Was (Not Was) - Spy in the House of Love (Dr. X In Full Effect Mix) 1988

This remix is so reliant on samples it wouldn't turn a profit in today's litigious industry.  It follows the style of successful club tunes of the era, namely "Check This Out" by LA Mix, "Beat Dis" by Bomb the Bass and MARRS's "Pump Up the Volume".  The remixed components really dominate, virtually rendering the original track insignificant.  I'm surprised that on most releases it seems the remix was called the Dr X. in Full Effect Mix.  I would have thought using Derek B's name more prominently would result in cross promotion benefiting everyone.
