CD and artwork state "Lead vocal performance by Loleatta Holloway". These sample vocals are only used on tracks 2 and 4. Tracks 1 and 3 utilise alternative vocals.

Don't know where I heard this, or, I may have even read it in 'some' dance magazine from the late 80's, It may not even be true, but the story goes something like this..
'Ride On Time' was just a plain piano track with no vocals, and no title yet, and Davoli was the resident DJ at Starlight, one night while he was playing at Starlight, he dropped this piano track and decided to mix an accapella over the top and cut it up, which incidently was 'Loleatta Holloway - Love Sensation' (probably taken from.. Various - Acapella Anonymous Vol. #1 from the 80's). The crowd went mental and hey presto, 'Ride On Time' was born.
I hope the tale is true, its a nice little story to one of the best Italo House tracks ever produced.

One of my favourite old skool classix! Just goes to show that no matter how old, no matter how cheesey the retro beasts such as this can still produce a dancefloor full of 'chesire cat' grins! This tune is such a hot temptation that just drops right in. One the hip wigglers ever made! Deconstruction is a dynamite label for producing some of the best blasts from past. Unbelieveably, i picked up this record in a good condition for a mere 19p, BARGAIN! Time won't take my love away!!!!

The name 'Ride on time' came about because the members of 'Black Box' are Italian and didn't have the best grasp of English.
The vocals which were used on the song are from 'Loleatta Holloway - Love Sensation'
The band members were not aware that the lyrics were 'your right on time' not 'your ride on time'
I think the bands English must have been pretty bad as 'your ride on time' does not make any sense at all.
'Black Box' have talked about this in many interviews, and they say they can laugh about it now.

One of the tunes that embodies the late 80's Hacienda sound. Mike Pickering would play this tune out at the Hacienda all the time and the crowd would go nuts. Certfied classic. Don't let the cover art of the subsequent releases scare you away.

This is the UK 12" that features the re-recorded vocals - that was done for legal reasons. Otherwise the tracks are absolutely identical throughout to the original release - PT43056, but minus the original Loleatta samples, and in comparison, rubbish.

This is a good Italo style house release... "Ride On Time" smacks of the eighties, but in the best possible way... the drums and vocal style are classic. "Ghost Box" is way downtempo with an "elegant" sort of sound... the sort of thing that would be the last track at a party before the last couple of people went home.
