    The instrumental version blends well with the DUB version of Summertime Summertime by Nocera

      One of the greatest low-tech, low-budget electro soul records from the Paradise Garage era. I first heard this when I was "picking up" my records one friday, that is making the rounds of all the record labels in NYC that allowed DJs to come to their offices to stock up on the upcoming weekend's hot releases. Jump Street was on a roll, and the living legend himself Tee Scott was there to promote this track he co-produced. That same friday I was at the Garage after my regular gig at Save The Robots had was a slow night and the floor was almost empty. Larry proceeded to work this record for the next half hour while I nursed a bowl of strong `herb and grooved in the middle of the massive dancefloor. It was one of these personal, "Garage Moments." The song is really simple, with a great melody, a primitive drum-machine sound, primitive keyboards, throbbing, crude bass-line, and Russ Brown gives a perfect, Gospel-inflected delivery of positive lyricism. The song was so in-demand relative to the small number pressed, that Jump Street re-issued it later in the form of a re-edit on the subsequent release, "Take My Love."
