Ultravox - Lament (UK 12 Inch / 1984)

01 Lament (Extended Mix) 8:06
02 Heart Of The Country (Instrumental) 4:26
03 Lament 4:15

Continuing from my last post. Ultravox 'Lament' was selected because of the catlogue number. Not chronological at this point, but an order nonetheless. All the same standards were applied to this recording as was the last Ultravox recording. 24/48 WAV and HD scans. A mass amount of time was taken to photoshop the ills of wear to this sleeve. Shared to discogs along with the sale of this actual release.

Ultravox - Dancing With Tears In My Eyes (UK 12 Inch / 1984)

01 Dancing With Tears In My Eyes (Special Re-Mix) 9:59
02 Dancing With Tears In My Eyes 4:11
03 Building 3:14 

Chrysalis records recently released a two CD remaster of Ultravox 'Extended' mixes. This covers most, if not all their twelve inch mixes, minus any b-sides or seven inch edits. I would have preferred each extended single to be released as a stand alone with all of them fitting into a 'box' set series! Seeing as that is not happening, I decided to drag out all the Ultravox twelve inch records I own and take them to task myself. Seems rather lofty of me, as most of you know my posting frequency here on SSTM. It is, but let's just keep that to ourselves (laugh, wink, nudge). Here is the first. All recordings for this are in WAV 24/48, recorded from my vinyl along with all the HD scans. 

Side note, if you are looking for the U.S. Version of this record, feel free to visit the well known site Burning The Ground for a beautiful lossless recording along with art. I was going to post my copy, but Paul has already done a fine job taking it on.
