S.U.F.F.E.R...T.H.E...C.H.I.L.D.R.E.N [McDoC Evo-XR 8185 Mix]

Running Time : 8:43

This is the 1981 Tears for Fears debut single "Suffer The Children" (produced by David Lord) which was later re-recorded and included in their 1983 album "The Hurting" (produced by Chris Hughes & Ross Cullum). The earlier version featured the raw sound of the band as they were just starting to experiment on sequencers and drum machines at that time. After listening to the original version several times, I thought of stretching it a bit further. An Evo-XR treatment was done by mixing the original '81 remix, '81 instrumental and the '85 special promo versions.

I must thank (1) Marcel who posted the long out of print EP (never been available on CD or i-Tunes) on his cool blog; then (2) Analogue, a fellow member from Dirk's forum, for sharing the rare promo version released in 1985.
