The Red Shoes: Shoedance - UK CD Single (Part 2)

This was part two of a two CD release for The Red Shoes. Unlike part one, which came in a standard sized CD case, this release came in a slim one. I've left one of my original photos at the bottom so you can see this.

Apart from the cover art, which I really like, this CD doesn't have much more going for it. Someone got the bright idea to remix The Red Shoes, and very badly I might add. This release is solely based on the Shoedance remix, and it really is crap. It was cool at the time, for about five minutes, because it was something different - but it does get old fast. The remix just goes on and on and on. The most annoying part is listening to Lindsay Kemp saying "She tricked ya, ya know. It's really happening to you." about ten thousand times. It also makes use of dialogue from 'The Line, The Cross and the Curve'... sort of like in the U.S. version of the Rubberband Girl video, but much worse. The whole remix is very drawn out.

As you can see, I left the original price sticker on the case when I bought this in Camden Town back in 1994. I doubt you'd get this for £3.99 now.
