    Absolute classic house track, one of the best starts of a record ive ever heard. Frankies 12"club classic vocal mix. Buy the EP just for that mix but theres many mixes so search for the Frankies class vocal mix which is over 8 minutes long and you cant go wrong. If your buying a 2nd hand EP it will have been cained lol anyways. AM PM brought a cd out in 98 i think which is the one you want and its a quid!

      Listening to this record gives u a insight from where the "real" House comes from: the black community in the USA. This classic remix provided by Frankie Knuckles is one of his best ever in my humble opinion. This one is absolutely incredible: the slow & long dramatic intro with only the grand piano playing and Ann Nesby providing the vocals, the beats which are oh so funky & groovin' and the total structure of the remix makes it so.

      This all combined with a really strong song (original production provided by Jam & Lewis) and those heaven-sent gospel-vocals makes me aware that House is a spiritual thing. Timeless masterpiece of REAL music: 10 outta 10.
