The Art of the 12 inch (2CD)

Format: CD
Cat. No.: SALVODCD213
Barcode: 698458821324
Playing Time: 2h 30m

From the original house of 12” excess, Zang Tuum Tumb, Trevor Horn and his Robot Orchestra present over 150 minutes of blockbusters, rarities, vanities and mysteries. Trevor’s team at Sarm West studios worked overtime in the 80s, pumping out highly creative reworkings of their finest productions at an incredible rate.

The Art of the 12" is only the third compilation from ZTT Records, following the highly collectible Sampled (1986) and Zance (1994). It contains 22 classic, rare and unreleased 12" remixes from the ZTT vaults.  Add seven avant-garde interludes - or microremixes - and that’s 29 tracks in total. It’s a treasure trove for fans of the label and its biggest acts (Frankie Goes To Holly wood, Propaganda, Art of Noise , 808 State…), as it contains some of their rarest and most accomplished remixes.
