ABC – The Real Thing (12″)


Sneaking into the grey area of was it the 80’s or 90’s ? (which is very difficult when you take into these Pop/Dance tracks.)

ABC at time the duo of Martin Fry and Mark White were embracing the House scene and this was off the album “Up”. Self produced and mixed by  Bob Kraushaar it shines with quality and coolness. But they did work with some good remixer’s. Frankie Knuckles remixes the main track (with David Morales of course), giving them some credibility with the Club Crowd with improved house mix with added vibes. Also have the Deep, Space House vibe of album track “The Greatest Love Of All” remixed by May Day,not Techno artist Derrick May but the mysterious Vibeke Viken.
