Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Two Tribes - Rare Version
This is a rare intermediate demo of the classic 80s tune Two Tribes, and features elements of the final release of the song combined with some really interesting parts you may possibly never have heard before, and which never made it to the final studio mix. Produced by Trevor Horn and released at the height of the 1980's cold war era, Two Tribes was Frankie Goes To Hollywood's second No.1 single in the UK and remains in the Top 30 all-time best-selling singles chart. However, the Livepool band's best-selling single was the controversial Relax, which was famously banned by the BBC after DJ Mike Read discovered that the song featured rather rude lyrics - Tee, hee. Frankie say enjoy!
