    Point to the Brits for the right order of singles released from Rock A Little.
    They went with this first (and it became Stevie’s very first UK chart entry) and then Talk To Me.
    US went the other way round.
    I like Talk To Me, but just felt it lacked the energy and urgency for a lead single. I’m sure I Can’t Wait would’ve cracked the Billboard Top 10 had it been released first.
    Also, Stevie would not have needed to share it’s namesake with Nu Shooz in the Top 40.
    The week Stevie peaked at #16 with her song, Nu Shooz is at #33, and would later be a much bigger hit.
    So glad to have these excellent Rock Remixes now “BTG-ripped”. Thanks Paul!

    Possessive Love is another 12″ whose remix I’ve yet to hear, only have the 7″ but not 12″.

    Probably I’m wrong on this,but was the right name “Tom”,wasn’t it? I mean,Tom Lord-Alge,and not Chris.I always heard [and konwn] of Tom.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Hi Piffaed Chris Lord-alge is correct. Here is his Discogs page: http://www.discogs.com/artist/Chris+Lord-Alge

    ric Reply:

    Tom and Chris are brothers and both awesome sound engineers and sometimes remixers.

    I’m very new to internet, I can not imagine how he did to get a direct link to the file that does not even appear in the source code of the page, unless advertised direct link to the post. In that case I think he’s stupid enough to do it aside.
    Thanks for your time and energy.
