As much as Mute say ‘the vaults are empty’ we alll know this to be false,like that LTHY track (whatever that version was) plus others we know are urban myths,like the famous Client remixes of Oh L’Amour that Vince said was so bad they will never be released.MikeyC wrote: ↑Wed Jan 06, 2021 3:09 ammoxxey wrote: ↑Tue Jan 05, 2021 9:56 pmSo interesting when you read ABBA-esque was supposed to be an album. A loose London-based friend at the time was close to someone at Mute's PR department and he could get really early promos. I distinctly remember him telling me about Erasure working on ABBA tracks and discussed 6 and that they'd definitely include Summer Night City and Mamma Mia. For some reason, they were dropped from the release and it was put out as a 4-track.
To this day I still wish that we'd hear those two tracks. My guess is though, they weren't recorded, just proposed.
The same 'friend' once played me a very early release of Love To Hate You which I thought was amazing. Felt like it was months before Chorus was released. He wouldn't give me the vinyl though. Was told it couldn't be lent to anyone at any cost! Played, twice, but that was it. Memories!
Very cool info!!
The Neon singles sets we know we now must have all the versions edits,dubs,club mixes etc,so there must be versions like dub mixes/club mixes/instrumentals for most singles that have never seen the light of day,like the Drama! (Dogmatix vocal mix) which we definitely know exists as GRN has played it in his dj mixes.
