FAN-MADE REMIX OF M.C. SAR & THE REAL McCOY'S "MAKE A MOVE"

Way back when Yahoo Groups was the pre-Facebook and Myspace, along with the Supremes 70's Reissues group I'd began/moderated, also had another one for my favorite Eurodance group, Real McCoy.  It was just a small group with a few still-"rabid"-after-the-90's fans, and even better, the group founder O-jay, had joined and later told us a LOT of unknown stuff.  Like it wasn't Patsy Petersen singing on their Grammy-winning CD from 1994, Another Night - but an uncredited singer named Karin Kasar (similar to how big gull Martha Wash sang the female vocals in all of C+C Music Factory AND Black Box's early 90's hits, even though the groups were fronted with a slimmer and younger woman, or what they call in the music industry, puppets.  

One of the fans who joined, under the DJ alias Wild Ace, had remixed "Make A Move" even better than the original (I think by using an acappella version from a 12" single, performing the music himself).  Before Real McCoy came out of nowhere around 1993-94, along with MANY other Eurodance groups appearing all over America at that time, in Germany/Europe, they were known as M.C. Sar & The Real McCoy.  The early beginnings pre-McCoy, when O-jay was a professional breakdancer in Germany, and later formed the group in its' first of many incarnations.  On their first international/American album, their name was shortened to just Real McCoy.  

Even though Patsy didn't record a single note on the Another Night album (was with the group otherwise, in videos, etc.), this was her real vocals on "Make A Move".  When they were M. C. Sar, four or more female singers would each single on a particular album cut or two, making McCoy back then more like an organization like the disco group CHIC.
