Gloria Gaynor ‎– I Will Survive

Genre:
Style:
Year:
Notes:
Originally released as the B-side to a cover version of the Righteous Brothers song "Substitute", "I Will Survive" became a worldwide hit for Gaynor when disc jockeys played that side of the record instead. New copies of the record were eventually pressed with "I Will Survive" as the A-side. The song was a huge hit well into 1979, and remains a popular disco anthem.

This master release contains all editions which give "I Will Survive" A-side status or equivalent primary billing. It also contains editions for which "Substitute" is considered the A-side.

Not to be merged with this master release:

- quadruple-A-side compilation "Never Can Say Goodbye" / "Honey Bee" / "Reach Out (I'll Be There)"
- double-A-side compilation with 'Let Me Know (I Have The Right)'
- double-A-side compilation with "Megamedley"

Disappointed in the level drop after the intro, you would have thought this would have been caught before pressing.

This I can imagine might be the best pressing ever of I Will Survive. Zero surface noise, great dynamics, awesome detail and fantastic soundstage. A must have if you are into Gloria Gaynor.

If you're a fan of 90's commercial house check out these mixes. The Retro Active mix was actually very good, and I've never seen these mixes on any other pressing except on this white label.
