BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1985

A. Front

“Let’s Go All the Way” is a song by American group Sly Fox. Released as a single in December 1985 from their debut studio album of the same name, the record entered the Billboard chart on December 28 and went Top 10 in both the U.S. and the UK. Despite receiving considerable commercial and critical success, the group failed to match expectations with their later singles, and are sometimes referred to as a one-hit wonder.

When released, the song was a top 10 hit in the US, peaking at number seven, after reaching number three in the UK Singles Chart earlier in the year. AllMusic notes that “the song’s oddball mix of hip-hop, Latin pop, disco, and new wave, crossed radio formats, from R&B to Top-40 to ‘Rock of the ‘80s’ stations ruled by the Smiths and the Cure.” On the strength of the single’s multiformat success, the band’s album hit the Top 40 in two formats as well, peaking at number 31 on the Top 200 Albums chart and at number 34 on the Top R&B Albums chart.

Released for the Europen market The ‘Multi-Mix’ remix by Les “Mix Doctor” Adams of DMC contains samples of “We Will Rock You” by Queen and “A Fly Girl” by Boogie Boys.

    Have to agree with Stefano, 1985 – looking at that # make me feel like I’m getting old…so long ago, yet still seems like yesterday sometimes in my memories. I saw this duo perform live in 1985 on tour with Kool & the Gang and Ready For the World. At that particular time Oh Sheila had just hit #1 for RFTW so the entire show had quite a electric feel to it. I think I remember the guys from Sly Fox mentioning that they were featured in a Levi’s commercial and were offered a recording contract after that. Anywqay, nice selection Paul. I am very happy you did this specific version of the release.

    Ouch Paul!! You end the week on a very high note for me!! I LOVE this song. Those HUGE BEATS!! Love the “Diamond Dub Mix” because of the edits by Charlie Dee Diaz and Chep Nuñez and Omar Santana!! And speaking of edits, I have to say your Burning The Ground site has showcased marvelous 12-inch dance discs with incredible edits on them. I’m a die hard EDITHEAD and I really appreciate these razor blade cut and splice extravaganzas. Not that this mix is over-the-top machine gun insanity, but, as a completest, I crave these lost mixes. And nobody does it to your standard of stellar rip-ness (if that’s a term). The song still sounds fresh and thrilling. Thanks Paul for such an unexpected delight. You rock again and again and AGAIN!!

    Enjoy Your Weekend!

    Ooo-Whee!! Paul, that “Multi-Mix” is Multi-Orgasmic!! I so love these “kitchen-sink mixes” where everything, but the kitchen sink is thrown in! Loved the Queen samples and “Fly Girl” by The Boogie Boys. Great creativity here. Ah, those were the days when sampling ran rampant through mixes. It reminded me so much of the Old WKTU radio station out of NYC when they had top DJ’s do custom music mixes. Such immense fun. Thanks Paul for uncovering this gem.

    You wanna hear sampling run rampant?…check out any of the Milli Vanilli mixes. Sure, the group has since become a joke, but the beats and mixes were slammin’. Girl You Know It’s True and Baby Don’t Forget My Number had like 30+ samples in each mix if you listened carefully.

    Jeff Reply:

    Fred,

    I hear you about the Milli Vanilli Mixes. I have them too. Yes, I am obsessed with very, very, VERY GOOD samples and edits. And yes, the ultimate edits are on three of the Sweet Sensation records: “Hooked On You”; “(Goodbye Baby)Victim of Love”; “Take It While It’s Hot”

    These are like the holy trinity of edit mixes done by O-O-O-OH-OH-OH-Omar Santana. Somehow, Mr. Santana was a full concentration of the Latin Rascals’ DNA mixed on steroids. The man could edit like a frenzy. Every time I played these songs, I could swear my stylus and speakers would be foaming like a rabid dog. They are/were/always INTENSE. Glad you love these things too.

    We could write a book here but I will leave you with my vivid memories of the Latin Rascals edits/mixes…just superb and I am part of the .0001% of the music listening population that appreciated them (and Santana)! I also enjoyed when Santana remixed for X-Mix…hopefully you remember his contributions on X-Mix. 🙂 I think I actually like most Dub mixes better than any of the actual “remixes” that contained the full vocals.

    Jeff Reply:

    Fred, it’s great to have someone fully appreciate multi-edits like what the Latin Rascals and Omar Santana did. That’s why DjPaulT is so important, because he’s preserving these mixes with his vinyl rips along with the full mixes/remixes contributors. Very few of the mixes I love have never wound up on compact disc, and sometimes, when they do, the liner notes don’t give them any credit. When Duran Duran released their singles box sets, the names of Omar Santana and Carlos Berrios were not even listed in the track’s information. This is such a crime in my opinion. These pioneers need to be honored for their contribution to dance music and its culture. So happy you know these guys’ works. I love Omar’s works for the X-Mix remix service. The man is INSANE!! And I mean this as a huge, respectful compliment. And Tony Moran and Albert Cabrera (The Latin Rascals) these guys are like the main inspiration to all of the other Edit Kings out there. There legacy and names need to be known, archived and saluted.

    It’s so nice to have a fan of Edits and crazy dub mixes here on Burning The Ground. Paul has created a rather remarkable place where so many of us can come together as one and share our passions.

    Cheers to DjPaulT!!!

    Then can we assume you will post some Cover Girls mixes and dubs very, very, very soon? 🙂 Hooked On You and Take It While It’s Hot had mesmerizing dubs…check them out on youtube…if you truly like hard/big edits, you will be blown away by those 2 songs’ mixes.

    I meant Sweet Sensation…not Cover Girls…too bad this site doesn’t have an EDIT button. 🙂

    Back in the days before digital transfer of music to lossless audio or mp3 was possible, a friend of mine who did part time DJ work got a lot of Ultimix and other DJ Service vinyl. He offered to make me a mix-tape of stuff I hadn’t heard yet, and it included some very long and remixed versions of Sweet Sensations “Hooked on You,” and “Say It’s Gonna Rain,” Big Pig’s “Breakaway,” Grace Jones “I’m Not Perfect,” and whatever else wasn’t played on our city’s radio stations. I was mesmerized and played that tape until it lost it’s tone. Audio Cassette was low quality anyway, it picked up a lot of noise, and if you paid extra for Dolby Noise Reduction and metal cassette tape or the other premium substance I forget the name of, it would cut out the higher range of the audio spectrum and make the music sound flat to me. Even before you corrected your post I knew who you were talking about and figured you meant Sweet Sensation.

    Awesome mix! I still can’t find a quality version of the only other U.S. Hot 100 hit by Sly Fox called “Stay True”, this brings back memories though.

  13. Nathan Alan Says:

    Thanks Paul. I haven’t even started playing this download yet, and already that repetitive vocal and sound samples are being resurrected from my recessive memory and reminding me that no matter how difficult some of those years were at times, there were still good friends, good music, and good memories too. Some of the best songs came from musicians that never released anything memorable again. If they moved to other projects with other performers, I never knew about it in the pre-internet age.

    How did people keep track of what musicians did before and after life in a band, before you could look them up on the internet? I imagine their were insider magazines and true fans bought every issue of the music magazines like Rolling Stone and others and kept up with artists that way? It’s fascinating now when I listen to people talk about how so many music projects in the 80s were born from the remnants of earlier projects which fell apart for various reasons, and the musicians went separate ways and started new projects that went on to be prolific and relevant sometimes, and I was just so out of the loop during that decade because my parents did not believe in TV, and the only magazines they let me have were from their respective Churches to spread their religious dogma.

    Today’s record is really special. I didn’t even realize how much I still like this song until I saw the post while browsing my email.

    Wow, Paul. Just seeing this cover flashed me back to early 1986. I would travel down to Melbourne from Adelaide every holiday season and shop at a store called Central Station, one of the few Australian stores which specialised in importing records from Europe and the US. One of their specialties was 12″ mixes. This cost me AUD$35 in 1986 !!! So excited to have a pristine rip this epic mix !

    This is one of those songs where I could never remember the artist. Thank you for filling the gap. 🙂
