Notes

Tracks A2, B1 and B2 are unique to this promo only.
Although given "global" credits, B1 is not a Masters At Work Remix.

Given the scarcity of this bootleg, B2 - Club Mix - was widely bootlegged on this vinyl.

Rumored to have only 200 copies in existence.

IMHO this must be hands down Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez and Louie Vega's very best remix work ever. Especially their "Rican Dub" is just out of this world 💫.

This super limited, U.K. promo-only is a true testament of what made Masters At Work one of the greatest remixer-teams in the 1990s. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 😊👍.

☝️ In that regard you should also check out the other, equally fantastic M.A.W. post-production tribal-House treatments of Spice Girls - Holler! (MAW Remixes), the mind-blowing "Spiritual Flute Mix" of Janet Jackson - Go Deep or e.g. the slamming, killer "Dub" of Titiyo - Back & Forth.

And let me not forget to mention the awesome "MAW Mood Dub" of The Brand New Heavies - Close To You (Masters At Work Remixes) - The energy level, the innovative, musical craftsmanship... it's all in there! Remixing does not get any better than this 😇.

BTW: And no, I do not agree with the other user's statement below re Danny Tenaglia's mixes being superior to MAW's remixes. As a matter of fact, D.T. adaptation of the song was not well received back then. It sounded just too generic and quite frankly boring. Even more so today if I may say so 😒...

Although “loosely” credited to MAW, the 12” Live Mix is obviously a live recorded version from the band and nothing to do with Masters At Work at all. Somewhat haphazardly included on this limited Promo.

The MAW Main Club Mix was rumoured to be rejected by Jay Kay (very vocally not a fan of Club Mixes of his band’s work in general), and aside from this rare 12” was more widely distributed on this bootleg vinyl.

The London Rican mix was later put on as a B Side to Half The Man, likely due to MAW’s burgeoning profile at that stage. A very romantic story is told about “The Nervous Track” and how Kenny Dope first came up with the idea after seeing people dancing to “fast jazz” at Stockport Weekender. But the story I heard is that the idea was lent to this Jamiroquai first, and due to the fact that JK didn’t allow it for a commercial release it was then re-worked into “The Nervous Track”.

Either way, a wonderful combination of artist and Remixer. Although does represent one of the few times Kenny and Louie were surpassed by another Remixer with Danny Tenaglia delivering some of his finest ever work.

Many moons ago, working for Sony Music Entertainment in Soho Square, this was one of vinyls we sent out to Sony's offices across the world for them to promote locally. Remember the tune fondly, amongst hundreds of 100s of TDK tapes we returned with rejection letters to people, who had sent them in, with the dream of being the next Michael Jackson or Jamiroquai. X-Factor in 1993.
