Relax. Come again with Zang Tuum Tumb on an expedition through the remix archives, the tape jungle generated by Frankie Goes To Hollywood, ZTT and Trevor Horn during the band s unstoppable domination of the pop charts in the mid-1980s. In fact, during Frankie's imperial reign, from 1984-87, Trevor Horn and the ZTT team created enough remix tapes to stretch from Sarm Studios to the moon and back. Such was their industry that we're almost 30 years into the digital age and we still haven't caught up. There remain mixes that were issued on cassette and vinyl that have never appeared in digital formats. Add to this more fruit from the first proper expedition through the FGTH avenues of the Sarm tape room and you have some of the inspiration that lead to Sex Mix, which draws from the breadth of the band's career and gets its name from a particularly fine reworking of Relax (disc 2, track 1). Notable also is the special (1985 singlette) edition of the 'Welcome to the Pleasuredome' single entitled 'All in the Mind, All in the Body - Frankie Goes To Hollywood in The Pleasure Dome'. This singlette provides the first five tracks of Disc One and they re followed by 'Relax (International)', a rare b-side from the accompanying vinyl, and another classic singlette soundscape: 'The Power of Love'. The 'Oyster' and 'Holier Than Thou' sections here are all fully restored and remastered. From the Liverpool-era, we've unearthed the full, 17-minute version of 'Rage Hard', the 23-minute Warriors of the Wasteland (Compacted), which has been unavailable since 1986. Plus there are two b-sides - Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? and Watching the Wildlife - that have never been issued on CD before.

For those who get a copy with the mono tracks (the newer versions have been fixed), you can order a replacement disk free of charge, provided you have a purchase receipt. I ordered my copy on Amazon and still had the email, which I forwarded to them, 10 days or so later (it ships from the UK) the replacement arrived.
...However, let me quote the label's web site on this one:
"Please note that due to, as they say in the trade, a 'technical f*** up', mono masters were sent to press for CD1 tracks 01-05. One channel is mirrored on both sides.
We wanted to point this out, even if you may not have noticed, even if - like Phil Spector - you would have been delighted.
We hope this will not spoil your enjoyment of the All In The Body, All In The Mind singlette, presented on CD for the first time and, for the first time ever, with Welcome To The Pleasuredome (How To Remake The World) in its original, full length 11:40 incarnation.
If and when a suitable stereo master becomes available, we will offer this as a free, lossless download as per the recent Nasty Rox Inc. update."
I let you draw you own conclusion...
