    An appropriate choice for today.
    Great tune, verrry disco: perfect for Disco Friday! Recorded at the Sigma Sound Studios in New York, the auxiliary branch of MFSB’s home in Philadelphia.

    I reckon you also have the rare extended version of ‘Got A Feeling’ in your archives too. The ‘Got A Feeling’ album version has been chopped rather ugly back to 3:30 minutes. The extended version should have been the regular album version.

    Sending you belated thanks for this one, Paul. I wish the long version had been included on the Casablanca Records Story box set. Up until now, I assumed the single version was all that existed. (But I should have known better given the record label.)

    I forgot to mention that I love the cover, which was apparently copied to promote the movie Born On The Fourth Of July.
