Having a day of nostalga, 80s pop and revelling in Trevor Horn production and came across the 12" 'Attack Mix' of 'Warriors of the Wasteland' by Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Gary Moore adds some really great riffing and solos - he is all over it. Anyone else heard this which to me is a bit of gem?

It may all be a bit pop for a lot of you and fabricated but I actually really like Welcome To The Pleasuredome and some of the mixes that were done are great examples of the 80s remix...some of the Two Tribes and Welcome stuff is so Trevor Horn and to my ears a production master class of the time. I think Steve Howe played on a fair bit of it too - probably others too.

On a side note:

I have created a CD of various stuff that I converted from vinyl years ago as I bought a box of about 70-80 12" records from the mid 80s from a car boot...mostly for Whitesnake/Scorpions/Def Leppard etc that was out at the time. Got them all for £20 notes and they were all mint and in plastic covers!

Anyway some real gems in amongst all of these 12" records...I think I now have like 15 Frankie 12" records a pile of rock stuff including Magnum (forgot they had loads of top 40 hits back then), ToDieFor, Bon jovi, Leppard (Great sleeves I have to say), Alias, Heart, Whitesnake (Via Voltage Mix of Fool For Your Loving....eh, just weird!). I have to say I do really like the 87 'remix' versions of Standing in the Shadow, Need Your Love So Bad and You're Gonna Break My Heart Again not sure why they were not included in the recent anniversary verion but I have hunted out a US compilation with two of these and some others remixes (anyone else got this double disk called Here I Go Again: The Collection' which has the three Geffen albums and extra tracks spread over two disks?).....pretty decent remastered compilation even if just for the different versions of songs.

Also dug out my Vive Le Rock/Apollo 9 12" singles by Adam Ant from back then...a love it! Made me dig out the more recent remaster with bonus tracks and this is a great pop/rock album IMHO...produced by Tony Visconti as well!
