Such wonderful music! There can't be more soul in a House record ever. But so expensive... So, anyone in the mood to trade this for one or two other good records, rather than selling it for money? Gimme a sign, I got great wax to offer, also beyond what I have for sale, check my collection!

This particular pressing has a good downbeat style on the b side, kdj 23b, which samples a Carl Craig track 'suspiria' from his 'more songs about food and revolutionary art' lp. It's worth a check if you enjoy his slower grooves.

Time for another nerdy annotation: there are four pressings of this release: 21A/21B, 21A/9B, 21A/23B, and 21A (one-sided), all of which obviously differ only in their B-side. 21B appeared as "The Set Up" on "Forevernevermore", 9B is the only track without a Prince sample from KDJ 9, and has also been featured as a B-side to KDJ 10, and 23B is an awesome original that you really want to hear. 21A/9B and 21A/23B were, as far as I know, only distributed in Europe, especially Germany and Holland.

This is one of those records that absolutely kills people. If you ever want to see a dancefloor spontaneously combust, or see a dancefloor completely rejuvinated. o impact This record will do just that. I've had people run in from rooms away when I've dropped this one. I've had people jumping out of their body to this record.
Original pressings include the set up, originally released on KDJ 9 u can dance...
more recent ones include a blank side.
