Sigue Sigue Sputnik - Success (US 12 Inch / 1988)

01) Success (12 Inch Dance Mix) 6:44
02) Success (7 Inch Mix) 3:51
03) Success (Funky Mix) 5:27
04) Success (Balaeracidic Mix) 6:02
05) Success (Micro-Dot Mix) 6:26
06) Success (Metal Hammer Mix) 4:44

Another 12 inch release from Sigue Sigue Sputnik ala 1988. This is a more refined S.S.S with a stab at mainstream 'success'. Perhaps after the 1986 release, some of the members actually learned to play their instruments. Either way, there are a slue of mixes here. I prefer the 12 Inch Dance and Metal Hammer Mixes. They remain closest to the original. All the other mixes are attempts to fit in with the 'Summer Of Love- Acid-Balaeric-Ibiza' sound of the time. The Funky Mix is good fun, including it's ample sample of Michael Douglas from the movie 'Wall Street'

All the mixes and photos are from this original 12 inch.
