This dancemix is in general a kind of greatest-hits-compilation in a special way. Following the given CUE-sheet and burned to CD you will have a continous
flow of music. Most of the tracks are not complete in this way, it's faded in and out and overlapped after half of the original track. For this, every original track was speeded up or down a little bit at overlapping points or in general for matching the drumbeats. The special technique used to do this prevents the audience from really realizing the speeding.
With this mix I tryed to do myself a favour. Midge is one of extraordinary artists, which often don't get the attention they should. Probably sometimes his own mistake, sometimes it's beside the mainstream, not following the rules of nowadays music business. Nethertheless, his music-vita is amazing. For me, his life in music started with SLIK, a teenie-band which reminds very much to the sound of the BAY CITY ROLLERS. He joined Glen Matlock's shortliving RICH KIDS after his split from the SEXPISTOLS. RICH KIDS recorded unfortunally only one album. He played for THIN LIZZY during a tour, then he met BILLY CURRIE, who introduced him into ULTRAVOX after JOHN FOXX left the band and they needed a singer and good guitarplayer. With ULTRAVOX he had his greatest time, introduced with their VIENNA-Album the band developed to a leading band of the New-Romantics-Age. During that time he collaborated with BILLY CURRIE also on another project called VISAGE during VISAGE's 1st two albums which amazing success. But the main focus was ULTRAVOX and until their split in 1986 he had huge influence on the typical sound of ULTRAVOX. He wrote together with BOB GELDOF the BAND AID-song DO THEY KNOW IT'S CHRISTMAS, also a No.1.
After the split of ULTRAVOX he started a solo-carrier, and this mix is about the best songs of his solo-albums, I am sure you know some of them, hits like
COLD COLD HEART, IF I WAS, ANSWERS TO NOTHING and BREATHE.
He is still very active on tour these days, don't miss him if he comes to your town, you will be surprised about his energy, when he plays old and new songs, even it is an acoustic version. His voice is brilliant like in old UVOX-days, his talent in music is awesome.
Unfortunally he made no new album since some years, time for a new one methinks Midgey?
I hope you enjoy this mix in the same way I do, I put a special goodie into that mix. It's track 13 "HEAVEN". For sure you never heard before that 5-minute-track I mixed together from 3 different versions. Hope you like it.

Normally the MP3-file and the CUE-file should stay in the same directory after downloading. Start your burning software and
open the given CUE-sheet. After a while of computing the software will start to burn the CD. A little bit patience is needed, the
cue-sheet contains only the basic informations and the burning software has to compile the missing data by itself. This only needs
some time, because of the amount of tracks and finding the trackpoints within the MP3-file for every track from the beginning on.
All tracks are chained together and encoded in a single file with 192 kBit-Bitrate. This should be enough for reconverting to
audio-CD or wav-format.
The project should automatically burn in so called DAO-Mode (Disc At Once) to a 80-minute-disc.
Why in this way with MP3?
Because it its the fastest way for me to give you this. All other formats are exotic or just need more space and are wasting more
of my limited bandwith. I've choosen MP3 because not everybody is owning a highspeed-dataline these days, like me here in
Why this not in a lossless format?
Because its quality is ok for this dancemix. If you download this, you have to own the original albums of the band/artist and there
you have the lossless version of the tracks. This here is for experimenting and having some fun with the music of a wonderful

If some of the older mixes are not available at the time you want to have it, simply stay connected for a while. I am sure somebody will help you. I will try to
seed as much as I can too, weekends preferred and "balanced" on the most wanted, the reason for this is my limited upload bandwith.
If you like what you got, please SHARE IT WITH OTHERS AND DONT LEAVE THIS TORRENT TO EARLY AFTER LEECHING. Creating a mix
like this is sometimes not as easy as it looks and I am not able to give all of my torrents a continous seed.
Thanks for reading, and pls. do me a favour: Pls. put some more comments to it. Do you like it?
