℗ © 1992 Shelter Records

The first release on the label then called Shelter Records used to be very hard to find. The original label is made of pink & white like the SHL-1002 and SHL-1003 releases (all distributed by Polar Records). SHL-1001 does appear on the label but on side A FM-1001 is engraved and on side B, EM-1001 is engraved. This was pressed by Europadisk NY. They also released copies in plain pink with EM & FM crossed out and replaced by the true catalog number SHL.
Represses were then launched by another pressing plant, Tippy HitFactory. Those are the copies we usually find today.

BPM is not provided on the record.
A1: 120 | A2: 120
B1: 121 | B2: 121

Amazed this is so cheap to buy compared to some other Kerri releases. It’s from his early more sparse inconceivably deep phase (1990-94) that also gave rise to the Basement RedLight & Atmosphere e.p.s. Deep pumping baseline and dubby keyboard riff and some soaring vocals. Recommended
