    I love this!! Thank you for sharing! Just wondering if you have any remixes of Boy George’s music from 1991 under his project “Jesus Loves You”?

    Paul, I think you know more than anyone how much I love these exclusive DJ mixes! Whoa, the things that are on your site are a dance music maniac’s wet dream come true! I love how you surprise us with these awesome rarities, done the way only you can do. Ooh, how I value your methods and HUGE LOVELY HEART AND SOUL!! Again, everyday is a holiday on Burning The Ground! Like Sade once said, “Everyday is Christmas, and every night is New Years Eve.” It’s such a celebration here all the time! Gosh, you are a phenomenal individual who is just so special! Thanks Paul for all the love you show us in the way of music.

    Thank you Jeff I love this mix and prefer it over the more Soul To Soul sounding version. Love the 70’s disco vibe that Mr. Anderson gave the track very Love Unlimited sounding 🙂


  6. David Says:

    Looking forward to hearing this. One of my favorite all-time songs by any artist, but I’ve never been able to track down a copy of this. I didn’t realize it was the DMC mix, I wonder if I ever passed over one of those? Doesn’t matter now, thanks!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Enjoy David!


  7. NKelly Says:

    Awesome looking forward to hearing this. Just got in from a night of supermarket shopping, filling up the car bottom to top and voting in our general election! Thanks for this gem


  8. Davos Via 45 Says:

    Interesting rmx, the DMC dudes made a lot HQ remixes, mixes and megamixes but released them on vinyl pressings of very poor quality 🙁 Have a lotta them from the early 90s.


  9. wolfie Says:
