actually this version is the 7" with pic sleeve
I used to mix two copies of the 7" as an extended remix
I remember the album being a huge hit with dj's at the time

Was there ever a 12" pressed??

About 5 years ago when things like Galaxy were big among the kids into rare grooves and soulful boogie in general I used to spin the jazzy, semi-abstract, piano-tinkling intro of the b-side of the 7" a lot, and then when the actual 4/4 rhythm got introduced, slip comfortably in sync from there to the full 12" version. I never noticed any difference in the vocal a-side of the 7" and the 12" apart from the sound quality which was beefier on the twelve. - Some songs on a 7-inch actually had a more robust sound quality than the album version. Giorgio's From Here To Eternity/Utopia medley 7" had a great BOOM to the beat, an echo which resonated thru the space far more commandingly than on the album tracks. Which brings me to my favoured style of music to dance the night away. I like jazzy bossa to wiggle my hips and snap my fingers and groove like a 60's hipster, shades compulsory. I also like records like Jimmy Sabater's To Be With You that combine Latin motifs with symphonic disco. Nice! Boris Midney and stuff like Quiet Village by The Ritchies, I'm grateful. Love's Theme, My Sweet Summer Suite, bring them on. But if I get to choose just one style for a given night, gimme a stomping Munich beat, slippery violins , maddening robotic synths, cosmic whooshes and a girlie chorus for 6 hours straight and I'm in my element. I must have French Ibach, Crocos and Carrere label entries too of course, not just Hansa/Ariola stuff like Pretty Maid Company. Give me everything from all of those, hour after hour, add Costandinos, Cerrone plus early Baby label titles from Italy. Make me dance till I drop, I'll never beg for mercy. Too much of a great thing is never enough.
