    I adore these brilliant obscurities that you find and share! These “in-betweens” really do constitute what was going on in Pop culture at the time, more than the big hits typically do. 🙂

    I’m with Marty on this one Paul. I crave these ultra-rarities that you present, especially from the New Wave genre. I can’t wait to here this one. You are so much more than “the hits” and the tired and typical. You are beyond brilliant in what you do.

    Wow Paul!!! I played this just now and saved the John Luongo remix for last. Man, this is what a remix can do to an already good song: Make It All The More Fantastic!!! Luongo was a genius!! I so miss 80’s remixes. There was always integrity paid to the original version, but they somehow made it better. Arthur Baker, Shep and Jellybean along with the remix services took the science of remixing and elevated it to high art. Thanks for “gifts” like these records Paul. You make Christmas seem like an everyday occurrence. God Bless you for that and more!!
