BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1983

A. Side

DISCO FRIDAY!

Re-Rip Newly Remastered!

Originally I posted this one on March 25, 2011. But for those who may have missed it or if you are a new reader just discovering BTG. I decided to give this one a new rip with my newer Ortofon Super 30 stylus. This 12″ is also being posted in 24 bit flac for the very first time!

“Give It Up” was a UK number one single for three weeks in August 1983 for KC & the Sunshine Band, although it was simply credited as KC in many countries, including the US. It went on to become the 18th best-selling single of the year in the UK. It was the last and most successful of the act’s 10 hits in the UK, and was somewhat of a comeback hit in the United States. Following the backlash against many disco artists on the charts in the early 1980s, the song peaked at #18 in the US in January 1984.
