Hi all, a question for UK-based DM veterans who've been into them since the 80s, are there any round here..? :)
Today marks the 30th anniversary of the release of Enjoy The Silence - but if I remember rightly, didn't Mute used to stagger the releases over a period of weeks? With Personal Jesus, I'm certain they released just the 12" to begin with, then the 7" the following week, then the CD the week after that, and then the remix variants after that. I'm sure they did the same with all the singles off Violator and, when ETS first came out, it was just the 12" (and maybe the CD too), I'm certain the 7" came out a week later...
Does anyone else remember the same thing?
