'Thank Ya' contains a sample of Cheryl Lynn's 'You Saved My Day'. 'Do Do It' is a reworking of Eddie Grant's 'Time Warp'. 'Turn It' is influenced by the Issac Hayes release, 'I Can't Turn Around' and has many similarities with J.M. Silk's 'I Can't Turn Around'. 'Dig I Da-Dig I Da' lifts or copies the synth line from either Jamie Principles 'Your Love' or Electra's 'Feels Good'.

A1. 'Thank Ya' is based on (or covers) Cheryl Lynn's classic 1978 Disco track ' You Saved My Day'. A massive, massive track in the Chi Disco scene.

B1.'Do It, Do It' is based on(or covers) an amazing Disco-Not-Disco/Pre-House track called 'Time Warp'. Written and produced by Eddie Grant.

Damn it! I didn't realize this info was already mentioned in the notes section above. Oh well lol .

This is one of the most interesting underappreciated 80's Trax releases I've come across.
Side A admittedly does get props as a classic Trax cut, but the B side is what makes this 12" especially interesting. Three tracks that are riffs on other house tracks of that time with different vocals and slightly different sounds that mirror the original. They're sort of re-interpretations of popular tracks including stuff by Mr. Fingers as well as Eddy Grant I believe?
