workin' on the weekend

Flowchart's 'Ask the Boss' is one of those warm keyed, sweet as honey, Italo beauties which saw the lights back in 1983 on ZYX. I can't help but hear Metro Area influences deep in this track, it's pure Italo Boogie made for good times and the office, apparently. There is an instrumental on the flip and also a remix which came out on the original Maximus release, a little while before ZYX picked it up. You get the 'Sad Ghost Tape Delay Edit' which switches some of the bits and adds some tape delay tom foolery. Play very loud and 'ask the boss to raise my salary'...

Its one of my all time favorits! If you ask me, we dont need a edit!!!!

sure i hear what u sayin, by that token most things don't need an edit. personally i thought it was pretty fun and lengthened a few bits of the track i like, but mostly i posted it cos its should lead people to seek out the original which is class...

Yes! your right, most songs don´t need an edit. I just get sad some times. Its to easy to take an all time classic an chop it up!!

Yes it is easy, it all depends on how far an editor will push the track and then you're left wondering if it's a remix... i really dont like edits that make a good song, mediocre ...
