Giorgio Moroder – Chase (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on September 10th, 2012



“Chase” is an electronic instrumental by Italian synth-pioneer Giorgio Moroder from the Academy Award-winning soundtrack and film Midnight Express (1978). In January 1979 “Chase” peaked at #33 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Although originally branded as disco, the song is considered to be, along with Donna Summer’s “I Feel Love”, a pioneer of the HI-NRG genre that came to prominence in the early 1980s. For the 12″ single the song was extended to an epic thirteen minutes and reached #31 on the US Dance Charts.The music was arranged by Giorgio Moroder with Harold Faltermeyer.

This 12″ is a special one-sided single.

    This 13 minute version can not be found on CD. It’s been re-issued on vinyl but never CD. So glad to be able to hear it in this quality. Thank You!

    I didn’t know there was longer version of this great tune.
    Sounds super, like all Giorgio’s work.
    Thank you very much Paul!


  8. Mike Says:

    From a mailinglist I got the following link:
    Of course the downloadlimit is already reached, but he gave another
    downloadlink via Zippyshare and guess what: in the ID-Tag I read
    the address of this site. It’s the same file (including original ID-Tag)
    as the above link.
    I think this is the best compliment you can get: the original artist
    is using your remastered version at his own website!
    It’s still a great track and thank you very much for the excellent digital
    version from this track (not available on CD)!
