Gloria Jones: Tainted Love (All-Nighter Mix) (Inferno, 1982, 12″)

Can one have too much of a good thing? I picked this 12″ back when I didn’t own Jones’s original 7″ yet and at the time I figured, “hey, everyone loves this song but the original is so short, why not extend it to nearly five minutes?”

Then I started to play it out aaaaaaand maybe it runs just a bit long. You can only lead a crowd through that chorus so many times before you start to feel the itch to mix in some Supremes. Maybe?
