A disco version of Diana Ross’ "Theme from Mahogany"? Why not, but it’s trully awful, with flat and off-key singing. Besides this UK pressing (the only available 12") it’s not a long remix, it’s just a cut and paste re-edit. The original lp version is more or less 5 min. long and the 12 inch version is 8:40: they just took off the one minute slow intro (incidentally that makes the remix begin abruptly) and they repeated the rest of the song twice!! The B-side features two songs taken from the album, in their lp versions. The whole album is an embarrassment for both the Sylvers and the Moroder/Faltermeyer/Köppers team who produced them. They came with only formulaic disco clichés and not new ideas. And ironically it was the lp (NBLP-7151) released by Casablanca just after «Bad girls»! What were they thinking at Casablanca?
