Fingers Inc. ‎– Can You Feel It

Genre:

Year:
Notes:
The original instrumental version of this song was released on Mr. Fingers' 3 track EP in 1986.

Some DJs used it as a backing track for the "in the beginning there was Jack" sermon from Rhythm Controll - My House (1987), or for Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech, leading to these 1988-1989 releases of the mash-ups.

The release on Desire Records has the Chuck Roberts vocal plus the sermon as an acapella. The release on Jack Trax has the King speech, along with the original instrumental and a previously unreleased mix with soulful vocals by Fingers Inc.'s Robert Owens.

This release is NOT a mispress. Desire as a label would frequently re-use old covers and miss printed covers. Any original white labels and promos on Desire SHOULD have a recycled inside out label from another release, I have plenty.

Hi I think there is an error in the order of the cuts on the B side, it does not correspond to the order of the photograph shown on the B side. Also, I do not know what the difference is with Fingers Inc. - Can You Feel It.

The vocal version featured on this 12" is not the one with the classic "let there be House" speech. Instead, it contains a different song performed by Robert Owens on top of the instrumental.

B side contains the standard instrumental version.

So is the "vocal" version on this release (A1) the version with Robert Owens? A bit confusing, with the youtube-videos and all...

The audio quality of this release is terrible, the songs sound compressed and the audio is unbalanced. The balancing issues are most noticeable with tracks 1 and 4.

This has got to be the worst reissue ever released of such a land mark classic, the audio is compressed so much it sounds like "can you feel it underwater", Terrible sound quality :(

Was there a repress in 2001? Maybe some missing boxes discovered? I got one in 2001 new at a store.

The "Jack" intro is not on this vinyl !!! The acapella (B2) is the Martin Luther King speech (I Have A Dream). B1 is the "Can You Feel It" track, but again, with the M.L.K. speech in it.

The only vocal version that was done by Larry Heard was the one with Robert Owens. That Chuck Roberts stuff was done by the Hotmix 5 guys or some others. To me the original instrumental version is the one and only version, done sometime in 1984.
