    Guid 12 Inches

    A lot of lazilly-remixed 33 cms were served up to us gullible young fools in the early to mid 80s. Were there any good ones that were worth the extra pound or so? Obviously Blue Monday, so thatís off the list. One Great Thing by Big Country was quite good. Others?

    Glad you've excluded Blue Monday as that was the daddy and blows everything else out of the water.

    I had a whole bunch of Stone Roses 12"s, including 'Sally Cinnamon' but I gave them away to my little sister. Also in the pile was the Inspiral Carpets "This Is How It Feels". It either had a live recording of 'Commercial Rain' on it, or that was on another 12" but it was absolutely brilliant.

    Thinking back to the early-mid 80s, my favourite was probably a 12" of Bronski Beat, "Smalltown Boy". They used to play the single edit as a video in cinemas at the time IIRC.

    Depeche Mode were the other big 12"s in those days and I had a good few of theirs.

    My all-time favourite 12" record was a decade later though - De'lacy "Hideaway" '95 Deep Dish Mix, narrowly beating a 12" remix of Robin S "Show Me Love" which I picked up in Melbourne, of all places, a year or two before.

    Now the memories are flooding back!

    I had a quality 12" of The Source featuring Candi Staton doing "You Got The Love". It had such an impact that me and my flatmates at the time had found a stray cat, took it home and named it Staton in tribute

    Other classic was Massive Attack, "Unfinished Sympathy", I think the Voyager remix.

    Again, they got snapped up by my little sister, and I suspect and fear she probably punted them at some point.

    Got a big box of them, mostly late 70s and I really need to get rid of them although I'll be keeping Blue Monday for posterity!

    You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real) by Sylvester and I Travel by Simple Minds are 2 that come to mind right away.

    33cm? Must've gained a bit over the years.

    Tainted Dub was the best version.

    Brand New Friend by Lloyd Cole was also a fantastic pressing. I've got loads that I could list. This Mortal Coil are worth a mention with Sixteen Days.

    Blue Monday was my first vinyl purchase. I had no idea it was going to be the biggest 12inch ever. Confusion was a great extended version as well, I preferred it as track at the time and I think I'll listen to again to see if I still do.

    Had to dig some of my vinyl out for this.

    Orbital - Naked and the dead (I have loads of the Hartnoll brothers, my favourites change constantly)
    Stone Roses- Sally Cinnamon (Again loads of SR, although I had to give Ozyhibby back 2 bootleg live recordings that I was keeping for him)
    Leftfield - Not forgotten (Takes me back)
    Primal Scream - Come together
    World of twist - Sheís a rainbow (its a picture disc)
    St Etienne - Only love can break your heart (Hacienda bus to Glasgow from The Dodger)
    Ride - Dreams burn down
    Northside - My rising star
    Bridewell taxis - Honesty (This is 7 not 12 inch)
    Real people - Window pane (Played at the Kronk in Fife)
    808 state - In yer face
    Paris Angels - All on you

    My sister in law got a turntable for Xmas so I listened to lots of these for the first time in about 20 years recently, happy days. Glad I kept my vinyl, its all still in really good condition.

    I had a bunch of these, probably they're in the loft.

    Fool's Gold with the dolphins and Simple Minds* - The American spring to mind.

    A Boy Called Gerald - Voodoo Ray and Blow Your House Down are both magnificent and guaranteed to piss off the neighbours

    The Kane Gang - Small Town Creed was another favourite.

    Lloyd Cole was good.

    Age of Chance Kiss was good too.

    It was! McEwans used to promote a lot of young Scottish bands at the time. My mate worked for them and got loads of free concert tickets.
