"Here in Detroit it is very difficult to fill the void left when Motown headed for sunny California. Multitudes of talented musicians, singers, writers, vocalists and other people associated with the music industry were abandoned. Their hopes and dreams were left to die also. We here at Happy Records are determined to keep those dreams alive on our productions from Detroit because without hope none of us have anything. We will be featuring various artists on our productions from Detroit. We hope you can hear the emotion in our records because this is not a hobby for us it is our destiny. Thank you for buying Happy Records."

Re-released in 1996 on the Soul City label (Don't You Want It?).
Re-released in 2002 on Underground Resistance (Don't You Want It).
In 2007 a bootleg appeared (Don't You Want It) with the same label design, but not mastered at NSC.

Weird how there are so many copies in good shape and it's still expensive as hot shit. Super classic track anyway.

I remember the day i found this in a record shop. I was so happy to finally hold it in my hands. That was the happiest moment for me in terms of buying a record. This is definitely a must have!

Any word on when this will be repressed, is UR one or Happy Trax version?

this track nearly has me in tears. tears of happiness but also of (almost) forgotten times. back in the day you'd hear this sort of track in the evening on Kiss FM as well as on the dance-floor. Stunning.

It's back. What a joyous slab of house music . The soul city pressing I have is good but this latest underground resistance reissue (2012) is so solid - that kick drum is punching the air. Got a feeling this reissue will probably be the best thing many house-heads will pick up this year but there is no doubt it is going to fly - so if you're debating it, stop pissing around and get one NOW.

Repress is available from Submerge for $5.99.

An absolute gem of a track. I only discovered Happy Records recently, Mad Mikes excursions in into deep house show a different side to UR and I am loving it.

Don't You Want It is head and shoulders above the rest in the staple, its one of those tracks where everything seems to align to create a fantastic harmony... the build is long and great in the mix, the percussion of the synths, the chords and Davinas deep house crescendo of wild and positive lyrics just create a fantastically complete house track. Its demands high prices, but in my opinion its easily worth it for such a seminal track.

Its a winner for sure.
