The Quick - Zulu (1981)

Colin Campsie & George McFarlane, the two members of The Quick reached a good level of popularity in the 80' as artists and as producers for acts like Haywoode and Girls Can't Help It,
very imaginative in its use of keyboards, "Zulu" is a pure electronic delight, hunting echoed bassline and some tribal elements, they were ahead of their time, the American remix is by another popular name :John Luongo. This is a rare extended instrumental version.

thanks.

if i recall coreectly, the original john luongo mix was actually shorter than the vocal mix.
i believe someone at epic records did an extended edit (incorporating instrumental elements of the longer vocal mix) especially for club dj's

The guy who did the re-edit was the CBS DJ Pool assistant Club Promotions, he was called Greg Lynn. Greg was also responsible for several other re-edits on the verious CBS labels inc Joe Thomas' 'Plato's Retreat', Herbie Hancock' Ready Or Not / Tell Everybody' and Sarah Dash' 'Sinner Man'
