CD 1 (More of my roots and favorites)

1. Telex – Moskow Diskow (English 12" version) 05:25
At the time when part 1 of Grand 12 Inches was released it was impossible to get this track, therefore I am so pleased to get it for Grand 12 Inches. It ranks way up there with Moroder and the best of sequencer based electronic dance music. What makes it even better is that the french version is also included as last track on this CD!!

2. Harry Thumann – Underwater (12" version) 06:01

It took some time but I finally got a hold of this track and "Baby Records", the original record company it came from. Underwater marks the absolute pinnacle in instrumental / orchestral dance music. It's drive is only equaled by it's excellent orchestral arrangement. It's rhythm and bass line are pumpng and when played in your car, will have you speeding in no time. Special Thanks to Freddy Naggiar for granting me this track.

3. Marin Circus - Disco Circus (full length version) 14:02

Another disco gem for true connoisseur. It proved however impossible to find the full length version. The best that could be found was a master of the first 7 minutes and a quite remarkable quality vinyl transfer. Should it be the better sounding short version or the 14 minute vinyl transfer. I decided on both giving you the first half from the master and the second half of the vinyl transfer carefully matched to the master.
If eventually the full master pops up somewhere, I am sure to find a way to get it to you in my effort to bring you the best possible (and impossible).

4. Harold Faltermeyer – Axel F (12" version) 07:12

The theme to Eddy Murphy's charismatic performance of Axel Foley in the series of "Beverly Hills Cop" feature films. A decant master of the Latin Rascals version could not be found.

5. C.O.D. – In The Bottle (12" version) 06:03

A well executed electro version of Gil Scott Heron's "In The Bottle by C.O.D. which features also the much used "Uno Dos Tres Quattro" intro. Great stuff and great sound!

6. Dazz Band – Let It All Blow 05:51

Why this track? First of all because of the great syncopated synth riffs and daring arrangement, the funky clean sound and because I never could find it on any compilation CD previously.

7. Dan Hartman – Vertigo / Relight My Fire (full length version) 11:59

It is true that this record is abused for anything and everything related to the 80's. Nevertheless it is one of the finest pieces of disco ever made. Why does it deserve to be here whilst it was on so many CD's before? Because this is the most complete version ever. The original 12" version featured the 6:52 vocal version and the B-side had the 4:34 Vertigo Intro running seamless into the 6:48 "progressive instrumental version". Somewhere mid 80's the vertigo intro was spliced to the vocal version, but now you get the full story starting of with "Vertigo", the full length drum break before "Relight my fire" , the full length vocal version and the full length drum outro at the end. And all of this mastered from the original analog tapes from the archives of Sony resulting in a whopping 11:59 seconds

8. Supermax – Love Machine (12" version) 08:38

This was so over the top at the time that it became cool again. It is a pain to mix as the tempo actually increases during the song from somewhere about 129 to a little over 132 BPM. Nevertheless great sound and master quality.

9. American Gypsy – I'm OK, You're OK (12" version) 05:24

It is incredible that this piece of American sounding disco was produced by the same guy who created the cheesy girl group "Luv" in Holland. His name is Hans van Hemert. I'd loved to include the full Disconet version, but there simply wasn't room enough to fit it on any of the CD's
10. Telex – Moskow Diskow (French 12"version) 07:28

As promised, also the french version of this great Belgian piece of electronic dance music.
