"Body Party" is a megamix by the late Patrick Cowley but he was not credited on this label. He was credited for this on the Creole Label CR 12-173 (from 1979 which is the same mix).
One of the very first Cowley remixes.

While the entire album of Brenda Mitchell was mixed by the apparently unknown John Custer, the 12'' mixes of "Body Party" were done by the late, great Patrick Cowley in what appears to be one of his earliest releases. Previously, Cowley had done one of his megamixes for another Pierre Jaubert production, Michele's "Disco Dance." While this isn't extended like "Disco Dance" was, the shooting synthesized pulses and swirling space effects of Cowley's synthesizer overlays practically send the whole thing into outer space, heightening the forbidding sexiness of the track, giving it a whole new forcefulness.. Done the same year as Sylvester's classic "You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)," Cowley's overlays on here are remarkably similar to those on Sylvester's classic track. Although it's a much more integral part of "..Mighty Real," some of the same effects and sounds are evident here, with both sharing a particularly similar electronic pulse. Curiously, Cowley was credited on the main disco mix with Jon Randazzo, who was apparently a DJ at a premier San Francisco gay venue at the time called The City Disco (where Patrick himself had also worked) and if this Disconet newletter is to be believed, something of a mentor to him. Not sure if this is Randazzo's only credit on a record, but so far it's the only one I've ever come across.. Although I'm not sure if there were any other 12'' pressings that did so, the UK 12'' of "Body Party" on the Creole label was the only one that I've found to give credit to both Cowley and Randazzo for the disco mix. Not sure if this was also the case for any of the other 12" releases, but after coming across the UK pressing, I later found out that my Canadian 12'' was mislabeled, with the label listing the credits and time of the John Custer album mix, but the grooves pressed with the Cowley/Randazzo disco mix. Curiously also, the UK 12'' also included an alternate mix/edit on the B-side which doesn't actually credit anyone for the mix, but gives a shared production credit between Jaubert and Cowley. Running a little shorter at some five or so minutes, the alternate mix is somewhat less spacious using more of the vocals, including some ad-libs not present in any of the other versions..

the French 12" - was that the Cowley mix too? Cheers ;)
