This is a great track. It brings back lots of memories for me. I have the red and yellow versions of the 12''. Better than that, though - I own the Roland S-10 Sampling keyboard that created it, and some of the actual samples used on it.

I also have a copy of this release, from BigWave (via BMG) , "made in France" .
Great tunes, both of them.

Many copies of this record sold in australia, including my copy, have the same cat #, same track listing on the record etc, but don't actually have high on life on the record itself. Even though it's listed on the record cover.

It is generally thought that Father Forgive Them by Holy Noise was the first dance tune to sample the Amen break. However, I would like to make a case for High On Life (Live From Manchester) being the first. This was released very early in 1990 & it must be a good shout for being out prior to Holy Noise. As for the tune itself, it's an extremely high quality B-side with elements of jazz guitar & alto sax (think it's a saxophone), Amen break & deep bass. One tune sadly missing on YouTube - someone upload it please.

On this record there is not only the drummer getting wicked. It is the saxophone and the chorus effected bassline that makes me driving wicked. The extended version includes a very deep bass too what gives the track a very complete sounding.

This track is miles ahead of his time and fits in a house set as well as in a techno or techno-pop set.

This track represents the sound of 1990 very good and gives the audience a positve feeling.
