poor repress,the bah bah song especially is awful......Forever mix 1+2 just about pass but have nowhere near the depth of sound as the original.....disappointing after spending £18 on the thing.

Out of curiosity, can anyone attest to the sound quality on this version compared to the original pressing? It all sounds a bit muddy to me, but I don't have an original to A/B with, so it's only speculation... I'm happy to own a copy of Forever, either way.

Been obsessed with "Forever" since the first time I heard it played at Motor in Detroit. This is one of those timeless records that fits well into any type of set, and it's the perfect fusion of sounds from Chicago and Detroit. Snagged my copy from a friend when he sold off his collection in bulk. Don't think he realized some of the gems he had in there.

When I discovered this record, my approach to music changed...Played too many times from 1993 to eternity. Respect

The first time I heard about Chez Damier was on a gorgeous compilation called "X-Mix 4: Beyond The Heavens" mixed by Dave Angel, years ago. The tune in question, "Help Myself", was made by Chez in partnership with Carl Craig, and had a very unique approach, with a funky bassline & vocal sample combination, and (suddenly) a huge transformation on its drop out including beautiful pianos and atmospheric strings, in a sense of pure emotion - a kind of ensemble you would say 'a step further'.

Not long after that, I discovered on another compilation ("Trance Lunar Paradise") by the same author (Dave Angel); the tune in question, "Serious Groove", was mixed with "Help Myself" (Chez gotta thank Dave Angel for being such a great supporter of his music to helping to make his name well-known on several places on the quality-dance music scene from Europe back then). "Serious Groove" was in fact the name of the label through where the tune in question was released on the year of 1993; its true name was actually "Forever Mix" on Classic EP, which gave place a couple of years after to "Forever Monna" - the same moment when I found out it was made by Chez Damier with Stacey Pullen's collaboration, another of his huge partnerships. Just like "Help Myself", "Forever Monna" was all emotion (and at the same time) got that Detroit spirit with Soulful strings chords made by futuristic hi-tech synthesized timbres. There was a tiny difference on the tune's arrangements on the "Classic EP" and on "Forever Monna"'s, the previous one being a little better.
Absolutely quintessential tune.
