Patrick Cowley extended remix.  Nanette Garcia produced by Boris Midney.

Patrick Cowley's "Megatron Man" album on Megatone continues to pack floors with just about any selection.  We're pleased to present an exclusive extended remix of "Thank God For Music", written by Patrick and sung so sweetly by those Accapello Gold Patrick Cowley singers.  The song now runs 7:20, with a longer introduction and some nice breaks along the way.

Next, it's Nanette Garcia, produced by Boris Midney.  Nanette was an honor student at the Julliard School of Music, and has been performing at various New York area clubs.  "Don't Turn Your Back On Me" was written by Boris and Kathryn Meyer, and produced as only Boris can with the lush, clear sounds of Eras Studios' 64 tracks.

Be sure to check out that very hot break about two-thirds of the way through!

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 13:34, beginning at 122 BPM and then slip-cueing into Nanette at a very energetic 110 BPM.

Chris Rainbow, Alphonze Mouzon remixed and Time Bandits.

Here is a wonderfully laid-back side for the early hours.  It begins with Chris Rainbow's "Body Music", from EMI in Holland.  Chris wrote and produced, and there is also a very unusual video of "Body Music" floating around Europe.

Next, a special edit of one of the classiest recording sessions ever.  "I'm Glad That You're Here" was written and produced by Alphonze Mouzon, and after its U.S. release on Pausa some months ago, the production has begun to catch on via its European release on London.  The vocal and instrumental versions, mixed by Dennis Weinrich, were combined into one version here.  Now… listen to those instruments and vocals.  Superb!  Only the best here… the Seawind horn section, Lee Rittenour on guitar, Herbie Hancock on keyboards, Hubert Laws on flute, Freddie Hubbard on flugel horn, Michael Brecker on tenor sax, and The Waters (Julia and Maxine) singing.  No wonder!  Alphonze knows who to call in for a session.

Time Bandits complete the side with "Live It Up."  Their CBS/Holland 12" was written by Alides "Hollywood Seven" Hidding, and the record demonstrates that very hip street sounds can be produced anywhere the right people lay down the right song.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 16:15, building slightly from 110 BPM to 115 BPM.

The Human League gets a special Raul remix.

The Human League has become one of the most interesting groups from England in a long time.  Produced by Martin Rushent, the group has several album and 12" single releases on Virgin in England.

Raul has combined their "Don't You Want Me" vocal and instrumental songs with "Do Or Die", one of several album cuts.  The result is a 15 minute suite to help you get your floor into The Human League groove.

While the instrumental versions are a trip well worth taking by themselves, the vocals are pleasing and have carefully-crafted, meaningful lyrics.  Raul has provided a nice balance between the two, with some answering and the specially edited breaks which Raul has become famous for.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 15:34, building slightly from 120 BPM to 123 BPM.

Prissy's "World Class Lover" and Central Line's "Don't Tell Me."

Prissy's "World Class Lover" was written and produced by William Smith.  Let's face it… there's class, there's first class, and best of all, there's world class.  You can't get any better than that.  The simple hook is effective, and that Prophet 5 keeps the lead line jumping throughout.  Mark Berry engineered the remix.

Central Line is next with "Don't Tell Me."  Roy Carter produced with the group at Nova, engineered by Pete Smith.  Greg Walsh mixed at Utopia, and the tracks were edited to work with the previous song.  Their European 12" on Mercury (b/w "Shake It Up") should become of immediate interest to U.S. DJs, as "Don't Tell Me" is such a strong club followup to "Walking Into Sunshine."

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 12:02, from 112 to 114 BPM.
