In 1978, studio band Phreek recorded the original version of Weekend as a promotional release on Atlantic Recods. Phreek was a disco band created by influential dance music arranger and producer Patrick Adams. The band included singer and songwriter Leroy Burgess - who wrote the song. Phreek's Weekend was never available commercially, but it was getting played heavily in clubs by DJ's such as New York's legendary DJ Larry Levan. In the early 1980's, the co-owner of Sleeping Bag Records asked Levin if he was interested in recording a new version of Weekend, and giving it a proper release. The group Class Acrion was formed to record the song, and it was released in 1983 featuring a mix by Levin on one side, and a mix by Morales and Munzibai (M&M) on the other side.
