Duran Duran

The Medicine is an unofficial Duran Duran compilation album, released in Luxembourg by Midnight Beat during 1995.

About the album Edit

The album features a collection of Duran Duran unreleased tracks, recorded during demo sessions in 1988 for the Big Thing album.

The compilation also includes two early rough versions of "A View to a Kill" performed by the five original band members in 1985, plus an instrumental version of "Bomb" which is also known as "Capitol Chill".

"I Believe" is a musical piece which is part of the song/medley "I Believe" / "All I Need to Know". This track also comprises the main instrumental part of the song "All I Need to Know". The song/medley didn't make it on to the Big Thing album and was instead used as the B-side on the 1988 single "All She Wants Is".

"I Am The Medicine" are lyrics that feature in Simon Le Bon's solo song "Follow In My Footsteps", recorded during May 1988 at the Davout Studios, France. This was the same time the Big Thing album was also being recorded at the studios.
