    I’d really like to hear the “Over 18 mix” of “I Owe You Nothing.” Just want to see how they managed to stretch that out to 18 minutes.

    • Michael says:

      The “Over 18 Mix” consists of several different versions put into one. It includes two Pettibine mixes, the Ric Wake version, an acapella and a bootleg. That’s their trick for stretchung it ;-)

  3. Kiefer2 says:

    I believe the “Over 18″ Mix is actually a medley-not an 18 minute version of “I Owe You Nothing”.

  4. Mike says:

    And to think even with two discs, there are still remixes missing. Valiant effort though.

    hey Paul!
    does this Bros reissue comes with a booklet?
    if so, any good?
    & more importantly how’s the sound quality?
    thanks Paul! SDE rocks!!!

    • Paul Sinclair says:

      Yes it does come with a booklet, and it is good – even if I say so myself – because I wrote the sleeve notes :) Haven’t listened to it yet, but I think it was remastered by Andy Pearce, so should be fine.

    @Richard John – I’m not a Bros fan, but bought the Over 18 mix not so long ago out of intrigue. It’s true that it is basically a bunch of different mixes edited together, but it’s done very well and flows as one (very long) piece. A nice touch is that the b-side is a silent groove and the label just states “NOTHING”.

    Hi Paul,

    I found two mistakes in the booklet!
    1) I owe you nothing had 4 different sleeves for the 7″ vinyl in 1988!
    (1. Craig, 2. Luke, 3. Matt and 4. all of them together)
    2) The CD debut of the “Over 18 Mix was in 1988 on a 3″CD from Japan!

    Can you tell me who compiled and mastered this Box?
    I can’t find any Infos in the booklet.

    “Excellent” package. Right from the start my disc 2 i disc3 is scratched. Thanks on nothing, Cherry Red.

    After hearing the second CD, I have bad news. As some of us, here, were afraid of, ‘The Beats’ version and the ‘Pettibeats’ versions of IOU are…THE SAME!!!! Not even the late ‘Whooo!’ we can hear on the promo 12″ on the Pettibeats version is here, so we have TWICE the exactly same version on the same CD, with just two tracks between them. A BIG shame, unforgivable and really hard to explain on a release like this, where it seems that there was real care around the making of it…how can things like this happen? Nobody with an intent ear listened to ALL the different tracks at first, and to the complete thing later, to prevent mistakes like this to happen? I still can´t believe how a negligence like this can ruin an otherwise really nice release :( . So bad…

    Agreed, it absolutely beggars belief.
