Paul McCartney ‎– Spies Like Us (12″)

So going for the mainstream with this from 1985 and from the film with the same name starring Chevy Chase and Dan Ackroyd. McCartney discovers the Emulator and does a little Queen tribute. Backed by mixes by John “Tokes” Potoker , Art Of Noise and Gary Langan. The AON mix , track A2, is a little disappointing, it does finish with a quiet close with Anne Dudley on the piano outro but it’s a little repetitive. The best mix and the one that contains loads of film soundbites is the Potoker mix, track A1. A Wings collaboration appears as a B-side, originally from 1975 but remixed by AON member Langan.
