    It’s so rewarding when you do a re-rip for us Paul. Thanks so much for all this work you do. I love this song!! I love Ivan Ivan (or I Squared) and I think his mixes are great. And again, what’s so great about you is that you give us the other versions that go ignored, like the “Breathless Beats” mix. I can’t help but rejoice over these extra mixes and such. You’re the coolest Paul. You do keep us breathless!!

    Thank you Jeff. Thought you might enjoy the edits on this one 🙂


    Jeff Reply:

    Oh Paul!! Yes, the edits on this track are FIERCE!! It still boggles my mind that these were done the old fashioned way with tape and razorblades. Unbelievable artwork that these guys did when producing dance mixes/remixes of the past!!

  4. Don Says:

    Love this! More Figures on a Beach would be awesome. The 12-inch singles for “Accidentally 4th Street (Gloria)” and “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” are in serious need of a decent vinyl rip. 🙂

    You’re welcome don I will see what I can do 🙂
