Janet Jackson / Control: The Remixes

About a year after the original 1986 release Janet Jackson released a remix album called Control: The Remixes. This collection of re-workings is now being reissued on vinyl and CD.

This album features dub mixes, dance mixes, extended mixes, ‘extra beat’ versions of the hit singles, including ‘When I Think Of You’, ‘What Have You Done For Me Lately’ and ‘Let’s Wait Awhile’. Originally, there were a confusing amount of variations across formats and territories, but this new CD edition appears to include everything on the original UK CD release – except for the ‘dub edit’ of the Shep Pettibone Mix of ‘The Pleasure Principle’ – and then adds five further mixes:

  • ‘When I Think Of You’ (Extra Beats)
  • ‘Control’ (Extended Version)
  • ‘Nasty’ (Extended Mix)
  • ‘What Have You Done For Me Lately’ (Dub Version)
  • ‘Control’ (Acapella)

This makes the new CD a 12-track affair. A 2LP gatefold vinyl set features the very same selection across four sides. It’s not clear yet if these have all been remastered, although one assumes they probably have.

Control: The Remixes will be released on 26 July 2019
