In the 80’s TSR also released exclusive extended mixes of dance hit singles, sometimes in retro 70’s type sleeves with nude models. Over the next four days, four of the best TSR remixes will be posted including hits by Aleem, Sheryl Lee Ralph and Le Foxxe but first we have Donna Allen.

    • Yes, all tracks from the same German 12″ but sometimes I take the track lengths from Discogs which can often be wrong, 5:35 is the original long version which is on the the US 12″ (posted previously), this will be the original 7″ mix, album version was a little longer at 4:02, thanks for pointing out the error EV
