This has to be one of the finest tracks of its generation. Goes largely unsung, as with most Weatherall productions, never getting the acclaim it deserves. Cannot understand why some shite Detroit track goes for £100 when this doesn't, what a fickle lot we are. The remix is....enough said

Memories of Pete Tong playing this on the Essential Selection in late 93. David Holmes remix was the mix i heard initially.

Emotive stuff indeed.

It's a shame that his finest moment was also his most rotten. 'His' biggest track is also his biggest lie, and it will probably haunt him posthumously.

David Holmes remix takes it somewhere else entirely though especially when it breaks down into what sounds like an Orange Day parade at the end...

This track is amazing and has much better production qualities but it is a straightforward rip off of the original and it seems a bit shit not properly giving credit to the originator

This was one of weatherall's finest moments, there are so many others.

Yes, its a total classic, and yes, Its loved by every one (myself included).
At the time of release it reminded everyone that house could be an art form and not just a thing to dance to in clubs.
Weatherall pointed the way to the original spirit of early house, but kept it fresh and modern.

...but lets not forget that its basically a (better produced, better realized) version of this bit of Old Skool-ness;
The true story Of house music (Nu Groove).
Its the track called "New Age Bonus Track.

An electronic masterpiece and Andy Weatherall's finest moment. What a piece of music. This is electronic music that is almost Classical in it's sound. Incredibly moving, hypnotic and jaw drppingly beautiful. A legendary record that is one of the most essential pieces of Electronic music from the 90s. Respect Mr Weatherall.
