Unbelievable, why block a track released by the artist prior to sample clearance? This is not a bootleg but true pre release. Guess big labels wanted it blocked, pisses me off though. Discogs is not what it used to be!

Shame it’s blocked. In some ways it just adds to the mystery and value. Thanks for all the info in the thread which confirms my copy is genuine and not a bootleg. I used to play the B side more anyway!

This is the original pressing before it was released commercially as already stated. Such a shame that Discogs have decided to block it for sale from the marketplace!

has this been blocked because they never had clearance for the floyd samples?

Why has this release been blocked from being sold on Discogs?. This is the original copy from 1991 not a bootleg!

Huge - huge tune, played everywhere and if you have a listen you will see why - this track has everything !!
The bassline drops the track, then the kick, in comes the percussion, then the big guitar rift, synths, dropping out to an awesome acid rift & if that isn't enough it drops out for the piano & vocals !
One of the biggest tunes in its day with big crossover appeal.
A real treat - I still love listening to this track, so many happy memories.

aside from the vocal sample from pink floyd at the beginning, this sounds identical to the commercial release to me. what am i missing?

BEWARE of copies (Bootlegs) going round. They are good copies as the detail is nearly correct down to the enscribing of DESA - 3 on the 'run-off', they are correct down to the 'B' Side, the only way you can tell they are not Original is if you have an original 1991 copy. The way to tell is that the Vinyl they use is smooth all the way to the hole, the original isn't it has two 'drops'(or different levels) in the vinyl where the Label (White) is. There has been alot of effort put into the copies (bootlegs) but you can tell, look at the picture on this site (Discogs).

Well blow me down, what a fine example of acid house this is then. Some nice pianos, nice break, THAT guitar riff that Pink Floyd wouldn't clear and a very nice use of the Afrika Bambattaa lyric. This still sounds fresh today as it did back then which is the mark of a great record. This is what was special about the rave scene, these tunes were made by ravers, for the ravers. The money was second. Also, sampling but thats another story completely.

Its always great to pick up these original promo's from the days when anything went with samples, this outstanding release obviously features a cheeky sample from Pink Floyd's track of the same name. My copy has a nice hand written comment on the sleeve "From Desa to Jon Wiliams - here is the new single - let it rip in dallas" From Desa and Nick Murphy July 1991.
