EXTENDED Disco Remix - MISS YOU, the best one ever
Posted by: treaclefingers ()
Date: April 25, 2022 03:42

OK, I was just listening to the glorified four on the floor DISCO REMIX of Miss You...over 8 minutes of hip-shaking, satin shirt (and pants) wearing boogie wonderland.

It struck me. It's better than any other version of the song, the album, the single edit...in this case more is much better!

It then further struck me...this is quite probably the best extended mix of any song ever. Here it is:





Right? Agree?

OH...you don't? Put up something that's better!

I DEFY YOU!

Basically I do agree, but the even better version is the (exact same) one pressed onto pink vinyl!

Remix my ass. Just a different edit of the 10 minute or whatever song.

Best remix?

Harlem Shuffle.

Exactly! I have this maxi single since it was released. Abslolutly fantastic, groovy and sexy.

There's an itch deep in my brain that I have to scratch.... It's telling me that the long version is a totally different take to the 7" singe version, and NOT a remix.

Does my itch have a point? Anyone?

Perhaps the 7" is a redux of the 12" (painted black?).

i'd like to know that too

i have the pink version as well

but stamped on the back it says "property of the white pass jr/sr high school"

which was my school so i had to buy it when i found it at a local flea market a couple years ago

no idea why my school had this

I have 12" pink vinyl as well. Love it !!

And now you mention it, sometimes when i have listened to it, it does feel like a different take as well as a different mix.

Also agree that Harlem Shuffle is a great 12" extended mix. Same with One Hit.

This is quite good, but there is no sax solo. The sax solo is what really makes the song. With that, I defer to the album version.

As one that despises the idea of remixes, the Miss You 12" disco is a great one!

Likewise though, I do wish the sax was in it.

I remember buying the 12 inch single down in Bellingham at a new/used record shop back in the early 80s when our family went down to do some shopping. I think it's the only time I've seen it in a record store! Glad I bought it but haven't listened to it since then.

What is a remix? Is a remix taking a track and mixing it differently? If so, then the long versions of "Miss You" (Rarities, Don't Stop single, 8-Track and DSKO mix) are simply not remixes, even though they have different mixes.

As Ryan Pow pointed out, there's no Mel Collins tenor sax solo on the 1978 DSKO mix.
   
   
Mel Collins Sax on Miss You

Is it a different edit? I guess you could say the 'extended versions' of "Miss You" are different edits.

Are the longer versions of "Miss You" edits? According to Merriam Webster, "to assemble (something, such as a moving picture or tape recording) by cutting and rearranging" is an edit of something.

If these 'extended versions' of "Miss You" are different edits, then they'd all have to be taken from the same original track.

Edits should not be considered the same as remixes. Are these 'extended versions' of "Miss You" remixes or re-edits? They are different mixes and there is also different editing. Except for the pair of 8.35 versions of "Miss You, both mixes are by Bob Clearmountain."

The 2002 re-release "Miss You (remix)" 8.35 from the "Don't Stop" single has the same editing, same length as the 1978 "Miss You" DSKO release, but the mixes are very different.

Compare the 2002 "Miss You remix" to the 1978 DSKO "Miss You."

Awful track but popular with the casuals for a bit of a singalong.

Yes! I bought the One Hit maxi about 25 years ago in a second hand record store. Many of the remixes are useless but Miss You, which is less mixed and overdubbed than the album version,
One Hit and Harlem Shuffle are great.

The best mix of Miss You is clearly the 8-Track version

Don´t forget WINNING UGLY. The remix changes the rather bad track into a real great groovy tune. Absolutely great acoustic guitar work on that

If you just can't get enough this is for you, I think this is a great remix.
