I'm personally disappointed with this repress as its not exactly the same as the original . I have the original from 1995 and it dosent have the same life from the tracks and someone correct me if im wrong but the tracks are put together differently . I bought this for the purpose of saving the original some wear.

Great record - I got mine around '96 in a Virgin Records sale for 99p - insert smug emoji here.

Detroitism is up there with the best House tracks of all time. No really, it is that brilliant.

Perfect house music, deep but never dull and still sounding incredibly fresh. Every house lover needs a copy of this. Someone needs to reissue it though as it is usually pricey as hell. I lucked in and got a decent copy on e-bay for £10.00. Good luck finding yours...

Timeless classic deep house record...I've heard most of Glenn's early to mid period records and this one is my all around favorite, which is saying a lot. There is definitely a hint of Detroit techno influence on this record. The tracks sound very distinctly different from one another, yet all have this common thread of incredible deepness and maximum street credibility. There was a great 1996 sequel on Cajual almost as good as this one (but a little harder) and a 3rd record in the GU Essentials series on Dust Traxx.
