    Have to disagree with most of the reviews below me here. I totally get where they are coming from. With the tension building up rather long and the final climax being short. But this is only when listening to the edits in full at home.

    Though; when applied in the mix, as I heard Hardy work them in some of his recorded sets, they absolutely work in a satisfying manner and really add up to the originals in a way they should add up for a dance environment.

    it might be a bit of a cliche nowadays... Club edits straight for the clubs. As good as they come.

      Gotta agree with arch here, mostly...I think the Peaches & Prunes edit is amazing but I think it would actually be ideal to play with the original, bc I love a lot of the original that Ron's edit doesn't contain. The Blue Magic edit is almost good enough to replace using the original (which I have)...keeps a lot of the most important parts (like the beautiful keys break) but doesn't overdo it.

        Deadman..... seems to be missing the point in his summary of this as a poorly edited dj tool. Regarding "Peaches and Prunes" the structural observations are correct, but this takes nothing away from the sheer magnitude of the track. Hardy has isolate the groove and stretched it in a very basic way that loses no dancefloor credability, and lets face it, Hardy was all about the dancefloor. This track is a belter, of stripped down groove with a bit of a pause, in the form of the chorus tease that just makes you appreciate the pure strength of the groove. On the dancefloor, at that time of the night when we all know how good it feels, structure is out of the window except for that short loop that keeps you moving. This record is made for being in a moment - not for taking you on a journey, the only criticism I have is that after only 6 and a half minutes I have to put the needle back to the start again.
