Cynthia Manley - Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You (Remixes)
The Frankie Valli classic has been redone for the dancefloor by singer Cynthia Manley. She was once the lead vocalist for Hi Nrg/Disco act Boys Town Gang in the 1980s. They released a cover of this song as well, but with another vocalist. Paul Goodyear, PnP, and Sinclair & Chatters provide the remixes. Paul Goodyear's classic-sounding straightforward funky house mix retains some of the chords and keys of the original. Phillip Mezzatesta delivers 3 different mixes. The 1015 Folsom mix is a peak hour slice of modern Disco while the Trocadero Delight mix has a harder bassline. The Endup mix has just a small sprinkling of vocals and is mostly instrumental. Sinclair & Chatters' mix has a nice Disco-House flavor. Cynthia does a great job on the vocals giving it a soulful quality.
