Tom Moulton's Ross Remix

Diana RossPosted by pocat 2012-07-02 13:44

Tom Moulton made this raw take on Diana Ross' "Upside Down" a couple of years back. Listen especially to Diana's ad-libs at the end.

According to the info I have, this was supposed to be a part of the CHIC Organization box set released in 2010, but was not included. Maybe it will be included on a Vol. 2? Tom Moulton also remixed "Everybody Dance", "Spacer", "I Like Love" (A personal favorite of mine) and "We Are Family".

Thanks to Sanjay Parmar for posting the track on Soundcloud.

It's a kinda tribute to CHIC that legendary Tom Moulton work on CHIC prod. remix. He's the best 70's music remixer. His work is always very respectfull of the original track. Can't wait to hear the others remixes...

Very recently on Twitter Nile seemed to talk and to work on new remixes with Dimitri from Paris and an unreleased CHIC track for maybe a CHIC Box 2 at the end of 2013. I'm gonna asked to Warner France if there is something new about it...

Yes maybe one day we will all get to buy the full CHIC Organization produced Mathis and Fonzi albums... Let's hope before we expire. ;)

Thanks for the reply. I forgot to say, I loved the photos from the album cover session too! Due to this post I've re-listened to the whole Diana album, both the released version and the original mix version! Love hearing the differences! I still would like to see the Mathis album released in full with a whole remix treatment, maybe one day!

Charles, I agree it's always nice to hear alternate vocal takes like this. It's great that Tom Moulton had the balls to use them. I'm also, hoping for and looking forward to a CHIC box Vol II... Let's hope it will materialize.

This is a great stripped down version of a classic CHIC Org song. Love the ad libs at the end! I normally don't like remixes of CHIC, however thus will make me want to re-listen to the real thing. It would have sat nicely in the 2010 box set! Bring on vol two! Thanks for posting.....
