Cherry Red Records will issue a new Paul Young collection titled Remixes and Rarities, via their Cherry Pop imprint on 17 June 2013.
As the name suggests, this new 2CD collection will feature a selection many of Paul Young’s best-loved singles in their full length, extended remix form, along with other rarities such as B-sides and cassette-only long versions.
Highlights include, the full extended mix of US number one Every Time You Go Away (unreleased on CD outside Japan), the ‘US Dance Floor Smash’ version of I’m Gonna Tear Your Playhouse Down (remixed by John ‘Tokes’ Potoker) and other CD debuts such as the near-nine minute extended mix of album track I Was In Chains (previously only available on the cassette of The Secret Of Association) and the epic live version of No Parlez album cut, Oh Women (from the Love Of The Common People seven-inch double-pack and The Live Edition Japanese LP).
All in all, every 45 Paul Young released as a solo artist in the 1980s is featured on this set in remixed form. So while fans will delight at the rarities, it also doubles as a fantastic ‘hits’ collection representing the pop-soul singer’s most successful era.
At this point we need to hold our hands up and and declare an interest, since this compilation was conceived and compiled by SuperDeluxeEdition editor Paul Sinclair, for Cherry Red. This involvement will allow us to bring you the inside line on this set with some exclusive updates coming on this release between now and 17 June!
Paul Young’s Remixes and Rarities will come complete with a Japanese style collector’s ‘OBI’ strip and cover art true to the era.
