Another Tom Moulton Mix

While mixing ‘Dr Love’ Tom Moulton suffered from a heart attack, but he waited more than four hours to go to hospital, because he wanted to finish the track first. The doctor he spoke was not exactly Dr Love, because he was really pissed that Tom hadn’t come any earlier. So it could have been his final mix… Some of the songs borrowed a bit from the Motown sound, like the one from The Independents. Brothers Al and Don Downing sound how The Four Tops would have sounded if they had made a disco record. Although the song is great, I always hear the same kind of flute in the Al Downing track as the one in one of the worst tracks of all time, ‘Una paloma blanca’ from George Baker Selection…

Three of the Tom Moulton mixes in this cloudcast are from his brand new remix album, ‘Philly Re-Grooved 2: The Master Returns’ that came out last week. Apart from the songs I included (Ultra High Frequency, Moment of Truth and The Quickest Way Out), it contains new expanded remixes of First Choice, Terry Collins, Loose Change and TJM. Enjoy my second tribute to pioneer and innovator Tom Moulton! If you like this one, check out part one as well.
