Honored by: DG
 
Prior to its inclusion on the "Immaculate Collection," "Into the Groove" was available in the U.S. only as the B-side of the 12" single "Angel." It reached #1 for five weeks on the Hot Dance Music/Maxi-Singles chart as a two-sided entry. In several other countries it was released as a single in its own right and raced to #1. The original vinyl version clocks at 4:40. This CD version seems to be the same one to me.

In 2008 the Illegal Records label released a compilation of all the mastermixes of Steve Stein (Steinski), including this amazing tour de force of the art of mixing, done with Douglas DiFranco (Double Dee). Dave Marsh tells the whole story behind this track in his book, "The Heart of Rock & Soul," where he ranks it 212 out of 1001.
