Charly (Original Mix) the opening part had so much promise before the meowww nonsense. A nice dark affair! I particularly like the way Howlett sampled the beat from MeatBeatManifesto- Radio Babylon.
Your Love will always be a lovely hands in the air or let's hug for the memories tune.
Charly (Alley Cat Mix) Should be entitled Toytown Irritant With A Gun To My Head Mix(mag). Kill two birds with one stone I say!
But the winner for me is Pandemonium! Since I bought this in 1991 I still love it in 2018! That's all for now folks! Bye bye ;)

The big breakout single for Prodigy.The original mix of Charly gives that underground flavour,while being forgotten as the original mix at the same time.Your Love made it's way as a piano classic rave tune,while Pandemonium was pure underground class.
