Better...and Twisted By Steven Dowling

For the mixing of the album, co-producer Arthur Baker had an ace up his sleeve in former New Order collaborator/mixer Merv de Peyer.

"Merv was important because we felt that he was so inventive with technology that we would have been foolish to restrict him creatively and we let him just do his thing and 95 per cent of the things he did were kept in," says Johnny Marr.

Cameo - Word Up & Machismo

Machismo - In The Night - featuring Miles Davis

This track represents a high point in Cameo's long and funky recording history.

Miles plays with his characteristic soul-full charm, he sounds very comfortable and at home in this ultra funky setting.  Any fan of Jazz-Funk will be impressed by this meeting of two worlds, and Miles Davis enthusiasts will not be disappointed by the masters minimal approach.
