Barbra Streisand ~ Shake Me, Wake Me (When It's Over) 1975 Disco Purrfection Version

Barbra was dipping into other styles of music, and one of the songs, a cover of the Four Tops "Shake Me, Wake Me (When It's Over) had a nice steady beat. Someone got the idea to produce and extend this disco oriented record, but it never saw commercial release. The only way to get it is to purchase an existing copy...and sometimes no one wants to let go of it. This 12 promotional single set me back 75.00$ US,, but it was worth it to get a nearly flawless vinyl copy. I didn't like the structure of the original promotional version but there were tons of new instrumental passages to mess around with, lots and lots of synthesizer runs, but at 4:55....it was not enough....i wanted to hear more synthesizers. The production on this one is pretty crappy, I tried sharpening it but it sounds muddled...wish I could get my hands on the master tapes.... I know this is not the perfect remix, its kinda sloppy, but ya know, It has a feel to it. The single never charted pop nor disco. Barbra's first disco charting was with "The Main Event/Fight" 12" peaked at #13 in the summer of 1979.
