Its interesting to find some differences. The Track "Sex" on this LP must be the complete track. On the Target TR-1 its shorter and faded out. Also "Rain (Pt. 1)" & "Snoopy Dancin" are slightly longer here.

It is sad when you see that a house legend like Joe Lewis can go so low and steel other people's music, and release it as his own. When you compare the production on tracks B1 and B2 with the way the rest of the tracks were produced, you can clearly see that Joe Lewis has no capacity of programming drums the way Jamie Read does. Compare this album to Read's "The End of the Beginning" and you'll see what I'm talking about. Still, this is a great album, but it is (at least the bigger portion of it) Jamie Read's album, and he should get credit for it. Shame on you Joe Lewis!

find the notes section to this release confusing - implication that this material is 'stolen'? The source of the info could do with being more evident, or some more clarification! Filled with sadness at the prospect of this album being a result of artistic theft :(

However - great album, full of stripped down simplicity - impressive drum patterns, emotion and atmosfear - 'sex' is a fantastic, deep, deep track. Well done to who ever did put this material down initially.
