This record is only worth picking up for the b-side (the a-side: Wild Thing is atrocious).
Although not stated as such on the record, Follow Me is in fact a remix version (probably the same as Follow Me - Special 87 Mix), with a hard edged, almost metallic bassline typical of many Power Records releases.
The sparse, almost minimalist arrangement and entirely synthetic production of this version has a very different feel from the original and brings out the more melancholy aspects of the composition.
Based on the discogs ratings, it’s probably not to most peoples’ taste, but in my opinion it’s an interesting take on a disco classic and definitely worth a listen for lovers of Italo and HiNRG.
