In other words a more keyboardy Duran Duran and their best track by them, (the trio of Simon Le Bon, Nick Rhodes and Andy Taylor) released in 1986. Remixed by Nile Rodgers over the original production by Alex Sadkin. The “Flame Game” short dub mix is as street as you could probably get for 1986, a nice funky riff with layers of percussion. A bonus is a very experimental and long mix of previous hit single “Election Day” doing a bit of an epic, ZTT -style mix of an already epic track – MIX OF THE MONTH.
