chrisnova777 good find... should also mention that killer guitar sample is from Living Together by the Jackson 5, Philly International Recs 1976, produced by Dexter Wansel

I'd agree with restless here (not for the first time) about 121346, I've been waiting a couple of decades now for it to age or degrade but I think it's safely in the timeless classic category.

Among FBA's best. Stunning, underrated release, very Steve Pickton/Nuron/Likemind, but with Puffett's signature sound (save for A1 which is the weakest of the lot, but still good).

Keynotes is, quite simply, one of the most beautiful techno tracks ever made. By the unsung genius who is Stephen Brown. A gem of mine that needs to be better known to the world. The label art isn't bad either :p

Just thought of this record today while I cobble together another mix. Thought to add to the list of accolades.

This is their best record, not even close. Incunabula is high art on its own, but this one is in the stratosphere.

To my mind and heart, one of the best albums ever made. You can listen to thousands of complete albums that will never reach this level emotional power and depth. Thank you Slowdive, and whatever muses possessed you when you made this. Moussaka Chaos is ... See full review

This was not repressed, for the record (ha). The version Derrick put out on his label Blue Cucaracha, and which was recently repressed, is a remix of the original here on this release. The flip side is also a great track. Essential midwestern quality ... See full review

This is exactly the same release as https://www.discogs.com/Funky-Horns-David-Alvarado-Blow-Aurora/release/6922042, should be corrected.

Definitely a creative use of the classic T-Connection "After Midnight" drum loop, and probably does a nice job in the club, but pretty dated.

Brilliant instrumental by BHY, the rhythmic backbone of Philly soul, written originally by Gamble & Ross hit for Dee Dee Warwick (sister of Dionne). And arranged by Thom Bell. It all adds up to 2.5 minutes of perfection.

Flip is a nice and funky jam.

I'll agree with cthulhu303 that basically every remix of this track sucks. HOWEVER, the writer's own Secret Cinema remix is hands-in-the-air superb. The original is also a big classic, untouchable, I don't care how much it sounds like Basic Channel.
