OMD - History of Modern

Biography

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (most often abbreviated to OMD or O.M.D. ) are a synth-pop group whose founding members are originally from the Wirral Peninsula, England. OMD were originally assimilated in the greater new wave batch of synthesiser-based acts of the later 1970s-early 1980s. The group was founded in 1978 by Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys who remained, and were perceived as, ... Read more in Amazon's Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark Store

Blank & Jones have been very busy lately with their SO80s range. Initially they were various artists megamixes with 2 CDs of original 12" (including many not on the medley disc) - now they have focussed on compiling single artist discs. These are not megamixed, thankfully, but collect some choice 12" from the era (ie not 90s, or later, remakes/remixes). The sound is warm and rounded, not over-bright, and everything does sound very 'clean'.

Highlights here are "Talking Loud & Clear" on CD at last, "So In Love" 12" being the 2nd UK version (ie not the US/Brand New Remix which veers a long way from the original), and "Never Turn Away", which is a moody masterpiece!

Also the 12" here of "Tesla Girls" is a 4:44 edit of the US Special Extended Remix (which went even further than the Remix Extra that appeared on UK Cassette and some 12"). That mix was just over 5 minutes, and listening to this it appears to lose 20 seconds from the rather long intro, thus cutting to the vocals quicker. Although I don't have the Canadian 12", only the 4 track UK and US, this may well be same version - either way, it's a radical revamp which makes it onto CD for the first time.

But here is my main reason for 4 stars, "Forever Live and Die" - it's the band's preferred Tom Lord-Alge extended remix (starts with a fade-in like the standard version). That's good news, you'd think, until you find it 'jumps' at exactly the same point as the vast majority of the vinyl pressings out there. Whilst it is 'on a beat' I have heard a version that is around 2-3 seconds longer and does not do this (and isn't some home-done re-edit!).

Blank & Jones did respond to this on the OMD forum, as they were given access to 'master tapes' by EMI, so could only use what they had.

OMD

80's

12" tracks

I loved it and will look to buy more in the series. Back in the day, the 12" was the one to own, but nowadays they are hard to find indeed. Even if I still owned all my own vinyl, I have no means of playing it, so its great to hear these old favourites again.

A great collection of OMD remixes and extended mixes.
As an OMD fan from way back I have most of these on vinyl, but it was great to get them all on CD.
Highly recommended for all OMD fans!
