Stand & Deliver vs Take On Me
a-ha - Take On Me
Adam & The Ants - Stand & Deliver [single version]

80s nostalgia website, RememberTheEighties.com ran an online poll to find out the best 80s song. After elminating many classics in earlier rounds, only two tracks remained. Stand & Deliver and Take On Me. This inspired Carty to produce a mashup when he sent to the site owner. The sleeve was designed by Ant Lady to match the design of the website.

2. Adam & The Ants - Lou Reed Dive (Dance) [Demo 9 Remix]
[06:02]

Electric Light Orchestra - Roll Over Beethoven
Chuck Berry - Roll Over Beethoven
Adam & The Ants - Lou Reed Dive (Dance) [demo]

For this cheeky little remix, Carty laid brand new drums over the top of Adam's drum machine, added the intro to E.L.O.'s Roll Over Beethoven, and a few guitar licks from Chuck Berry's version. The really unfortunate thing about this mix, is that the bass playing on Adam's demo is very low in the mix.

This remix (along with a few others) was dug out of the Carty archives to complete this final volume of the Carty Mixes.

When Justin Swan (a.k.a. Red Scab) was running the official website at adam-ant.net, he approached Carty to create a 30 second collage of Ant tracks for a proposed new intro for the site. Although a lot of work went into the preparation of the mix, the project was shelved and Justin eventually handed the site over to Michael Sanderson (a.k.a. Monk).

So the mix remained unfinshed for a few years until Carty did something with it so he could included on this volume. There are 15 Ant tracks featured, all from each of Adam's musical eras, which which the original premise for the idea.

Jason Mraz - I'm Yours
Jason Mraz - I'm Yours [acoustic version]
Adam & The Ants - 'Antmusic' [drums only]
Adam & The Ants - Kings Of The Wild Frontier [drums only]

When Carty first heard this track (from a suggestion by Tex), he thought the burundi drums would fit perfectly with it. So he added the drums from Kings and the beat from 'Antmusic' and the result is what you hear now.

Carty had sent the mix to Tex for her opinion, and she felt it needed something more. Carty had no idea what else to do with, so it lay untouched ever since.

Adam Ant - Headgear [album version]
James Brown - Funky Drummer [bonus beats]
Adam Ant - Wonderful [Bob Clearmountain's Unedited Mix]
Adam Ant - Beautiful Dream [single version]

Carty had always intended to re-do his first ever remix, Wonderful [Funky Remix] from Carty Mixes Volume 1. So he ended up adding the opening synths from Headgear (from the unreleased Persuasion album) and mixing in Beautiful Dream. Again, it sat in the archives for a while, until he dusted it down for this final volume.

This is a recreation of a live mix Carty performed at the Ant Lib Disco in 2007 (or was it 2008?). He only did an hour spot, but this new version has been reduced down to just 40 minutes. Which means Carty probably filled the other 20 minutes with (other non-mixed) Ant tunes, unfortunately, he can't remember!

This aptly named mix features some cheeky samples from Hound Dog and Woo-Hoo and is carried along, with the help of the drums from Dog Eat Dog and Goody Two Shoes. The part where Wonderful is mixed in sounds a bit dodgy, but apart from that, a reasonable effort.
