Biography

Frankie Goes To Hollywood… they didn’t so much capture the zeitgeist, as kidnap it, tie it up, hold it down, and have their way with it.
Certainly, back in the mid-eighties, they were omnipresent in the press, on the street, (due to Paul Morley’s brilliant hijacking of designer Katherine Hamnett’s ‘Choose Life’ t-shirt range) and even on TV and radio, at ... Read more in Amazon's Frankie Goes To Hollywood Store

Product Description

Relax. Come again with Zang Tuum Tumb on an expedition through the remix archives, the tape jungle generated by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, ZTT and Trevor Horn during the band s unstoppable domination of the pop charts in the mid-1980s. In fact, during Frankie's imperial reign, from 1984-87, Trevor Horn and the ZTT team created enough remix tapes to stretch from Sarm Studios to the moon and back. Such was their industry that we're almost 30 years into the digital age and we still haven't caught up. There remain mixes that were issued on cassette and vinyl that have never appeared in digital formats. Add to this more fruit from the first proper expedition through the FGTH avenues of the Sarm tape room and you have some of the inspiration that lead to Sex Mix, Volume One, which draws from the breadth of the band's career and gets its name from a particularly fine reworking of Relax (disc 2, track 1). Notable also is the special (1985 singlette) edition of the 'Welcome to the Pleasuredome' single entitled 'All in the Mind, All in the Body - Frankie Goes To Hollywood in The Pleasure Dome'.

The first five tracks of Disc One are exactly that, albeit in glorious mono as the only master tapes available were mono. These are followed by 'Relax (International)', a rare b-side from the accompanying vinyl, and another classic singlette soundscape: 'The Power of Love'. The 'Oyster' and 'Holier Than Thou' sections here are all fully restored and remastered. From the Liverpool-era, we've unearthed the full, 17-minute version of 'Rage Hard', the 23-minute Warriors of the Wasteland (Compacted), which has been unavailable since 1986. Plus there are two b-sides - Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? and Watching the Wildlife - that have never been issued on CD before.

When myself, and Peter Gill, were made aware of the "error" on the first five tracks some weeks before it's official release we contacted ZTT and Salvo to ask if they were going to correct it. Despite several emails and phone calls nobody would return our calls or answer the emails. On one occasion Peter called Salvo and asked to be put through to several people and was told that "everybody was out" and there was nobody there to speak to him apart from the girl answering the phone. To date we have had no response from ZTT or Salvo and despite requests we have not even been sent a copy of the release.
I would like to apologise to the people who have been disappointed with this album and inform them that every effort was made, on mine and Peter's behalf, to try and correct it. I am apologising despite having nothing to do with this release because I feel it may reflect badly on the band and the band's reputation and it would be nice to see a word from ZTT or Salvo amongst these pages. ZTT's only public response to date has been the rather sneering and arrogant press release referring to the mistake as a "technical **** up" on their Facebook page. The fact that they have tried to turn this mistake into some sort of marketing ploy and describing the mixes as being in "glorious mono" looks like a pretty desperate attempt to save face. That said, I am so in the dark as to why this mistake happened that I am not sure if the error was down to ZTT or Salvo. What I do know is that if the band would have been consulted or involved in this release then due care and attention would have been taken to deliver the product in all it's glorious stereo.
I don't doubt that the rest of the content is great and reading the reviews it seems most people are happy with it.

Firstly, this CD should be heaven for us Frankie fans, but as you can see from other reviews the first 5 track are NOT Mono, they are one channel.

Clearly whomever mastered this CD, didn't pay any attention to the job at hand.

Now mistakes of course can happen, but there has been no firm response from Salvo/ZTT as to what they intend to do to rectify the error, they have stated that they plan to issue a Lossless replacement, as/when/if the appropriate master is found.

But, they MUST have had the original master, as it's unbelievable that ZTT only had the one channel master, why would that occur?.

It's with a heavy heart that I've given this a one star review, as I love Frankie Goes to Hollywood but, standards are important.

Even members of the band have expressed their annoyance at this glaring error& but even they haven't even had a single response from Salvo/ZTT

Avoid this release until the problem is rectified.

My copy is being returned as faulty

I mirror all the other negative reviews on here, this release should be withdrawn, the sound quality on tracks 1-5 on CD one is awful! ZTT have to do better than this for their fans!

Initial pressings of this title had a mastering error on the first five tracks of cd one. In an effort to promote the release and not lose any sales until the error could be rectified ZTT and Salvo music tried to hype the mistake as being something of a marketing treasure. Here's the spin from their website that the label tried to put on what was very obviously a big mistake..."mono masters were sent to press for CD1 tracks 01-05...We wanted to point this out, even if you may not have noticed, even if - like Phil Spector - you would have been delighted.." Phil may have been delighted from his jail cell but this listener wasn't. Mono tracks I can deal with,but there's nothing delightful about the mono tracks presented here. It's a single channel of the two channel stereo signal in mirrored mono (which means it's like moving the balance control all the way to the left and having only that side coming out of both speakers). Forget it. You might as well only hook up one speaker. Personal involvement of former members of Frankie and people power eventually won out and the technical "insert expletive here" was rectified. On 21st of November 2012 ZTT/Salvo Music released a media statement writing that "stereo masters have been located" and that new copies of cd 1 have been pressed. It gives instructions on how to go about obtaining a replacement disc. You will have to examine the matrix code imprinted on to the inner ring of the non-label side to determine if you have a faulty cd. Full details are at ztt.com with the relevant codes and how to go about obtaining a replacement disc.

With that technical mix up rectified,an originally critical review becomes one of praise for there is much here to be enjoyed on Sex Mix.
