  11. woz Says:

    This is one of my favorites! “Kiss and Tell” is another good song, but not sure if it has any mixes. Thanks so much 🙂


  12. ron Says:

    As always, Paul, you are the best! Thank you….


  13. Jeff Says:

    Another discovery for me Paul and I can’t thank you enough. I was familiar with their “Right On Track” single, but this one I like even more. Plus, it’s a Shep mix too and the dub is epic with cool edits towards the end and the emulator solo which was such a staple in 80’s dance records. Again, you come to the rescue with the B-sides which the labels ignore most of the time in their re-issues of singles on CD. You are a perfect person DPT!! Many thanks and deep adoration.



    Franco Reply:

    I agree with Jeff,
    Many thanks for your effort to share this beautiful treasure



  14. David Says:

    Thank you so much for this! Waiting for a decent digital version for years – if you could ever get around to the other two singles, I’d die happy. Didn’t they also have a song on a soundtrack around that time that has only ever been available on vinyl?


  15. Brad Says:

    One of my favorites- never had a decent copy. Thanks a million for this!


  16. Carl Says:

    Such an awesome track. This Shep Pettibone remix is one of the best ones he ever made.

    Thank you so much Paul!!


  17. Francisco Says:

    muchas gracias….grandes recuerdos


  18. Douglas Kelly Says:


    Would you happen to have access to the Right On Track 12″ by Breakfast Club that you could upload. The one I used to have (MCA-23687) had 7 different versions on it. I can’t find it anywhere in digital form.


  19. woz Says:

    I’m listening to your rip again tonight and loving it! Thanks a million, DJPaulT 😎
