I assume the guitar riffs in the intro were influenced by "Earth, Wind & Fire - Sun Goddess" (1974). Sound so similar.

I spoke to Zaf recently who is the man behind the new version and also the guy selling the original. He told me the repress is slightly different to preserve the integrity of the original.

Also just noticed the only person selling an original copy on Discogs - for $3,000+ (!) - also says the repress isn't a repress but an edit (they call it a "lame edit"). Again ... anyone know how different the 'new' version is?

Just ordered mine from the UK (I'm in the US.) Juno sold out immediately and had it listed as "1 per customer." I noticed one seller on Discogs saying that the repress has been edited by Zaf - anyone know about that?

Great record. I wrote the "B" side song "Nonstop ti the Top" and played guitar and bass on that track. Martin was a beautiful person with a great spirit about him. He left behind a wonderful family. I had the opportunity to perform these songs with Martin at a couple of big business conventions. People just loved the uplifting message behind these songs. And fun, they were to perform live. You can reach me on Facebook through my band that I hope you would Like and Share.

As a records collector, music lover, this is indeed, one of the most beautiful pieces of rare Soul/Disco 12'' I ever listened to.
I just wish I could own, or even afford a copy of this precious record.(If only a copy would became available)
Apparently the very last one was sold for around 2000 dollars.
This is surely one of a kind 12'' and the one we have been waiting for years to be possibly re-pressed?
I am sure this 12'' was in a very limited pressed copies, anyway..

Anyone who voted this record 1/5 is either 1) a jealous hater. Or 2) has no soul. Either way I don't need to know you
