Can anyone comment on the quality of the RE's as compared to the original release?

B side contains the original version (called MALE VERSION), produced in 1980 by Arthur Russell with a club DJ named Steve D’Acquisto; it was a masterpiece of that time. It became a worldwide club hit and also one of the most important mixing of the master Larry Levan during his career (A side). This was the Russell’s song that definitely occupied the raking of the timeless disco classics with a twisted disco bass, a well done rhythm section by the Ingram Brothers and vocals of three unknown dancers D’Acquisto and Russell found on the private club The Loft. One of them, Melvina Woods, whose lyrics “Is it all over my face? You’ve caught me love dancing,” brought a touch of class to the song, originated the Strictly Rhythm house classic “Luv' dancing”, of Underground Solution & Jasmine some years later. Avant-garde composer Philip Glass said once about Arthur Russell's style: "This was a guy who could sit down with a cello and sing with it in a way that no one on this earth has ever done before, or will do again."
