    Thanks for all the Commodores stuff – I’ve been enjoying it.

    Hey Woz U R welcome 🙂 Glad to see you!

    Thanks from me as well. I’ve never heard the remix for this before *BLUSH* but I can’t wait!
    Paul, if you do have and can, I hope you can feature Tina Turner’s Two People and Afterglow here. Two truly under-rated Tina singles and remixes.


    Dan Reply:

    I totally loved “Two People”. That song was underrated for sure and it was another disappointment for me seeing it only get to #30 on the charts in 1987. “Look Me In The Heart” is another example of a great single of hers being overlooked and underrated.


    ric Reply:

    Yeah, shame that Two People didn’t do better. There was also a Ben Liebrand remix that was excellent.
    As for Look Me In The Heart, that is another winner in my books. But again, the 12″ Remix is only found on the 12″.

    Another rare to find 12″ to erase another white spot on the map of 80s music! Thanks
    for this!
