Chris Cox Remix Promo Sleeve
Chris Cox Remix Promo Sleeve

I have already said previously that my passion is collecting our favourite singer’s CDs from around the world.  I also like to collect promos of her releases.  We are all aware that Decca signed for the rights to release her last album ‘Get The Party Started‘ worldwide with the exception of the UK where it was released by her record company Lock, Stock and Barrel Records.  To promote it’s release in the USA Decca commissioned the title track to be remixed by Chris Cox and also Soundscape.  These mixes were available to download and people were able to hear them.

What doesn’t generally seem known is that there are two other Chris Cox mixes of ‘GTPS’ which were done.  They were the ‘Party Mix’ and ‘Drunk + Disorderly Version’.  These were available on a promo with the Soundscape mixes but have sadly never been made available commercially.  A few copies of this promo have appeared on eBay but have been very expensive and have mostly gone to American collectors.  I was lucky to be able to get a copy of this promo and the scan of the sleeve can be seen above. 

To give you an idea of the mixes, here are some low quality samples:

Party Mix…

Drunk + Disorderly Version…

And here is a video remix of the fabulous Soundscape remix…
