(C45s)Rio/ Hold Back The Rain by Duran Duran

 mp3 availablePlay mp3: Side A | Side B
Label: Capitol 5215 Year: 1983
Picture sleeve included: M-
Condition: M $14.00
Rio/ Hold Back The RainFrom a warehouse find, this is a new, unplayed stock copy, in its original picture sleeve. This single is an interesting case—as well as great music! These tunes were first released on Harvest 5175 in late 1982, and then re-released in 1983 on Capitol, when "Rio" hit #14p in April. What's particularly interesting is that the two singles had two different mixes/edits of each song! The Harvest single had "Hold Back The Rain" on the A side in a shorter edit than the one here (and on the album), and the case for "Rio" was the reverse, with the single an edited version of the 5:33 album track. No matter... both songs represent the best of this U.K. group's early material. IMHO, "Hold Back The Rain" is superior to "Rio," hence the mp3 nugget in the Classic 45's jukebox. Note: The picture sleeve with these copies has a tiny split-seam at the bottom edge but still grade Near Mint.
