    Yes! Yes! Yes!

    Another forgotten gem from the summer of 1987.

    Thanks so much for the remixes.

    Speaking of 1987, I found an early rip you did of Cutting Crew’s “I’ve Been in Love Before”, (2008 I think).

    If you ever have the urge to re-rip, I’d love to hear the results with your newer equipment.

    Much love and light, Paul.

    You’re welcome Chris. I have that one and planning re-rip soon 🙂

    Hey Paul, I already mentioned it on the Story Of The Blues post, but just wanna check you know the Wah! song Hope (I Wish You’d Believe Me)?
    You will love it!


    DjPaulT Reply:

    I do remember Jermajesty and I love that song hope to post it someday 🙂


  7. Juliano Says:

    Another awesome pick, Paul!!!

    Do you happen to have the extended version for “Diamond Girl”, released back in 1987?
    Hope so 🙂

    WOW! I’d forgotten how good this song was! Also, never heard the Tribal Mix before – thanks for such a great quality post x


  9. Richard Says:

    I must have been on another planet since I don’t really remember this but this is rather delightful. A nice hook, with a decent beat and nice vocals. Thanks for sharing this, another example of why being here is so delightful.


  10. Don Says:

    This is great! The only version of this I have is the 1990(?) version that Wylie did with The Farm.


  11. Pup Don Says:

    OMG! I thought I was the only person who knew this song. In the fall of 87 I started college and found the college radio station. Coming from a small town with crappy radio I had never heard much alternative radio and was in heaven. I had a show and had so much fun discovering new music. My first few weeks there I found a pile of records they were getting rid of. Things that just weren’t be played, even if they were great music. I grabbed a bunch of them. This was in there and I fell in love the minute I heard it. The background singers reminded me of the do da doos in Walk on the Wild Side. And that synthesized voice keyboard sound at the breakdown just sounded magical to me. I have a rip of this from somewhere but I know yours is going to be even better than what I already have, so I’m so excited to hear this. Thank you so much.
