Where are the synths on Clr Sky sampled from? It's doing my head in.

Uses a very similar bassline to the remix of Shannon's "Let the Music Play".

I think the 8.22 mix is from the TMT label. Maybe you can double check.

I remember hearing the tracks off the Caliber EP were originally going to be released as a 2x12" with the tracks from Maybe that's why the sounds from the 2 records are so similar.

I know at a minimum many copies were pressed at BrooklynPhono. Maybe some were made at MPO, but I'm not sure.

This is a cover of "Set it Off" by Strafe.

The bassline from the B-Boy mix is sampled from "First Impressions" by Shamek Farrah.

I think it also takes the beats from Electra "Feels Good (Carrots & Beets)".

I'm pretty sure it's taken from Loleatta Holloway "Seconds". :)

It was pressed in a different plant than all the other CCCP releases. Probably for the reason you outlined.

I believe the Master Reese mix that clocks in around 4 minutes is the same as the 7" mix and can be found on versions of the 12" single.

Assuming this is the same release as on Spotify, the version of It's A Better Than Good Time appears to be the Walter Gibbons remix with 1 or 2 jarring edits and a fadeout. That might explain why it's a few seconds shorter than the other Walter Gibbons ... See full review

Apparently the synthesizer work (including the Electra inspired parts) was added by Mark "Hot Rod" Trollan for the Persona release, and DJ International and Trax stole the track afterwards. This would seem to align with the fact all the "unreleased ... See full review

The film was released in 1991 and the original Altered States is from 1990.

The longer 909 intro might mean it's the same version as on

Yep. It's in the a capella off that Peech Boys record.

The melody on this track is reminiscent of that from The Beginning of the End's "When She Made Me Promise".

The promo only version of "Say Yes To Satan" is different from the commercial release. The commercial release uses the amen break sample and lacks the long intro the promo release has.

The promo version was made famous by Top Buzz at Fantazia like ... See full review

A total classic house jam. The percussion is perfect jackin' material. The lo-fi production is magnified by the fact that there seems to be obvious tape noise in the background!

Derrick May hated this remake. He cleared the release only because it would have been released against his wishes anyway.

The beginning sounds very much like a certain section in "Billy Who?", but many other songs have had a similar section: "Lady Bug" by Bumblebee Unlimited and "Club Attack" by Konk for starters.

Actually, I believe Steve Reich was quoted saying he quite liked the sample. But please respond if that's not the case.

This is seriously some ace synthpop-wave music. "Just My Love" is a killer track complete with a huge throbbing bassline and heavy as hell kick drum. There's even some nice synth action going on. Totally gives me flashbacks of Berlin and I imagine Ron ... See full review

The vocal and instrumental both truly capture the essence of groovy, hypnotic disco music. Every time I hear this record, I lose control of myself in the stuttering guitar chord and piano line repeating over, over, and over again. Yes the track is very ... See full review

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 ... See full review
