    OH—-MY—-GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Paul, this is so freaking fantastic of you!! I love this song, but I have to shamefully admit, I’ve never heard the 12-inch before. I’m so embarrassed because you think that I, a HUGE Latin Rascals’ fan would have heard it. I missed out the first time, but it’s never too late to catch up, right? I’m still at work, but this is my “destination” for tonight. Dinner with a download!! Thanks for making our dreams come true. I’m so excited Paul. You are just too much! Thank You!!

    It’s better that you missed it the first time Jeff. The new rips with my new stylus/cartridge sound way better 🙂

  11. Fred Says:

    I don’t recall this song but I am glad it was 45RPM speed for the improved quality! Also, the song has a very Duran Duran feel if you ask me…probably partially due to Latin Rascals working with both artists that timeframe.

    DjPaulT Reply:

    Yeah Latin Rascals worked with Duran on the Notorious album 🙂
