As each band probably has at least one toe in each others respective fan-bases (New Order & A Certain Ratio) it is worth noting that ACR's 1990 album MCR was reissued yesterday:

ACR:MCR

- Amazon UK CD
- Amazon UK Double Clear Vinyl

Bernard not only remixed ACR's 'The Big E' single that became 'Won't Stop Loving You' for this LP but also added guest vocals to 'Good Together' along with Shaun Ryder.

A great piece of 90s indie/electro/funk and probably my favourite ACR release, without a doubt. Plus Denise Johnson is all over it with her fab vocals.

I got my copies yesterday and thankfully this is a tasteful, non-brickwalled remastering... louder in all the right places but no distortion. Recommended.

i have the original cd single of 'good together'.

you can barely hear bernard singing on it.

also, the remix that he did for them is pretty average.

your mileage may vary.

I bought the CD single of Won't Stop Loving You back in 1990.It sounded great back then, think there's a radio edit type mix and an extended 6 minute version on the CD but haven't dug it out for years.It'll maybe sound a little dated now.That song and Shack Up are the only A Certain Ratio songs i could name.Oh and maybe Knives Cut Water or whatever it was called. Ashamed to say I've always been a bit lazy when it comes to A Certain Ratio.
