So, I’m listening to the Rockline radio show with Sam and Mike from 1995 and Sammy says that the band wasn’t happy with the mix for “Take Me Back” that was originally released on Balance, so they remixed the track and replaced the original version on all future pressings of the Balancee CD. Has anyone checked this out and is the mix noticeably different? I just ordered a new copy of Balance (since I only have the original CD from the date it was released) for my own listen.

For anyone interested, here is the interview. The segment about the remix starts at 22:29.

I also only have the release day version, I’m interested to know if the other sounds noticeably different too. Actually one of my favorites on this album.

My new copy is arriving today, so I’ll let you know.

It appears there are some very subtle differences by looking at the wav files opened in Audacity, but I don’t really hear much difference. Then again, my hearing is pretty beat to hell. I sent the files to Ron to see what the magic 8 ball sees.

The files you sent me are 100% identical as far as I can tell.

I took one of the tracks, inverted it, and then mixed it into the other track, and it came out as 100% silence. ie, no differences.

Another myth busted!

The interview makes it sound like they did the remix, and intended to get it out to the public, so I wonder what happened to it.

Maybe a question for that “other half” instagram thing Mike and Sam are doing these days…
