    I had this record because of the Hurley mixes in my wantlist for ages and about 4 years ago I found it in a small closing down recordstore leftovers box. Grabbed it immediately and it’ll stay my favourite forever. I also tend to like more Arthur Baker’s mixes than Steve Hurley’s. Like someone said here before - Baker’s mixes are still playable in clubs but Hurley’s haven’t aged that well.

      Possibly one the greatest 12” remixes ever produced. Hurley is a genius, and even though the Baker mix is ok, it isn’t a patch on Hurley’s interpretation. Fantastic quiet pressing as well - analogue heaven for those who love US 12” pressings from the mid-late 80s.

        Sheer brilliance..A quiet storm record. Re designed and vibed with a hyped beat..The vocals are not boring. It's Roberta Flack in all her style and glory!

          Arthur Baker's 1988 mix & dub have not only stood the test of time, but will stay in the league of dance classics.

          Y'know, however amazing Steve Silk Hurley's Chicago techno based mixes were in the clubs and fields at the time, they haven't lasted to me.

          I always felt they never agreed at all with the character of Roberta's gorgeous original R&B version, which for me was never a good thing for house music. House can be as mellow as you like or as hard as you demand (or both at the same time) but house is a feeling, is spirit and soul, and always needs to respect the idea of music and feeling it is around.

          Having said that, there were indescribably brilliant times with Silk's mix in great sets back in the proper house music era. Those mixes to me just don't hold up well today. I know I'm not in a club hearing them, and haven't been for many years. (I don't think the speaker systems exist anymore that can give close to the effect of the late 80s & early 90s). So who knows what I'd think if I were in a the proper old environment hearing a master play Silk's Uh Uh perfectly placed?

            Hard to believe it's an 1988 production - still raise hairs on the back of my neck - Of course it's all a matter of personal taste but for me it's the Hurley remix for straight up vocal Diva House that I've found blows people away when played through a loud system and mixed in with other House classics

            Arthur Baker's mix is much more commercial and leans towards straight up Disco (dylaf rightly calls it a Boogie vibe) - would work nicely at a wedding ;)

              Arthur's Dub mix has a great NY Boogie vibe & easily up-stages Hurley's mix. Nice sharp edits & a sound that would fit nicely with Francois K/Paul Simpson/John Morales et all.

                I bought this record thinking Hurley's remix would make this a 1988 house classic. Contrary to popular opinion, I didn't find myself enjoying Hurley's remix much; the vocals weren't great and poorly meshed with the track and I found myself thinking it was a pretty boring track.

                I listened to the flip side and found Arthur Baker's dub remix to be a better substitute for the deep garage house I was expecting from Steve Hurley with sparse vocals backed behind a combination of Chicago house rhythms and deep garage effects. By no means does it make the record a classic, but it saved the vinyl in my opinion.

                  Brilliant mix by Hurley here, sampled by Lee Marrow on 'Movin'. Cut up vocals, padded out with some metal sounding fx, over a nicely programmed beat, expertly arranged too by the master. Add to that Roberta Flack's sweet sweet voice and dreamy lyrics, all time favourite for me. Oh yeah, did I mention Quincy Jones?!
