A wonderful, punchy, piano house record. I've never stopped playing it over the years. Pressed at 45 rpm, it's nice and loud and will house U and your dancers.

Love, love this record! Great memories of playing this virtually every set I ever did, I will never sell my copy! Check Chez Damier Can U Feel it for a similar vibe, and of course MAW's dub of St Etienne's Only Love Can Break Your Heart, for me the blue print of NY deep house.

A classic then and now. Ralphi has put out a load of great, great tunes, but there's a few standouts and here's one of them. "An Instrumental Need" is based on "I Need You" by Nikita Warren, and if its shuffled beats and simple but effective two-chord piano motif doesn't get you moving, then nothing will. Some layers of house organ add a dose of extra funkiness, and a cute solo around the 4th minute top off what is a must-have for any discerning house fan.

The B-side Flaco Ritmo is a slightly heavier, techno-styled piece. Huge kick, big synth chords and more organ taken over by a dark 303 riff. Very tasty!
