Propaganda a secret wish 25th anniversary deluxe edition disc 1 full album reissue


A Secret Wish is the debut album of German synthpop band Propaganda. Released by ZTT Records in 1985, it was produced by Stephen Lipson under the supervision of label boss Trevor Horn. The singles "Duel" and "Dr. Mabuse" were both Top 30 UK chart hits. The track "p:Machinery" (a line from which gives the album its title) was also released as a single and was featured in an episode of the '80s TV show Miami Vice and also on the video "Drum" by Duran Duran's Simon Le Bon for his Whitbread Round the World Race in 1985.

The album was followed up quickly in November 1985 by the Wishful Thinking companion remix album.

A Secret Wish has been reissued a number of times through the years – including as a deluxe 20th anniversary edition and as a multi-channel SACD. The most recent re-release is the 2010 double CD deluxe edition which marks the album's 25th anniversary.

"Dream Within A Dream" has the lyrics of the poem "A Dream Within A Dream" by Edgar Allan Poe. "Sorry for Laughing" is a Josef K cover. "The Last Word" is an instrumental based on "Dr. Mabuse". "Strength To Dream" is the opening line from "Dream Within A Dream". On the sleeve and label, "Jewel" and "Duel" were listed as a single track, whereas "The Last Word" and "Strength to Dream" were separate.

Original 1985 CD release

  1. "Dream Within A Dream" [extended] – 09:09
  2. "The Murder Of Love" – 5:12
  3. "Jewel" – 6:22
  4. "Duel" [CD remix] – 4:42
  5. "Frozen Faces" – 4:25
  6. "p:Machinery" [single mix] – 3:51
  7. "Sorry for Laughing" – 3:27
  8. "The Chase" – 4:04
  9. "Dr Mabuse" [CD remix] – 10:41

"Jewel" is the 'cut rough' 12-inch (vocal) mix, with the opening seconds replaced by the album intro. "Duel" has minor changes within the mix, as does "p:Machinery", appearing here as the single mix. The version of "Dr Mabuse" here is the first 12-inch mix ('Das Testaments des Mabuse'), with the final minute replaced by the end of "The Last Word/Strength to Dream" from the original LP.

The three-month delay between the vinyl and CD releases gave producer Steve Lipson the opportunity to remix the album to his satisfaction, and he said that he considered the CD to be the definitive version.

The original US release contained the UK CD in a longbox. Several years later, a US printing was done that had the vinyl tracks but mislabeled with the original UK CD artwork. Most subsequent reissues featured a hybrid track listing, following the vinyl for the most part, but with the addition of the longer vocal "Jewel" and "Frozen Faces".
