ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This CD was conceived by techno mavens Salz as an Anglo-German production exploring different facets of Thomas Dolby's 1981 recording of "One Of Our Submarines".

The original was the B-side of his international hit single "She Blinded Me With Science", and as such it was mainly overlooked by the commercial mainstream.

However, to club goers, fans and electronic music afficianados, it remains one of the stand-out songs of its era.

The sonic layering of the track suggests dark underwater worlds of wartime hell.

Not surprising, seeing as Dolby's uncle (featured in a black and white photo on the CD cover) drowned in a British submarine on manoeuvres late in the Second World War.

"pure genius"

80's classic gets a 21st century makeover!
Arrived in the post this morning. Signed copy to go next to my signed copy of "Forty" ;). Each track is different and since its one of my fav. Dolby tracks, I love it. Hardfloor remix is the best in the club genre. Live track is from Forty, and stands out brillantly. The 12:58 "ricardo villalobos remix" is a little too much / too long. That said, I can recommend it to any Dolby fan. It's just a pity we get so much here and yet only seven tracks from Forty :(
Here's hoping for some new Dolby material ;)

More, please
There's an old musical idea, variations on a theme, which has come around again as 'remixes'. This CD is as good an example as any of how well that can work when the source material is up to it. In the absence of any new material from Mr. Dolby, this is as good as it gets. As long as he's going to hold on to that day job, we'll just have to make do. ;-)

Thomas, your special touch is missed!
The closest I ever got to see TD play was in Cleveland. I had a ticket to see him and the Lost Toy People play on the Aliens Ate My Buick tour, but circumstances caused him to cancel. I have had to settle for the occasional CD and I look forward to each and every release. You may ask if I am really obsessed to purchase a CD totally dedicated to one song...except that each song on this album is a unique and worthy variation. I am delighted to add this disc to my collection, and I refer each person who asks "where did you get that song?" to CD Baby's website. Great site, great stuff, great service and great prices. Keep up the great work.

An excellent trip back to the '80s
This really has brought back good memories of my late teens. A typical album of remixes in the old tradition. This is a CD to be dipped into, don't listen to it all at once or you might spoil the experience. Well worth investing in this if you are a fan of Mr Dolby. Please sir... can we have some more? (what about some of the unpublished stuff?)

DJ Lex

Here's one for the DJs!
In a time when 80s remixes are a dime-a-dozen, this CD really stands out. The interpretations use most of the original parts plus updated beats and gritty analog bass-lines. With 8 different versions, there are plenty of styles to choose from. A must have for Dolby fans and DJs.

--- P.S. - Mr. Dolby: if you read this... release more remixes!

What a wonderful CD!

I am glad I bought this remix CD
One of Our Submarines is one of my favorite songs by Thomas Dolby. I enjoy the original version and now these very interesting remix versions. These remixes prove that a good song will always stand the test of time. This CD is an excellent addition to any Thomas Dolby/80's music/remix collection in general.

I hope Mr.Dolby will do the same with more of his old songs!!!
My favourite tracks are 1,5,6,7 & 8

It rocks.
It's great. If you like OOOS, and remixes, this is totally for you. Very creative efforts from these artists. Excellent for listening or dancing to.

Robert Wright

Very cool interpretations of a classic
I love remixes that draw most elements from the original recording. It's like seeing inside the art of the original artist to hear obscure tracks out of their original contexts, and very satisfying when they're placed in a fresh, exciting setting... This CD does just that, and what a great track to get the treatment! The remixes are long and develop slowly, so be prepared to have a full meal and not just a snack - come hungry and you'll be fulfilled. Don't be surprised, however, if you find, like I did, that your favorite new version is Dolby's live one from his limited pressing CD "Forty". Dolby remains the most sensitive interpreter of his own compositions, and we should be thankful he included us 20 years ago when he blazed down the road he forged to the world of accessible techno-pop.
