Hi all

where can i get a *complete discography* of The Golden Hour of The Future releases?

on and wikipedia they only have the orginal abum and the sampler Ep, although I seem to have in my own collection a 10 track "sampler" album which includes 5 different versions of Dance Like a Star .. but I can't remember where I got it from.

Apart from the album, and possibly the album sampler, there was a limited 'Dance Like a Star' 12".

I meant the 'digital download only' edition which is mentioned here:

and also here (read the small print!): - under the Rock n Roll / Dance Like A Star section.


Further query:

I was wondering about "Dancevision" from the Rock n Roll single, which was always stated as being recorded "as The Future" : so was this (final) version the same as it ever was or was it 'upgraded' in some way in 1980, and if so does and original version exist somewhere?

..sorry to be an anorak.

Here's what I wrote about Dancevision on Blind Youth, if it helps:

This instrumental was recorded by both The Future and The Human League, although it's likely that both versions feature only Martyn and Ian.
Although it was about seventy-five seconds longer than the League's version, the Future version is otherwise very similar, using the same basic melodies and rhythm. When released on the Holiday '80 singles, the League's version was listed on the record sleeve as "recorded opposite Kelvin Flats, Sheffield on budget Sony 2-track Nov 77 by Ian + Martyn as The Future".
Future version unreleased
Human League version released on the 'Human League cassette', Holiday '80 (double single and single), Travelogue (CD only), the Canadian 12" of The Sound Of The Crowd and In Darkness (unofficially)
