Here is a dance classic that I have recently re-discovered recently. I have heard it before on some mix by either from Francois K or Danny Krivit as a speeded up snippet and but never from beginning to end. So here is the full glorious unaltered version for you to enjoy. Nancy Martin's actual name is Nancy Catherine Julia Martinez and was born in Rosemount, Montreal. She studied classical piano at a young age and singing during high school. Nancy worked at clubs and parties before becoming a background singer. "Can't Believe" was Nancy's first single and it was released in 1982 under the alias Nancy Martin. The same year she released another single, "I"m Gonna Get Your Love" under another alias, "Jade". Both singles received moderate success in her hometown of Canada. Her first album was released in 1983 titled Lay It Down featuring her hit single "So Excited". Ms. Martinez went on to become well known singer among club circles during the mid to late '80s. She still continues to make music.
