And both mixes have verses unique to this 12" - always a delight.

This is a superb Super Sound Single from the proud tradition of the disco era that gave birth to the magical 12-inches!
"Rapture", with Debbie's cool rap, gets a funky latino wrap; this is PARTY!
"Live it up" on the flip tells about the flipside of partying, the truth of too much partying(!!).If you ever liked these two originals, you will love these augmented/fully extended versions meant for the discoteque - They NEVER sounded better. A milestone.
