We are of course talking about the remixed versions of the song “Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five” from Paul McCartney. The versions have all been remixed by Finnish remixer Timo Maas and Canadian James Teej. This edition is still limited, they say – but we haven’t heard any figures as to how small this edition is.
Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five – Original mix (6:01)

Radio edit was available in just 100 copies from a London record store in May, whereas the other two mixes were out on a previous 12″ white label single which was limited to 300 copies only, in April. The new edition is released by Virgin Records in the U.K.

The original version of this song is of course to be found on the “Band On The Run” album of Paul McCartney & Wings from 1973, and Paul still plays his version of the song live in concerts. Paul has uploaded a music video for the Radio Edit mix:
The scenes of Paul miming to the song are from Wings’ “One Hand Clapping” documentary (1974).
