The Pool - Where Did We Go Wrong (US 12 Inch / 1984)

01 Where Did We Go Wrong (Extended Mix) 5:05
02 Place In The Sun 4:13
03 Where Did We Go Wrong (Album Mix) 3:43

I recently picked up The Pool's '333+' remaster from 2014. I had no idea it was out! I'm quite happy to finally have an abundance of their tracks in remastered form, from the mid 80's. I was heavily into the Enigma records catalogue back then, so this will be a nice addition to my files. This brings me to my post for today. I originally heard this track on the Enigma Variations sampler from 1985 and I was able to locate the 12 inch version of it. All the art is from my actual 12 inch, but all the recordings are taken from the remastered CD. The tracks sound great and weren't 'brick-walled' in the remastering process!

V/A - Art Of Mix 911 (CD / 1993)

I was in the process of looking for some lost 'Art Of Mix' CD's when I ran across this compilation. It was out of place with the others and I nearly forgot that I had it. After some further Discogs research, I see that it is an 'Art Of Mix' compilation. Yeah for me, lucky for you. Unfortunately, I do not have the CD 2 of this set for some reason. Damn for me. As for my overall review of the 'AOM' series...ah, I don't know. I didn't use the remixes when I was djing. I found them a bit repetitive. I was always partial to anything 'Razormaid'. I, like you, am going to go back in and revisit these...just to be sure. (Insert winking smiley face).
