I'm glad to see that this record has gained a wider acceptance as being
one of the best and most important early Detroit techno releases from
that era in time. I randomly acquired my copy out of a clearance bin for
25 cents around 1992. I hadn't the faintest clue who or what it was, but
It ended up being one of my favorite records to mix with because the
rhythm tracks go really well with just about anything you can match
it up with. In fact at one point I remember just leaving this disc on
one of my decks, and then literally proceeding to mix every single
12" I owned at the time with it just to see which ones sounded
the very best with it. Probably one of the very first DJ tools of
techno beats that ever existed. I rate it at 10 out of a 1 - 10 rating scale.

I've been into jungle/drum and bass since its inception and was a fan of Dillinja's Deadly Deep Subs but it wasn't until someone reviewing that tune spotted that it was a *cough* total rip off of this.
I'm ashamed to say that I had heard of the reese bassline and alex reece (obviously) but never put 2 + 2 together?!
D'oh.
I feel that as mentioned this record is truly a masterpiece and a building block of drum and bass.
It still sounds fresher than most dance music today.
Edit:Thanks for the replies - I know that Kevin Saunderson and Alex Reece are two different people but after hearing this tune it was clear to me that the Reese bassline came from this tune. It would have been impossible to have sampled Pulp Fiction for Dillinja's - DDS as it was released a year later.
I was just saying that I had heard of Alex Reece plus the Reese bassline and didn't make the connection before. i.e. that he was influenced by Kevin Saunderson.

Just want another chance without a great many people realizing it is probably as important to the genre of drum and bass as say, the winstons "Amen brother".

Because contained within is the original source sample of the Reese bassline.

As a techno record in its own right, this is frankly fucking enormous. The 909 drums sound like they were recorded in an aircraft hanger, Master reese's whispering vocals are fairly fitting, but it is the bass that sends this track into another dimension.
bounce across to version 3 of just want and you find what is more like a bass-a-pella and right there is that solo'd bass.

One of my first recollections of this being used in any drum and bass record has to be Terrorist's (Ray keith + Nookie) Renegade
on moving shadow which funnily enough is basically this bass sample and-you guessed it--the Amen brother break!!

And remember, This is a record from 1988--when it was all just house music, but man, we really are talking blueprint of techno here. Even some Transmat records (dare i say it) never ever sounded this good.

The master Reese undeniably pioneering.
Without some records, things would have been so different.
