The only way to get the original full length 6:34 LP version of Remember on an original official 12" is on this US Atlantic commercial-only 12" of Remember b/w Dream On that you had to buy in record stores because it was not distributed through record pools, and on the Canadian Celebration 12". Atlantic did not designate sides on this commercial US 12" with a letter or a number. Personally, I do not ever recall seeing this 12" in any of the top record stores in NY City during the 1980s. This is unusual because Atlantic promoted the Face To Face LP through record pools, as well as the promo 12" of a shorter remixed version of Remember that did not have the distinctive intro found on the LP version and bore only a slight resemblance to the full length LP version. Most top NY City DJs played the 6:34 LP version. Not much of a production run on the US Atlantic commercial 12" of Remember b/w Dream On.

I have this Cdn version with the original artwork cover. It features a brunette bent forward,wearing a corset. Her wrists & feet tied together with film reel tape with a metal film reel at her feet.

I REMEMBER (Pun intended) buying the album at Vinyl Mania in NYC. Now I must have the 12 inch version. Truly a masterpiece!

Sweet Jesus! What a song .
Timeless composition with Phat Grooves no matter what year it is.
One of my All Time Favorite Dance Tracks. Heard this recently dropped on a Function 1 System from Teneglia (2012') and it sounded Bangin! One of those "has to be on Wax" records.

One of the finest electronic tunes every made. Takes you in a absolute trance. Perfect tune to finish a long night. Sampled by Mills on 'black is the number' on his classic Purpose Maker series.

It should be noted that the timing on the label is wrong for the A-side. It's the same 4:53 version as on the Atlantic US release.

A major management/marketing mistake by Atlantic. Instead of promoting the full length LP version on the promo 12", they decided to remix it into a shorter commercial version that bears only a slight resemblance to the LP version and does not have the distinctive long intro. What were they thinking? The LP version was a big hit in the top NY City clubs in the early-1980s when it was released. DJ's in-the-know played the full length LP version, not the shorter promo 12" version. At a minimum, Atlantic should have put the full length LP version on the other side of the shorter commercial remix to cover both markets with one 12". Fortunately, Atlantic later released a commercial 12" with the full length LP versions of Remember b/w Dream On, another top track from the Face To Face LP.

Those who love this track should really seek this 12 out as it easily sounds the best and most dynamic of all the single releases and LP appearences. The remix starts out with more of an electro tip and the effects are echoed out a bit in a dub style but it's still somewhat similar to the original. Vocals are much more pronounced in the mix on both versions than its original appearence on "Face To Face."

'Remember' is Gino Soccio's finest and most futuristic moment, and there are many.
This one is an amazing proto-techno disco number with absolutely incredible synth pad coming at the chorus while a distant girl voice is talking over Gino's perfect discopop singing, bringing the dancer into robot heaven.
'Remember' was released in 1982, but the drum-machine programming is so phat and compressed that it puts to shame most of the retrofuturist 'electroclash' records produced after 2000.
Think the club mix of Visage's 'Fade To Grey', think 'Spacer Woman' by Charlie...well 'Remember' delivers the same kind of robotdisco emotion, only PHATTER.
