    Hey Paul, you make a perfect work on this rip, and a question, would you have the 12″ and 7″ of New Order’s: Blue Monday, it will be great if you post it in BTG.

    I love the Tom Tom Club Paul. I can’t say I remember this single, but that’s one of the reasons I adore BTG and you because you introduce and re-introduce songs that may have slipped my consciousness the first time around. Looking forward to the download. You’re awesome!

    Terrific song for Summer Paul. I am diggin’ the vibe here, especially on the Dance and Club mixes. Ah, the Tom Tom Club is just so funky with that island feel. I could almost smell the sun oil and hear the seagulls!! It was cool seeing Marshall Jefferson and Juan Atkins here too. They were really big back in the day. That’s another reason I love what you do Paul in that you preserve a lot of Dance Music’s movers and shakers with your beautiful sonic archives. I love your passion and talent and that sunny personality that comes shining through on your site Paul. You are my Hero!!!

    Loved this single back in the day; a bit more subdued than earlier Tom Tom Club but a great song nonetheless. Thanks for posting!

  7. Christian Says:

    I was always fascinated that they changed the track list at the last minute and had to use that (poorly aligned) sticker. I may have even peeled it off my copy to see what was originally planned 😉

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I was tempted to peek Christian but I never did so what is behind that sticker will remain a mystery for me 🙂
