Various – Hot Tracks Series 1 Issue 11 (US 12″)

Side A

While no longer in busines Hot Tracks was the LONGEST-RUNNING DJ Remix Service in the World! Based here in my home town Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Hot Tracks for years and years was carried in THOUSANDS of DJ’s Crates, as the goto service for remix edits and creative ideas on the dancefloors. For a while HOT TRACKS was known for being one of the most creative, and interesting remix services available to DJ’s. Hot Tracks was an invaluable service and an important piece of HISTORY!

This issue was released for the Christmas Season 1982 hence the inclusion of “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” by Steve Algozino who gives the traditiona carol contemporary space age madness. Probably the most sought after remix in this set is “Nasty Girl” retitled “Nasty Nasty Girl” by Vanity 6. This song inclines towards the highly suggestive and downright dirty lyrics. Hot Tracks didn’t help matters any by creating “Nasty Nasty Girls”, by rearranging the entire song to enhance the already enthusiastic synthesized strings, bass line and lyrics. The new mix runs almost 8 minutes and moves quickly with a 7 inch introduction.

This set also includes “It’s A Shame” by The Spinners a Motown classic taken from The Best Of The Spinners LP released in 1973. The track has been lenghtened with new percussion tracks and equalization so that it can be mixed easily with today’s down tempo material.

Hope that you enjoy this great set of remixes from Hot Tracks.
