Hi Migen 2000, if you created the mix i have to congratulate you because this mix is truly a legend (the mix of all mixes!) an example of a lot of mixes created today, i like to know if you can tell me where the clap track that you can hear throughout the whole mix is taken from?
I really envy you cause of the popularity and the super quality of this mix (Medley) How did you feel about the fact that Mr. eggermont stole your complete idea, copied it, and became a millionair with this medley that he called Stars on 45?

Hi Guys,
I think I can help you out with the missing track since I created the mix . The missing track was put there intentionnaly so that my DJ friends from Montreal and New York would scratch there heads looking for this track. The 12inch was releases on a small label out of Montreal named Vitamin records by a good friend of mine and the title is *Handsome Man* by Sparkle Turhan & Friends. I am plesantly suprised by the interest for this missing song more then 30 years later.

On the mp3-copy I have from this - as well as in the videos liked on this page - there is a piece of "Ringo Starr - No No Song" between "Electric Light Orchestra – Last Train To London" and "Fred Wesley & The JB's – Doing It To Death" (around the 12 minute mark).
Why is this missing in the tracklist of every version of this release?

I have a copy of "this" which is identical in labels but has cat no ATO-001 in runout groove of the Disco Mix side; The Lets Do It mix is identical (runout groove is AL1001 and F/W (Frankford Wayne)), however the tracklist is totally different on the Disco Mix side starting with Queen - Another One Bites The Dust (which most of the side is based around), going in to Kraftwerk - Trans Europe Express and other stuff such as Wild Cherry, Rolling Stones, Average White Band etc

Michel Gendreau was one of the main creators of the Famous disco mix-Let's Do it.

Here is the story behind it: A guy named Michel Ali brought a tape with a mix one night at the club were Michel was spinning.
After listening to it the spices were not that great, the sound was uneven, the records were old and full of noise but Michel saw the potential but it needed to be cleaned up.

So the whole medley was redone from scratch with Michel's records and a third guy named Paul Richer who was a great splicer. The medley was created in two parts.

The first part that was redone was the original beatles medley that started with *Video killed the radio star* and then eventualy finished with the Beatles songs. The second part was the intro and finish of the medley.
The idea was get the patrons on the dance floor with popular disco hits of the moment and mix in the 10" tape that was used when they started playing it(no bootleg yet).

There was no pitch on the reel to reel so Michel ajusted the pitch on his turntable that was playing one of the intro songs(funkytown was a sure bet).
So the medley could be introduced smoothly and people would just continue dancing on the old beatles songs.
No DJ's in clubs in Montreal were playing old Beatles songs in 1979 so this was a high risk decision to test this medley.
As for the ending *The JB's was a big hit in Montreal at that time so if they lost the patrons on the beatles songs they could get them back on ot the dance floor with the JB's.
Michel did not want to take any chances, but history as proven that this was a fantastic medley one of the rare bootlegs that was used to create a commercial success(Stars on 45).

Some people asked Michel to add more Beatles songs in the medley but he always refused and to this day says that the original mix is still the best one out there.

It was simple and fun to dance to.

The very first pressing was the one on the Alto passion label.
