The Frankie factory

The complete catalogue of Frankie Goes To Hollywood—if youve got the lot you can relax!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into your record shops, along came Frankie with this years two biggest singles ‘Relax and ‘Two Tribes. But those discs have got more going for them than just platinum sales.

Between the pair of them there are no less than 15 official versions in the shops. Now heres your chance to check your collection against the official No. 1 list. How many have you got?

  • 7" picture disc
  • 12" 5-minute mix
  • 12" 8-minute mix
  • 12" 16½-minute mix
  • 12" picture disc

In addition to this lot, the video version of ‘Two Tribes features the voice of ex-President Richard Nixon at the beginning—something none of the other versions have. And theres yet another mix of ‘Two Tribes on the ‘Now Thats What I Call Music 3' LP.

Oh, and on top of that lot theres been a whole series of promotion-only items, including a 12" ‘Relax/Two Tribes double A-side. Unfortunately most of these have only been available to DJs, but if youve still got more money than sense you can pick up a 7" copy of ‘Relax (The Last Seven Inches) from Stiff/Island Mail Order, 22 St Peter Square, London W6 for a mere four quid.
