Product Description

From the original house of 12 excess, Zang Tuum Tumb, Trevor Horn and his Robot Orchestra present over 150 minutes of blockbusters, rarities, vanities and mysteries. Trevor s team at Sarm West studios worked overtime in the 80s, pumping out highly creative reworkings of their finest productions at an incredible rate. The Art of the 12" is only the third compilation from ZTT Records, following the highly collectible Sampled (1986) and Zance (1994). It contains 22 classic, rare and unreleased 12" remixes from the ZTT vaults. Add seven avant-garde interludes - or microremixes - and that's 29 tracks in total. It's a treasure trove for fans of the label and its biggest acts (Frankie Goes To Holly wood, Propaganda, Art of Noise , 808 State...), as it contains some of their rarest and most accomplished remixes. These include: 1. The highly sought after FGTH remixes of Welcome to the Pleasuredome (Pleasurefix) and The Only Star In Heaven (Starfix) 2. A previously unreleased, period 12" remix by Trevor Horn of Propaganda s Dr Mabuse 3. The six-minute 12" remix of Claudia Brücken's duet with Glenn Gregory (Heaven 17), When Your Heart Runs Out of Time 4. A previously-unreleased alternate take of (Theme from) Laughter by Act 5. The Jewelled remix of Duel - the highlight of the Propaganda remix album, Wishful Thinking (and the famous BBC Rally/Channel 4 American Football theme) 6. The third and final installment of Propaganda's Testament trilogy - the previously unreleased Testament Two, filling the gap between Testament One and Testament Three from the deluxe edition of A Secret Wish (SALVOMDCD014)

By rights, every ZTT 12-inch single should have had a compulsory bonus track with the sound of cash registers ringing, because Messrs Horn, Morley et al. certainly knew how to milk the fan for every penny. Not content to release merely a 7" edit of each song and a long version on 12" vinyl, ZTT cluttered record shops with multiple mixes of their current fave raves. "Got the latest Frankie 12-inch single?.... oh, but that mix is SO last Thursday...". In their favour, however, the 12" mixes from ZTT were at least designed for the punters to listen to as well as dance to, and so avoided most of the remix sins of the period - hey! drum machine solo! Nice.

This ambitious collection of extended artefacts tries its best to gather up some of those remixes and tinkered-with versions of songs that don't crop up on "12-inch/80s" and similar compilations. Some of these haven't been released on CD before and most were hard to find- until now.

There are some obvious gems here: the surreal "Young Person's Guide to the 12-inch" version of Frankie's 'Rage Hard' features a soothing female voice saying things like "Now... the funky guitar" in a detached manner, while slices of the song arrive and depart underneath. There is yet another mix of 'Dr Mabuse' which, no matter how many different ways you hear it, is still an astonishing recording. Propaganda's Claudia Brucken and Glenn Gregory wallow in the gorgeous 12-inch (6 minutes plus) version of "When Your Heart Runs Out of Time" and I was very pleased that the compilers left the little snatch of dialogue from the film 'Insignificance' that preceded the song so perfectly on the original 12" vinyl.

10 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Patrick Gleeson on 13 Mar. 2011
Format: Audio CD
In the white-hot heat of the FGTH explosion the extended 12" remix was instrumental in promoting releases beyond the time that singles would normally drop down the charts and fall off the public radar. To some this smacked of exploitation, but to those fans who bought into all this it was anything but. The reason was these remixes were utterly superb - a multitude of arrangements, perfect production values, attention to detail (down to the artistry of the packaging) and a plethora of exclusive b-sides. ZTT did the same thing for all the artists in it's roster, thereby producing the delights you can hear on this compilation. As well as Frankie, there are rare cuts from Propaganda, Andrew Poppy, 808 State et al. There are also some of the little snippets that were buried across many ZTT 12"s beloved of the collector to round off this set.

Thoroughly Recommended.

I think it has so many songs, with one cd would be enough. Of course some of those versions are good, very good indeed.
