Sire ‎– SRD 1035
I don't agree with the review below by cybercollector. I think the full length 12 inch mixes are brilliant, original sounding and if you cannot make them work on a dance floor, you are either failing as a DJ or your clientele are boring and can't dance to funky music. These mixes are full of life and everything the proto house sound of New York represents in full effect. Yes, the 6:50 mix is tighter and easier to beat match but it is lifeless in comparison, and to try and hype the drum break at the end of the 6:50 edit as some epic finale is pointless, when it is so obviously spliced on as an edit at the end. Yes it is useful, and in fact I used it on the end of the original here at https://www.mixcloud.com/SpacemanT/spacemant-presents-mixed-up-in-the-loft/ 1.01.30
This 12 inch is glorious in my opinion......

The B-side by Arthur R. ends like a Velvet Underground jam circa 1967. David Byrne on guitar? No more doubt. He was a young student from The Lou Reed GuitART School at that time.

While the A-side has a fuller and bigger sounding mix, I find myself drawn more and more to the mixdown done by Arthur Russel and Nicky Siano.

The A-side mix feels huge - encompassing an enormous space with its long reverb tails on the vocals and other instruments, but there is this subtle intimacy created through the use of spatial effects on the B-side. The vocal doesnt sound like its in a vast empty cavern but rather in the same room as the listener. At once you are drawn closer to the source, made to feel the narrative of the singer isnt bigger than life itself but instead very real, very tangible. From an artistic perspective, the warm almost claustrophobic atmosphere of proximity is exactly what a song called "Kiss Me Again" should evoke.

The b-side 12.42 version is the one you want. Stronger groove, pimped horns... Brilliant. If you gonna play it in a club dont even bother with the other versions.

They can re-issue AR's back cat as often as they like; the thing is, to hear the original recordings vs 99% of re-issues, you'd be amazed at the difference in sound quality. I don't just mean the vinyl transfer, or if its straight from the masters vs a vinyl rip from a used copy, the thing is these recordings were engineered from the start with the final listening media in mind. On todays market, all things are considered, especially radio & MP3. The art of vinyl mastering & transfer started in the recording studio (as vinyl was the media of the time) let alone when it was handed over for manufacture. So hearing tracks like this on the OG format: There is no competition. Richer dynamic depth & a true, warm analog sound. This is, btw, one of the greatest alternative Disco records. There is nothing like it. The Dinosaur 'version' stands on its own as an exceptional piece of music, and is rarely rivalled, let alone bettered...

Is this now the only major Arthur Russell thing that hasn't been reissued recently?
