Sheena Easton's "Strut" gets extended for your floor.  And Dan Hartman's "Name Of The Game" gets edited by Raul and Steven.

Sheena Easton is enjoying her strongest EMI-America album to date, entitled "Private Heaven", with "Strut" making waves on dance floors around the world.  Here is a special extended version for you, with extra breaks along the way for even more fun.  Greg Mathieson produced and arranged the original version, which he remixed with Rusty "Endless Music" Garner for the commercial 12" version.

Dan Hartman is next with "Name Of The Game", one of several excellent dance songs from his new MCA album entitled "I Can Dream About You."  Raul and Steven have taken the album version to develop an extended edit which truly showcases the vocal and production expertise of Dan.  The original version was produced by Dan and Jimmy Iovine, and mixed by Dan.

Divine is next with a special Disconet version of "I'm So Beautiful" from the Proto/U.K. 12" commercial version.  The song was written and directed by Mike Stock and Matt Aitken, produced by Pete Waterman and Barry Evangeli and mixed by Barry.  Only Divine could carry this one off with his special style and grace!

The Disconet time machine takes you back to 1977.  And your top tunes sound great mixed by Tom Savarese.

Where were you in 1977?  If you were already born, you probably danced to the 19 great songs put together by Tom Savarese for the 1977 Disconet Top Tune Medley.  (See the listing below, in order of play.)

This great flashback side should be a real plus over the holidays, or anytime you want to throw a little nostaglia at them.  The medley begins with "Disco '77" (the themesong from the syndicated TV series) performed by Sassy and keeps climbing all the way up to "Magic Bird Of Fire" by The Salsoul Orchestra.

It's a great set of music, and should inspire your thinking for the forthcoming 1984 Top Tune Medley.  There's a special place at the bottom of this month's feedback card for you to list your five strongest songs played during 1984 by title and artist.  Your votes will be compiled to develop the 1984 medley which will be coming at you in early 1985.
