylish choice.

  4. Actually, it's Hollywood by Ana Voog.

  5. Gosh, I'm really not Sarah's biggest fan. I can take the camp, disco stuff - in fact, I Lost My Heart... is one of my all time favourites. The remixes commissioned for the re-release/Starship Troopers film tie-in are great! I do also like one Sarah Brightman album - Fly. It's a little avant garde and dark and, well, interesting... but that's about it. Actually, I should check out Dive, as I haven't yet and I think that'll be something for me, from what I've read about it.

  6. I have always been partial to some Sarah Brightman. The run from Eden, through La Luna, Harem and Symphony, is great.

  7. I'm not a big Sarah fan myself. I saw her over a decade ago in concert. All I remember about the show was her flying around.

    But I do like some of her remixes.

  8. Oh thanks, I'm playing the youtube video embedded in the page linked above, I really like it. I'm gonna get that cd!
    Absolutely, her peak as far as I'm concerned!
     
  9. Ohmyg popera! Hahhahahaha never heard that, I love it!
    However I must say that the original version of Harem kinda old-man pisses over any remix. It's already built like a club anthem!

    Also, as a few pages back someone clearly loves Tori, I'm amazed that the below hasn't been mentioned. It's a masterpiece. Her first work of covers is phenomenal and nobody has ever got even close to this level of artistry:

  10. It's the title of the first Associates best of, from 1990! Always loved that title.

  11. Tori Amos had a lot of great singles, with "Spark" (with the stunning "Purple People") being one of my favorites.

    I recently bought Sarah Brightman's "Harem" and "Whiter Shade Of Pale" maxis online - had been looking for them for a while.

  12. I never understood where those singles came from, A Whiter Shade Of Pale, A Question Of Honor.... are they non-album singles?
     
  13. Question of Honour is from Fly (1996), and then in remixed form on the Best Of 1990-2000. A Whiter Shade of Pale is, I think, exclusive to that latter compilation. I thought it was on La Luna, but it's not.

  14. Whiter Shade Of Pale is on the US edition of La Luna.

  15. Aha! I always associate it with that era.
     
  16. I already have two La Luna's, I didn't think the US was even more different. I actually think one time I checked its origin but I forgot.
    My favorite is the one with First Of May (live). I love that track! Where is it from anyway, is it in video form on anything released on dvd?

  17. One of the things I love most about Tori is how generous she's been with B-sides on her singles, whether they're covers or tracks that didn't make their parent albums. And more often than not, they're incredibly strong quality-wise which makes it even better.

  18. The US La Luna is quite different from the original Euro release. The original Euro release is out of print, making re-prints of the album identical to the US one.

    A live version of (the stunning) "First Of May" was included on the original Euro pressing. That song can also be found on The Very Best Of 1990-2000, in a studio version. It is also included on the Japanese deluxe edition of Winter Symphony and the One Night In Eden DVD.

  19. So that's why Amazon's listing confused me. My copy has Whiter Shade, and I got it on release in HMV.
     
  20. But is it the same performance on One Night In Eden? I have all her dvds but only watched one.
