INXS - Original Sin (US 12 Inch) (1984) @320 w/ Art




01) Original Sin (Dance Version) @ 5:57
02) Original Sin (LP Version) @ 5:19
03) Stay Young @ 3:25
04) Just Keep Walking @ 2:45
05) Original Sin (Extended Remix) @ 6:20






This 12 Inch has been blogged before in various bit rates & vinyl versions. I wanted to post the full version w/ an extra track too. What's keen to note here is that the LP Version on this 12 inch is actually the Extended Remix. Not sure how that got messed up in the pressing.

Track 2 was taken from the 2011 Remaster of 'The Swing'
Track 3 was taken from the 2011 Remaster of  'Underneath The Colours'
Track 4 was taken from the 2011 Remaster of  'INXS'

Slade - Run Runaway - My Oh My (Promo 12 Inch) (1984)



01) Run Runaway @ 4:59
02) My Oh My @ 4:09




I've had this Demo 12 inch since '84 and only up until now have decided to pull it out and render it to MP3 format. The only unique thing about this is the fact that 'Run Runaway' is a full 5 minutes as opposed to the LP/CD version @ 4:22. It provides a longer intro prior to the main track kicking in.

I used to work this track into my 'Retro 80's DJ sets awhile back. It worked perfectly as a cross fade coming off of Big Country's 'In A Big Country (Extended Mix)'. Only a slight speed adjustment was needed to match the rapid fire drum pattern of both tracks.


Along with the tracks (@320) and the LP photos, I've included various other photos of Slade's 12" & 7" releases of the same tracks. The photo's taken from Discogs were cleaned up for my own personal reference.
