One of the most important Chicago house records that started the fire. Jamie had a huge influence on the development of Chicago house music. I still get goosebumps hearing this.

Jamie's first and best track IMHO, although 'Your Love' obviously comes a very close second (if not joint first).

BTW, for some great history into this track and other Jamie Principle highlights be sure to check this great article:http://www.theransomnote.com/music/house-hunting/house-hunting-67-jamie-principle/

Props and respect to House Hunting creator (or should that be hero?) Aiden.

Yep this is a great cut! The voice reminds me of "Bowie" & has some stellar added electro/house elements. Very dance-able!

Jamie Principle's first commercial record. VERY influential at the time. The track was played from tapes and reels before it was released in '85. After this record house producers started to expand their production horizons to more that just beat tracks. This record has some influences from early italo disco, but it also has a deeper side to it, making it sound totally unique and refreshing, like House was back then.
