    UK license of this Torsten Fenslau production, originally issued the year before on his own Abfahrt label. The Guerilla version benefits from a better cut than the original release (the kick drum on this record is probably the most pounding I've ever heard), but it frustratingly omits the instrumental "Breathless" mix, and instead adds a pretty sub-par Orbital mix and a short radio edit.

    Fenslau's collaboration with Jürgen "Nosie" Katzmann yielded excellent results on the first Abfahrt release, "Alone (It's Me)", which appeared as early as 1989. Arguably one of the first ever trance records, "Alone" illustrates the oft-forgotten fact that new beat and trance were indeed close cousins, and importantly; Katzmann's vocals worked very well on that track, so much so that I prefer the vocal mix to the instrumental.

    "Come Into My Life" is another story, though. Katzmann's wet, pretentious singer/songwriter sensibilities feel intrusive and embarassing here, and ruin the otherwise truly epic track so much that I can't stand listening to the vocal mix. Imagine my delight when I realized, after 11 years of hating this version, that an instrumental mix indeed existed (I first heard it in a set by fellow ogger mayday); but only on the (rare) German original. So, in short, the Breathless mix is the one you need - and it's a testament to Guerilla's notoriously poor quality control that they failed to include that version here.

    Interestingly, Guerilla's label manager Dick O'Dell apparently had big plans for Abfahrt (you can read more in the book that accompanied the first Trance Europe Express CD compilation). However, those plans came to a sudden end with Fenslau's untimely death some months later.
