This is something that is forgotten and should have received much more attention. I mean the Quietman remix which is excellent!

The original and Waldo remix are both sounding pretty silly now but did make a point at those times, however Quietman reveals much more complex and sophisticated proghouse version. The track is based on Leonardo di Caprios shouting from the Romeo and Juliet movie adaptation about being the Fortunes Fool. That also sums up the fate of this track. It wasn´t licensed to many compilations or dj mixes as you can see from the Discogs.

I´m not sure what happened. Was it that this was released during time when there was insane amounts of progressive house tracks flung out to orbit or perhaps the fact that this is the second last release of the Lush imprint and they ran out of marketing budget?

It still has one of the most beautiful melody running through it completed with fine acid line in the middle. The mastering is a bit stale. I wish someone would polish the sounds and make a decent remix of it.
