Not heard this version with the extra overdubs on the Tim Friese-Greene “Dance Remix”, there is just a lot more going on and I think I prefer it although it does go on a bit, I think the clue is in the “Extended” in the title.
Mark Berry gets his hands on the track to create a drum heavy “Dub Mix” which manages to reintroduce the synth to the Talk Talk sound replacing the piano riff, not sure it works. Especially that heavy orchestra hit that is used.
As most followers would agree it is all about the hidden B-side on this blog. I love the way the 7″ version of “It’s Getting Late In The Evening” is over 5 and half minutes long. It harks to the style of the next album, “Laughing Stock”, loose and quiet, gentle and emotional…a true masterpiece.
