Anyone have the original as well as the 1999 reissue? Please let me know if the Small Black Church is different only in timing (5.58 vs 9.47) or has been slightly remixed as well.

Moodymann that Detroit continues to embody the charm of the house, along with Theo Parrish, Kenny Dixon Jr. His own label, glue it back issues press KDJ. Published by KDJ / Winter breeze from the previous Soul City "I feel joy" B-1 from the Soul City as "Yesterdays" title that was presented at A-2 acquisition. Also, the track warmed up by a hat, live percussion, mixed into cheers, and invites the world of dreams with the synthesis of a ray extending toward the sky. Work with co-star Theo Parrish "Lake Shore Drive" B-2 acquisition.

What a record. The A track, Inspirations From A Small Black Church On The Eastside Of Detroit is a grimy gospel/disco masterpiece. It's dirty gospel house and that's kinda fun. I've seen people dismiss KDJ as just a guy who samples great records, and that's an observation based in truth. But his ideas are unique, his production is outstanding and it's on display here; the layers of sounds are the crazy work of a mad man genius. B sides are more toned down but also top notxh. B1 Track is lighter, features nice, soothing female vocal work. B2 Theo Parrish track Lake Shore Drive is excellent. B2 is a driving track with great percussive work... theo's minor key DJ mix style production (crossfader, quick EQ). He's got these dancing symbols on the high end, I could probably type all day about it but let's leave it at it's just a great track. Work seeking out the original pressing.

One of the greatest records to ever be released on Moodymann's imprint KDJ. A truly outstanding piece of Detroit that still lives on strongly to this day. I still play the tracks in many of my sets, a legendary 12"!

The repressing of this record, IIRC, subtracts "I Feel Joy" and Theo's track and adds tracks from the only always-in-print KDJ record, his 12" for Mike Banks on Soul Sounds.
