The first Grandmix (1983) was originally named ‘MonsterMix’.
During the first broadcast in 1983 the second tape turned out to be empty (the mix was divided over two tapes). As a quick replacement, side A of the High Fashion Mix Album by Ben Liebrand was used. One week later the mix was broadcasted as intended, but shortened due to time restriction.

This is ALMOST* the “Directors Cut” (from a later broadcast on Radio 538 in 1999). Tracks 69 to 74 were in the original mix, but not broadcasted in 1983. Some tracks were removed from this “Directors Cut” by Ben Liebrand. Nina Hagen – Zarah, Michael Jackson – Beat it, Michael Sembello – Maniac, (and a few more). Ben Liebrand states; “Believe me, nothing worth keeping is lost here as these extra tracks were only in the mix to make sure it was at least one full hour”.
*Track 58 (Depeche Mode – Get The Balance Right!) had to be cut out for “possible global viewing”.
