    Thx Paul,
    another great post!

    the Dub mix is missing from the Cherry Red remastered edition
    and your audio quality is superior.

    Thank you so much Paul for this sublime rip. I love the songs of their debut album. My favorite track is “Come go with me”. I also have the Cherry Red Remastered edition. It’s great to get the Dub Mix for the first time in pristine audio quality.

    You’re most welcome Daniel I think “Come Go Wth Me” is my favorite too 🙂

    Thankyou for this Paul. I hope you post “Stop Listen Look & Think” by Expose’ sometime. That was released as a single only on 12″ promo.


    DjPaulT Reply:

    Dan I have “Stop Listen Look & Think” in a box so I will dig it out and try to post it when I can 🙂


  6. Junior Says:

    I have a few singles by Expose, but not this one. I remember hearing the aforementioned “Dub Mix” and was bowed over straight away.

    Thanks Paul 🙂

    Surprising 12 inch. Many versions are on this that I did not yet have on cd releases. thanks!


  8. Jeff Says:

    Oh those wonderful 1980’s girl groups!! Paul, thank you for continuing the discography of Expose on your page. This was always a great track and again, I am breathless because of the dub version you’ve posted. Lewis A. Martineé is such a great producer and his Latin Hip Hop tracks are so good compared to a lot of other inferior Freetstyle records. This is high quality stuff with excellent thought, mix and production and musicality. I do so love it all!!
