    Finally a quality rip of the Extended Guitar Mix, hooray! And the non-album track too. Always liked this song, At that time I was happy to see this released as a single (the final from the album). Another thank you Paul.

    Thanks for another Tango rip, Paul!
    But I’m in shock about Donna…there was no news about her being sick before.
    Her music will live on!

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I am in shock as well. I had no idea that she was ill. I did wonder though why we had not heard from her. It’s kind of amazing that in these times that her illness did not leak out. I am planning a tribute just not sure when yet. Seems like we are losing all of the greats 🙁

    ric Reply:

    I read she was in the midst of recording a new album and had wanted to complete it. That makes me admire her even more, not making a fuss or publicity stunt out of her illness.
    And yeah, we have lost too many Greats lately.
    A tribute would be excellent Paul, I hope with your planned Donna posts, fellow BTG’ers will all share their love and thoughts about our Queen of Disco. Yours will be the perfect place to make sure her excellent music live on!

    also shocked and saddened to hear of donna summer’s passing…my partner heard on the radio that she believed she got lung cancer as a result of 9/11, that’s why she kept it quiet. will be keeping my eye out for more info. and thanks for the post!

    Hey Paul

    Thanks for the Fleetwood posts, they’ve all come out brilliantly.

    Are you going to finish it all off with Everywhere???

    [Reply]

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hey Con “Everywhere” is the only single from the album that don’t have. Mainly because it was only released as a 12″ in Europe. If and when I do get it I will post it.

    Dejan Reply:

    I got it on CD. A German 12″ 80s collection. But only the Extended Version. I don’t remember it came out in any Dub-version at all. I once owned the 12″ vinyl. However I got rare stuff. 🙂

    Cheers

    Must admit the Tango in the Night remixes are my favourite set of remixes from an LP, all very different and all joyous to listen to and completely unavailable on CD. Thanks for the set Paul, I am most grateful

  13. Jennifer Says:

    Marry me, Paul! lol

    I can’t thank you enough for all the awesome Stevie Nicks and Fleetwood Mac you’ve posted! I’ve been a big Stevie fan for a long time and used to have all these singles in both vinyl and digital form. I lost them all in a fire in January and was fretting over getting them back together.

    You’re simply amazing and I totally love you. lol

    Thanks again so very much much!

    I absolutely love the ‘extended guitar mix.’ It has been a favorite of mine since the day it came out. Stevie’s extra vocals on this mix are smokin’ hot, so so sexy. Thanks Paul!
