I haven’t got a single problem, now that I’m with you

New Order – Run 2

This UK single of the Afrika Islam remix of ‘Run’ was limited to only 20,000 copies. Highly sought after. I came across this copy long after it’s release, and it was in rough shape — the glue holding the sleeve together was gone on one side, and someone embossed it with an identifying logo. 🙁

However, the record itself was in great condition, and the mix is pretty good. Essentially the album version with a funky beat overdubbed, but it adds something.

The B-side has two remixes of MTO which, if I had to guess, was a precursor to ‘Fine Time’ as it uses the same sample of Barney and the drum machine pattern is much the same.
