    For me, this 12 is all about the production. Even in today's digital age you will be extremely hard pushed to find a release that comes anywhere close to the depth of this 83 electro classic. Even today, this is the tune that I use to set up the sub in my car. This or The Angels Fell by Dillinja. A masterpiece. That's it.

      My version have something like Herbie Hancock signature on the front side of cover. Under "K" letter in "rock". Is It something usual, or my version is the special one?
      Sorry for my English...
