I REMEMBER (Pun intended) buying the album at Vinyl Mania in NYC. Now I must have the 12 inch version. Truly a masterpiece!

It should be noted that the timing on the label is wrong for the A-side. It's the same 4:53 version as on the Atlantic US release.

UPDATE - There is also an original official US Atlantic 12" of the 6:34 LP version of Remember b/w Dream On by Gino Soccio that was only issued as a commercial release - you had to buy it in record stores. Atlantic did not designate sides on this 12" with a letter or a number. Personally, I do not ever recall seeing this 12" in any of the top record stores in NY City during the 1980s. This is unusual because Atlantic promoted the Face To Face LP through record pools, as well as the promo 12" of a shorter remixed version of Remember that did not have the distinctive intro found on the LP version and bore only a slight resemblance to the full length LP version which most of the top DJs played, but then decided to release the full length LP version on a 12" without much fanfare or much of a production run.

This is the only original official 12" with the full length LP mix, which is on side B. Inexplicably, Atlantic issued the US promo-only 12" as a shorter version without the distinctive intro on the LP version, and remixed it to the point that it bears only a slight resemblance to the original LP version. The top DJs in NY City during the 1980s played the LP version.

Those who love this track should really seek this 12 out as it easily sounds the best and most dynamic of all the single releases and LP appearences. The remix starts out with more of an electro tip and the effects are echoed out a bit in a dub style but it's still somewhat similar to the original. Vocals are much more pronounced in the mix on both versions than its original appearence on "Face To Face."

'Remember' is Gino Soccio's finest and most futuristic moment, and there are many.
This one is an amazing proto-techno disco number with absolutely incredible synth pad coming at the chorus while a distant girl voice is talking over Gino's perfect discopop singing, bringing the dancer into robot heaven.
'Remember' was released in 1982, but the drum-machine programming is so phat and compressed that it puts to shame most of the retrofuturist 'electroclash' records produced after 2000.
Think the club mix of Visage's 'Fade To Grey', think 'Spacer Woman' by Charlie...well 'Remember' delivers the same kind of robotdisco emotion, only PHATTER.
