'Going Back To My Roots' (Disco Mix) by Lamont Dozier (1977)

Zartek is in the house, Earth people!  
I know you haven't heard from me in a long time and this was mainly due to my job doing feldercarp cleanup back in the Nelion Galaxy. After 5 years I'd just had it, so I quit.  Now it's all music, all the time. This means you're much more likely to see gems popping up here on AHOF.  Keep your eyes and ears peeled!  
I thought it would be appropriate to return with this (unreal) Dozier classic. Here we have the much sought after disco mix from an original pressing of the promo only single, cut at 45.  
Listen to the words and get lost in this one (pause).

yeah yeah, great you were back and all that but one comment on the actual track...I think people missed out on the fact that this is the Extended Disco Mix....EXTENDED DISCO MIX!!!,

Maan the way the whole track is underscored by those rolling tom-toms, I think even if you were pronounced clinically brain dead your limbs would still twitch to this record.....and I am sure like your good alien self that you love the original but maybe its hearing it one to many times...I dunno but this mix just feels so damned fresh....33 years old?!?? time makes no sense to me anymore!

Did I mention how much I love the break that begins with the piano around 6:31 and then the African singing and instruments kick in....then the piano and chant explodes!

one for the machine elves ;)

Great post! I?m just starting out in community management/marketing media and trying to learn how to do it well - resources like this article are incredibly helpful. As our company is based in the US, it?s all a bit new to us. The example above is something that I worry about as well, how to show your own genuine enthusiasm and share the fact that your product is useful in that case.
