HUMAN LEAGUE-You remind me of gold (Dodi's crossover mix) (1983)

''Mirror man'' was a 12'' single released back in 1982. But this is not reason for this post.
Reason is on B side of this single.

I made this crossover couple of months ago for our friend Niels over there on the-black-hit-of-space who kindly asked for another contribution for his fan mix of the month.
Remix was published there few days ago and now here also.
I used original and instrumental version (both under 4 min) to create this 9:19 min long crossover.

DIANA ROSS-Upside down (Dodi's crossover mix) (1980)

Don't know why and how but my last post misteriously disapeared from here. I made two re-posts and as far as it looks I must do it again. Before I retry here's Diana Ross.
Oh yes, her probably biggest hit without proper extended version. 12'' offers only something above 4 minutes...single ? don't wanna talk about it. For this crossover I used little bit different aproach. Since I couldn't find instrumental version and original with sound quality close enouh to combine, after few attempts I decided to do it from instrumental and acapella versions. I made extended instrumental at first and than I added vocal from acapella. A lot of cutting and adjusting to create this 7:01 min long crossover.

STYLE COUNCIL-Boy who cried wolf (Dodi's crossover mix) (1985)

It's been a long time since I started working on this one....then put it away and finally dig it out to finnish it.
Paul Weller, Mick Talbot, Dee C. Lee and Steve White...only words that I can place by those names are...fantastic, excellent, great, amazing, wonderful etc etc.
Something over 5 minutes version of ''Boy who cried wolf'' came out on their 1985 LP ''Our favourite shop'' (7'' offers standard 3:34 minute long version) and unfortunately that was all.
Official extended or instrumental never came out.
For this crossovers I used album version...results are 3:12 long instrumental and 12 seconds below 9 minutes long...

This is a screenshot made while ''Drive'' was still in process. Like all my crossovers it was donr with Adobe audition and on this screensave you can see Multitrack view with ''Drive'' cutted to pieces and re-arranged. Each of this pieces was manually adjusted. I hope you can get a picture of all the work done.

CARS-Drive (Dodi's crossover mix) (1984)

Back from vacation with a new crossover.
Like other songs from their fantastic ''Heartbeat city'' LP, ''Drive'' unfortunately wasn't officially published in any extended or remix form. After my last post I was kindly asked to try to crossover ''Drive'' and after a lot of work and problems all the way here's the result...6:35 long version of one of the best 80's ballads...

THE CARS-Heartbeat city (Dodi's crossover mix) (1984)

Back to more usual crossover. This time I made some changes on fantastic 1984 track ''Heartbeat city'' from The Cars. LP with same name we can easily call best of The Cars with hits like ''Drive'', ''Hello again'', ''Why can't I have you''...I still can't decide which one is the best. doesn't matter anyway.
For this crossover I used album version only and re-aranged finnishes at 8:50.

JEAN CLAUDE BORELLY-Dolannes melodie (Dodi's crossover mix) (1975)

I was kindly asked to include some more of this oldie, all time instrumentals here and with joy I'll do it.Especially because of one more reason. Hardest to find is instrumental for which you don't know any info. I spend years to dig out melodies I knew all my life simply because I didn't know where to start. Of course, internet makes it much easier these days, but 20...25 years ago when I started collecting all sorts of music, it was much harder.Here's one I made last night. Title was composed by Olivier Toussaint for a french movie ''Un Linceul n'a Pas de Poche'', recorded by Jean Claude Borelly instantly became smash all over Europe. Original is, as you may asume, something over 3 minutes long. I managed to stretch it to 7:14.
