The main synth sample comes from a slowed-down string segment in Sequal - Not Too Late To Dub (1985).

The synth from A Day in The Life is sampled from what record played backwards??? I forget the name.

This published one classic of Todd Terry made him to the "master of sampling" in house music. His most important release so far.
