Hangin' on a string (Frankie Knuckles remix) - Loose Ends

Within a couple of weeks, I spotted this remix version of 'Hangin' on a string' on television, and then bought the single during a holiday in London. The remix by Frankie Knuckles was released in 1992, seven years after the original version made its mark in the singles charts in the UK and the Netherlands.

This remix version didn't trouble the charts in the Netherlands, but still made a very respectable no. 25 in the UK.

My collection: 7" single no. 2688
Found: Beanos, East Croydon, London, July 3, 1996
Cost: 2 pounds
Tracks: 'Hangin' on a string (Frankie Knuckles remix)' / 'Hangin' on a string (Original 7" mix)'

Hangin' on a string - Loose Ends

Loose Ends formed in 1980 in London, with members Carl McIntosh, Jane Eugene and Steve Nichol. They achieved their first success with 'Hangin' on a string (Contemplating)' in 1985, which reached number 13 in the UK singles chart. It was also a minor hit in the Netherlands, reaching number 32 in the Dutch Top 40.

I've had the single for years, but it was only today that I saw the 12" single for a reasonable price. It was worth buying: the extended version of the track makes it even more enjoyable than the original.

My collection: 12" single no. 490
Found: Kringloop Holland, Den Haag, March 3, 2009
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'Hangin' on a string (Contemplating) (extended dance mix)' / 'A little spice'
