Aretha's "Freeway Of Love" gets repaved by Raul.  John Piraino remixes Paul Hardcastle's "19."

Aretha Franklin's "Freeway Of Love" comeback smash on Arista has been an instant hit, and it's wearing very well.  Narada Michael Walden produced, and co-wrote the song with Jeffrey Cohen.  Michael Brauer did the Arista extended remix which was edited by the Latin Rascals, and now Raul adds his special touch with the special Disconet extended extended edit.  And all of this for a pink Cadillac!  It's definitely Aretha, who has gathered 11 grammies and two dozen gold records over the last decade and a half.

Paul Hardcastle's "19" is next, specially edited for this Disconet program by Milwaukee's own John Piraino, director of the Urban Midwest Record Pool.  The Chrysalis single went to #1 in the U.K. in its second week of release, and has been #1 dance here as it continues up the mass-appeal pop chart.  Paul was inspired by the 1982 television documentary "Vietnam Requiem", directed and produced by Jonas McCord and Bill Couterie (who co-wrote "19" with Paul.)

John Piraino found "19" to be such a strong song at his Milwaukee club and on a weekly radio show that he did a special edit.  John has been a DJ since 1975, started Milwaukee's record pool in 1980, and has won several mixing awards.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side A runs 17:00 from 126 BPM (beats per minute) to 119.

Special remixes of Portion Control's "The Great Divide" and Jane Spring's "Love Bites Back" keep 'em hopping!

Two great songs from the U.K. are on this side.  First, it's Portion Control's "The Great Divide", specially re-edited from their Havoc/Rhythmic commercial 12".  The bounce and energy is Yazoo all the way with a fresh touch added.  Pandit Dinesh produced along with the group , who wrote it as well.

And talk about club songs… here is the next B-I-G one from Jane Spring called "Love Bites Back" on M.K.O.  Is Spring a younger Summer?  Her vocals say so, and Phil Harding's production mixed by Tony Atkins are precise and pleasing.  Richard Bull engineered, and Marvin Howell and Jean-Claude Alves were associate producers.  The commercial vocal and instrumental versions have been combined into one special Disconet powerhouse for you.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Side B runs 14:53, from 123 BPM to 135.

Bucks Fizz' "I Hear Talk" gets reedited for your dance floor.  Katrina & The Waves' "Walking On Sunshine" still shines.

Bucks Fizz is from Kent, England, and the title song to their debut RCA album is entitled "I Hear Talk."  A commercial 3-cut EP features an extended remix of this catchy song, which has been substantially rearranged for this Disconet program.  Andy Hill produced and arranged the song, which he co-wrote with Pete Sinfield.  The vocals are reminiscent of the Fifth Dimension, and the group's sparky, light treatment keeps the energy flowing.  Could Bucks Fizz be the next Katrina & The Waves?

Speaking of which… Katrina and The Waves' #1 "Walking On Sunshine" from their Capitol extended remix is next.  Happy music is back!  Katrina and The Waves produced along with Pat Collier, with additional production and mix by Scott Litt in England.  Raul has added his special rhythmic edits which make "Sunshine" last a little longer and stronger on your floor.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 1 runs 13:52, from 110 BPM to 220 BPM.

The classic Viola Wills "If You Could Read My Mind" remixed so eloquently by Peter D. Struve is still fresh.

Viola Wills came to international attention in 1980 with her classic dance cover of Gordon Lightfoot's "If You Could Read My Mind", from Ariola.  Peter D, Struve, who is from San Francisco, did a very eloquent 13 minute remix of the song for Disconet, and soon the public reaction was so strong that U.S. release of the original version was on its way.

Several records later, "Read My Mind" still remains as Viola's strongest effort, and always brings the house down at club appearances whereever she is touring.  This classic summer encore performance side sounds fresh today and should be a nice flashback for your floor.

SPECIAL NOTE TO DJs: Bonus Side 2 runs 13:09 at 125 BPM.
