So Gino Soccio and his hits are standards, vets, diggers and collectors will smirk at the notion that I would post such 101 offerings. And its true, I should be villafied, if it wasn't of course for the case that this is Gino Soccio's own megamix of his greatest work, designed and packaged as a workout routine musical backing for the body concious Canadian ladies of 1982.
Gino spliced this together himself, and the mix on the A side is entitled 'Get It Up' and is made up of the tracks 'Dancer' , 'Try It Out' and 'Its Alright'. The B side is a cool down, stretching, hippy yoga mix entitles 'Detente'.
The best part about this short mix is that not only does it flow so well between tracks that really represented the benchmark of production quality at the time, but it also gives you 13 minutes and 12 seconds in which you can leave the DJ booth and go pee or have a smoke and everyone will go home claiming that was probably the best 13 minutes of your set, none the wiser.
