    THIS IS JUST A REWORK OF THE ORIGINAL "THE ROTARY CONNECTION - I AM THE BLACK GOLD OF THE SUN" RELEASED IN 1971.

      Languorous and beautiful, <I>I Am the Black Gold of the Sun</I> is marred (on the MAW remix) by some ill-placed rhymes by Q-Tip. Jocelyn Brown again does wonders with the vocals and her accompaniment is both heavy (the beats) and dreamy (the synths). But the 4 Hero remix is the one that takes the cake. It’s future jazz at its most profound and sublime, with sweeping strings and Jocelyn’s vocals soaring above them and the broken beat rhythms. The re-edit of “Runaway” cuts up the India’s vocals a bit more, but it doesn’t necessarily add anything of note.
