Erasure – Blue Savannah (US Promo 12″)

When Mike first contacted me about contributing on this blog, a few years back, he mentioned how different the US 12″ releases where compared to the equivalent European releases. The US releases normally had different versions and remixes than us. Before the Internet, fans would be unaware that the band they had loyally followed had different versions of songs out over the water. I think hearing about Duran Duran’s totally different sounding US album release of “Rio” was the first I time I became aware, catering for the “tastes” of American listener. So apart from the finding a “US Remix” on a limited edition 12″ they were like the holy grail.

A prime example of this is release from Erasure in 1989, remixed by Shep Pettibone and Japanese sound engineer and producer, Goh Hotoda. A very different and a refreshing listen to a classic Erasure track. The Dub Mix is a lot tighter and harder sounding, Andy and Vince to the Dance Floor…..Let’s go!!
