If I recall correctly I ended up with this particular CD as part of one of the many hauls I picked up in 2018. Sadly however I don’t remember which, for I ended up becoming quite swamped in the format this year and so many of these wonderful promotional CD’s sat under my bed gathering dust.
Luckily for all of us a kind Discogs contributor can shed some light in that this CD was given away with Carling Premier lager to promote their Unique Smooth Chill System. This unique system is explained in the short booklet included with the CD as being Smoother and Creamier.
As a compilation the selection here isn’t terrible, however a bit meagre with only 8 tracks; although they are all original recordings.
- Gary Numan – Cars (The Premier Mix)
- The Human League – Love Action (I Believe In Love)
- Heaven 17 – Temptation
- Spandau Ballet – Chant No1 (I Don’t Need This Pressure On)
- Re-Flex – The Politics of Dancing
- Tubeway Army – Are ‘Friends’ Electric?
- Culture Club – Time (Clock of the Heart)
- Scritti Politti – Wood Beez (Pray Like Aretha Franklin)
