    How do you know such things,DjPaulT? This is one of my favorite records from the 80’s and I have so many fond memories of this song and the video as well. Of course, Arthur Baker did the mix which is another reason this is so excellent. Another, WOW moment for me, especially after a busy day at work. Home right now, after five and I couldn’t wait to log in and see the terrific surprise you gave to us. I can’t wait to crank this baby on up. I am so looking forward to the dub too, as these things are so rare these days on CD compilations.

    Thanks again, a million times so!!!

    Jeff

    Bonus Beats: Don’t know if you have it or not, but Face To Face’s other single, “Under The Gun” is FIERCE!! Another Arthur Baker gem with hot edits by the Latin Rascals. I love the pulverizing percussion that this record showcases. Definitely, something to think about sometime.

    You’re welcome Jeff this record is one of my favorites and reminds me a lot of Romeo Void. It’s just so catchy. I will be posting the other single at some point 🙂

    I can totally hear Romeo Void in this one, Paul. Such a cool analogy to that wonderful band. And Arthur really did such an exquisite mix too. I love how he uses the glockenspiel in this one. He really must have liked that instrument as he uses that in Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark” remix. And in “Girls Just Want To Have Fun” too. He really was such a force in the remix game. I know he loved edits as he wanted the Latin Rascals to sell razor blades at the time. He was able to bring street tastes and techniques to his pop music productions. Your site has so many of his unbelievable remixes that I am beyond grateful to you for bringing his music back to our ears, hearts and dancing feet. You are such a blessing Paul.

    Mad Love!!

    I am in my happy place right now!! Paul, just finished listening to this and I am thrilled. I forgot how good the dub version was. The little rhythmic edits and the right kind of vocal manipulations, make this such a treasure. You really pull-out-all-the-stops when you rip your records. Such clarity, such fidelity. You’re always dazzling with what you do Paul. Sending you bear hugs from afar.

    This is another band I never heard of. And like so many times you post something “new” I love it. You’re right, it sounds like Romeo Void which I discovered right here on BTG. The remixes sound great. Thanks a lot Paul for introducing me to Face To Face.

    You’re welcome Daniel. It always makes me happy when I post something fairly unknown outside the USA and my readers from other parts of the world love it 🙂

    Thanks so much Paul. This is one of my favorites too. I didn’t see the picture cover in Australia when released, just a generic Epic sleeve, so it’s nice to see that too.

    Glad you like it mate 🙂

    This is one of those records that seemingly erased itself from my memory. I’m playing it now and can see the video in my mind just as clear as if I last saw it yesterday, not 30+years ago. Despite that, I had completely forgotten this song and band. This is one of my favorite reasons for being a regular on your site- you will unearth memories I had no idea were missing at least once or twice a month! Off to YouTube now, to see if my recollection of it is as complete as my brain remembers…

    If I recall correctly, Laurie Sargent, the singer, did all the vocals for Diane Lane in “Streets of Fire.” Thanks for posting this classic!

    Giallokiller Reply:

    They were several singers but yes Laurie was one of them.

    To speak about the song, it is just awesome. Such a great song that also kind of brings back the feeling and spirit of back then.
    Magnificent!
