    A NYC CLUB BANGER....PERIOD!! This is now one of those "Oh, Shit, this is my JAM" records!

      'You Can't Turn Me Away' is a groove, but I'm afraid 'Give Me Your Love' is just plain irritating.

        funkface agree- not much to say about this.
        Alltime Disco Classic.
        To the other comments- there are tons of tracks that sampled this one. As there are remixes and edits.
        You can also find some with other or sure without vocals!!

          First time I heard this, I thought it was maddeningly repetitive, but I soon realized the 2.5 measure phrase makes this a very unique song with a unique wonder Larry banged this out at the Garage.

          Don't love the vocals, but the groove makes up for it. Hope to see a new dub mix at some point....

            When you are hearing this nice, and sensual disco boogie music, it will bring your passionate side out. This may make you find yourself yearning to kiss and cuddle with your lovely girlfriend, and perhaps even start engaging in sweet sexual congress!!

              "Give Me Your Love" was sampled in Armin Van Heldens excellent good-vibes banger "Full Moon".

                Good lord! Give Me Your Love defines the term groove. Just insane that I haven't heard of this earlier! Essential!
