Sometimes I get a little too hung up on whether something has already been posted somewhere else, or whether its a well known track or not etc before I will consider a record for recording and putting up on the site. I have decided to drop those pre-requisites, because whether a track is known or not is really relative to your level of sad record collector beardy'ness, and whether it is posted or not is usually relative to how many medifire or rapidshare links you are willing to click on, plus who cares anyway. I took a quick look around for this one and couldn't see it easily available, so thats good enough for me, especially considering it's, as they say in the jazz world, a standard.
Lime are a well known disco pop duo from Montreal composed of husband and wife Denis and Denyse LePage. Denis was a prolific producer in the Hi NRG scene, and hence a lot of Lime records turn up in San Francisco record bins, SF being a Hi NRG city. On The Grid is in contrast to most of their releases as it is a predominantly instrumental italo jam, with a sparse vocoder vocal line. It turned up on some bootleg compilations a few years ago, but here I offer you both side of the Prism records 12", the dub and the "remix". I have never really been able to tell the difference between the remix and the dub versions, and back in the day would just play either side at random..listening now I think the 'remix' version is better.
