RIP Scott. Was so sad to hear that you had passed so young. I knew you in San Francisco in the early 90's, but I really never did know you. This song gives me a little more understanding of your essence. Beautiful song.

I was wondering where I heard the vocal before and its a straight rip from Dear Boy ‎– GreyClouds from 1992

Although I can identify this as an anthem, this style of electronic music was not my 'cup of tea'. However, I kept this solely based on the cover. This has got to be one of the best covers ever!

How this has no comments I'll never know so I feel as I must leave one.
This is a track that simply defines an era. In Orlando, FL where I'm from, Raincry was an anthem. For a song that is almost ambient in it's washy pads and haunting vocals it certainly could bring a dance floor to life. The main breakbeat loop is instantly recognizable and has been sampled in many other tracks. Not sure where the original is from.
That said DON'T sleeop on "Daylight" on the flipside. An equally amazing lesson in beautiful female vocals and groovetastic breaks. A song that definitely makes you feel like you're in a dream.
A must have record for any collector of fine old school dance music.

Excellent excellent record! This is *exactly* what I think of when I think of "trance". Wonderful ambient washes mixed with hip hop beats. Essential!
