12 Inches of Love: INXS Edition

My love for '80s 12-inch singles knows no bounds, and I think INXS was an absolute master of the extended mix. My two favorite pieces of wax from the Aussies are the 1983 four-track EP called 'Dekadance' and the 1985 extended version of "What You Need". Take a gander at these tracklistings. These 'Shabooh Shoobah' cuts on 'Dekadance' never sounded so good. I can assure you this will not be the band's last visit.
