The Thompson Twins had a major chart run in the 1980s with no less than 7 top 40 hits. It was the decade of Megamixes and the Thompsons had a series of 3 "Out Of The Gap" Megamixes that I know of.

There was the "Out Of The Gap" (Extended Megamix) on the flipside of the "Sister Of Mercy" (Extended Mix) - this one was about 9 mins long and has recently appeared on CD.

Then there was the "
Out Of The Gap" (Single Megamix) that was 6:30 mins long and appeared on the flipside of "Sister of Mercy" 7" - this one has not been on CD.

Lastly, there was the "
Out Of The Gap" (Edited Megamix) which appeared on the oddly shaped space glider picture disc (as shown above) which was on the flipside of a remix of "Sister Of Mercy" 7" - this edited Megamix is the one for download here. It goes about 5 mins.

This 5 min Megamix contains:

In The Name Of Love
Love On Your Side
Doctor Doctor
We Are Detective
Into The Gap
Hold Me Now
