I've pretty much only been listening to them on vinyl and haven't heard the remasters.
Yeah those old 12inch 45's are sublime
Architecture & Morality takes me back to freshman year in college. Great album!
"Architecture And Morality" for me also. Is the singer still writing songs for boy and girl bands, or has he gone back to OMD full time?
I'm shaking my head here in amazement at all the mention's of Architecture & Morality all of a sudden here on the forum!
Souvenir is one of the best songs for cooling off on a summer night. The 10" of which has a great cover also by Peter Saville.
That 10" mix is one of my favorites by them! I think the mix ended up on CD somewhere but the vinyl sounds very nice.
I can't tell the difference (from memory) between the 10" and cd version. Maybe you're right. Is the lp version shorter?
According to Discogs.com they're the same. But my guess is they just assume they're the same and haven't actually timed the vinyl tracks. The b-side, Motion & Heart is the one that's different from the lp/cd.

Full time OMD since 2007 when he reunited with Paul Humphries and they toured the A+M album. Look for the live dvd/cd from that tour if you are curious. It went so well and they got along, so they went back to the studio and created two excellent albums since then.
They're terrific live at the moment too; saw them earlier in the year. Nothing from "Dazzleships" in the setlist , but all three "Architecture & Morality" singles were included. Highly recommended if they're in your area.
Didn't they play a couple of Dazzle Ships shows at the end of 2014? I wonder if we'll get some Junk Culture shows this year.
