Far Away - is one of those tracks that I always overlook until I play it and boy oh boy its such a creeper, because of its simplicity, choice of sounds, stripped back and spaced arrangement and this way its just rolls and rolls with its deep searching boom bass, crisp breaks and jazz/funk flavour. It then changes up with its deeper breakdown. It's Yours is by no means a weak tune, its still all the essential elements for a classic Jungle tune, its just outclassed by the A side in my opinion. Just class music from the Doc.

Far away is pure class. At some point in the future I'm sure this will turn into a big money record. It may take a generation or so, but like the soul records of yesteryear that are now changing hands for big bucks, this will have its turn. No doubt. Buy it while it's cheap people...

Quality on both sides, but it’s the way Doc Scott flips the break on It’s Yours that edges it for me - I’m no expert, but I don’t think I’ve heard it chopped quite like that … and the cheeky fanfare sample around 4:47 is one of those “wish he’d dropped it a couple more times, but also glad he didn’t” moments – pure class.

Far Away on first listen has all the components of an anthem - The haunting vocal, the '94 break and chord progressions. And it actually follows through years later! I listen to this and am reminded of how jungle used to be.

Unlike many that have said It's Yours is boring. I love It's Yours more, and not just because of the heavy Amen break! It's fun to dance around to and I can see mixing this with any new track out on the market. I love that. And You'll love it too.

I agree with Pipe regarding "Far Away," but I have to disagree regarding "It's Yours"....the B-side starts out a bit dry and uninteresting, but that makes it excellent for mixing. Check out the tune from the mid-way break, every bit as beautiful and engaging as "Far Away."

This 12" makes me miss the days of the "Double A-side," when many jungle 12"s didn't have a throw-away B-side.

This is without question one of the best 12"s I've ever heard in any genre. Doc Scott is a master of jungle. Though his output is limited, he takes great care to smash it with every release and this one is no exception. "Far Away" is a drum and bass epic, taking you farther away than you can imagine to another dimension of space travel and blissful relaxation. "It's Yours" samples the famous old T LaRock track, and while it isn't quite as good as "Far Away", it's still better than just about any other song in your record box.
