This track, although now gimmicky, proved to be the track that the British youth stood up and said 'Hell Yeah' to American Dance music. House music was widely regarded as a high energy 'gay scene' sound that had little relevance on dance charts, let alone the national chart. However Steve Silk Hurley completely smashed this with his release Jack Your Body, which is now a seminal release, a record which lauched the UK dance scene. It was cool for people to go out and 'jack' to music from the US, forging this important culture and Chicago / Detroit House and Techno. It should not be forgotten the brilliance of this release, it gave meaning to my life and launched a 1000 copies!

Jack Your Body indeed! May it live forever ;-)

I remember hearing it at my local record store and it blew me away.. It was a simple track but the "Jack, Jack, Jack your Body" sample killed it.. I later saw it on a video my cousin sent me from London.. had a Top of the Pops episode on the tape where Jack your Body was No.1 on the UK charts..I think it stayed there for like 8 weeks which back then was unheard of for an underground track to stay at No. 1 for so so long

Why hasn't anybody said anything about one of THE founding records of the original house sound of Chicago ?
I remember hearing this first in my local recordstore, I stared in disbelief at Miss Djax ( who was working behind the counter ) and we played the record at least five times on a row. I think it changed both our lives a bit.
