    super overlooked track, i wouldn't sell my copy for less than 20 bucks - if i were looking to sell. the roy ayers track is one of the best uses of a sample in sample history. the bonus beats themselves are worth top dollar. this was the very first piece of vinyl i ever bought - i guess i was 15. a bunch of kids piled ontop of one another in a house in Austin TX in the 90s, i had just learned to beat match on my roommates' records and it was time to build a crate.

      Allright, the primary sample of the keys/guitar/bass is from Roy Ayers' Running Away (not sure where the saxophone sample comes from). Hey Baby is based around the best parts of Tata Vega - Give It Up For Love. I bought this when it first came out, and then sold that copy.. and after missing it for several years, I bought another copy on sight. As this was from the earlier 90s, I've wondered if this was a culmination of what Armand dishing out to the Boston house freaks at that point.

        Work Me! (Gadamit) is using samples from the Tom Moulton remix of "love is the message" by MFSB (1977) https://www.discogs.com/Various-Philadelphia-Classics/master/163128

          oops..."Allright" and "Pal Joey - Runaway" uses samples of Roy Ayers - Running Away (Long Version) 1977 )))) Great tune. Love it!

            "Allright" uses samples of "Pal Joey - Runaway" (1990).

              A great Armand Van Helden house record from his glory period...this jazzy house record did a lot to propel both Van Helden and Henry Street Records into the limelight.
