“Tell I’m Not Dreaming (Too Good To Be True)” is a song by Jermaine Jackson featuring his younger brother Micheal. It’s taken from his ’85 self-titled album: a track that was never officially released as a single because of legal difficulties between Michael’s label, Epic, and Jermaine’s label, Arista. The song did receive anyway a lot of airplay and it was nominated for “Best R&B Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals” at the Grammy Awards. This 12” version is remixed by Steve Algozino for his Hot Tracks Music Service.

It’s all about the guitar of Paul Reynolds and the haircut of Mike Score. The first element was the magic, the second was the ruin for the British band A Flock Of Seagulls. I know the 80’s was a bad period for fashion but do you really remember his hair cut? “Space Age Love Song” is a personal guilty pleasure, and in case you didn’t get it, it’s all about the sound of the guitar of Paul Reynolds.

I’ve always been a fan of “Back In Love Again” by Love Togetherness Devotion: the guitar riff is very catchy and then there are the lead vocals by Jeffrey Osborne. In 1984, 7 year after the original release Steve Algozino (with the help of Patrick Cowley) provided this edit for his Hot Tracks Music Service. 11 Minutes of pleasure: the last part with Cowley playing with the synths is pure bliss.
