The booklet of the compilation Maxi Singles 80 Spécial Collectors shows the cover art of this 12", and the version of "Promised Land" on the CD seems to be mastered from vinyl. However, it is labeled as Extended Version and is 5:51, longer than any other release I have seen. Is this 5:51 version on this 12", perhaps misidentified?

I thought Promised Land was a DJ International Records release? I don't see any credits? © Trax Records… Huh?
Can someone tell me why an original DJ International Records release was digitally rereleased by Trax Records only, a rivaling label? I think it's strange that DJ International did not release it in digital format, and Trax Records did (without licensing?) I thought Joe Smooth was on the DJ International Records label camp? So what's the story then; can someone shed some light on this?

I use to prefer having originals, but I have to say that this french press of "Promised Land" is quality ! First you get some wicked 80's style artwork which takes you back in the 80's at first sight. Then, and most important point, the loud press on this vynil !!! way above the original !! As a bonus you get the Freestyle Mix which originally appears on the DJ International 12" Remix only.. I think they've mixed up things a bit though, on my copy, The Freestyle Mix being named The Radio Version & vice versa.

How classic can you go? Do you remember the first time you fell in love? In 1987 I was 11 years old and when I heard this record I knew instantly for sure "I am in love with house music".

Now almost 20 years later this record has not lost any of its vibes and lyrics. Warm sounds are complemented with true vocals that still are meaningfull in many ways.

How many records in this genre deal with social issues? Besides "Joe Smooth's Promised Land" I can also think about the work of "Inner City" and "Rise from the Grave" composed by "Phuture aka DJ Pierre".

This record is one for my funeral.

Complete sacrilege!! I am a firm believer of the saying "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". The original of this is the don of all vocal house tracks and should never be messed with. If you weren’t about when the original was released hunt one down and you'll see what I mean!

Almost 20 years after its initial impact, this record is still serving its life sentence in my record crate, all chances of parole out the window. Unlike many of its conteporaries, it will never see what that room in the back of my garage called "The Archives" looks like. 'The Promised Land' is one of those increasingly rare moments you'd look forward to at 8:00am when you're once again level with the physical universe and dreading the sound of chirping birds. Somehow - some way or another - Joe Smooth makes it all... smooth again...

... of course, those angels that come down and spread their wings like doves help him out with the feat.
