Don't think this has been mentioned but the very first copies of this had a Moodymann sticker on a generic sleeve.

What a tune !
First heard this on a Paul strobe set back in the day on flex 103.6
Love the intro, one of the best records ever made.

Doing yourself a disservice if you don't buy the original copy with the B side on it - One Nite In The Disco sped up just makes you move, and Shades of 78 great simple track. And of course Tribute. Happy I bought this when I did, prices are hiked!

Tribute! is an incredible piece of music and one of the best, true deep house tracks I've ever heard. It has a timeless factor to it, and is definitely a high energy, upbeat take on the style. There's something about those chords and the cohesiveness of the percussion, not to mention the superior production quality. I remember the first time I heard Tribute! and my mind being blown, I had to put it on repeat several times and couldn't stop dancing... yeah, maybe it's just my personal taste, or maybe it's one of the best house tracks of all time - that's up to you to decide.

Excellent rare piece of wax, and very sought after. Moodymann at his best (in my opinion) with his A-side deep house track 'The Day We Lost The Soul / Tribute' containing some brilliantly constructed Marvin Gaye samples i.e. "Whats Goin On" sampled and repitched, with a massive intro of various speeches about Marvin Gaye. On the flip, the floor filler "One Nite In A Disco", which is different to his usual productions... with this track Moodymann samples and cuts up 'Sister Sledge - He's The Greatest Dancer'. Alot different to the mountain of other productions that have sampled 'He's The Greatest Dancer' over the years, Moodymann gives it his touch and makes it DJ friendly. Shades Of '78' is another cool track that opens brilliantly sampling Teddy Pendergrass. Three excellent tracks on one piece of wax. A Serious moodyman gem!

An outstanding record I found this sitting in a seconds bin to my amazement. It was leant out to a friend and due to the thin pressing he some how managed to snap it. Having had the taste of this I now have to go out and buy it again a must have in any house lovers collection.

An absoloute classic and one of those records that really has a time... 3am to be precise. Fantasic deep house with a hypnotic bassline laced with Marvin Gaye samples. The intro is a montage of radio clips describing the shock at Marvins death, including a clip of famous radio jock Frankie Crocker. Never ever mix this record, always stop the previous one and play straight from the intro, as the drop is fantastic when the actual track kicks in. Classic KDJ.

I paid more for this record than any other record I own. I got a sealed copy, which of course I opened and now play out. Aside from the classic A side, the B side cuts are very nice. "One Night in the Disco" is essentially an edit of Sister Sledge's "He's the Greatest Dancer" and the other is a another disco edit sounding jam that I can't place the sample from. No matter, all three cuts are outstanding examples of the early Moodymann production style.
