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.
