Said the same seven years ago! (See below) - Agreed, the fact that Geffen (now owned by Uni) has NEVER released this amazing album on CD (or even digital) is a crime. I believe there's an audience who would buy it - and would be nice to include an ... See full review

My fave cut on this album is "Thick & Thin" - a stellar house track blessed with a minimal, tough production by Kerri Chandler - could have been a single - still sounds amazing today!

Darwin has a strong, rich voice and his debut is a solid contemporary gospel album with several stellar, uplifting, yet grooving tracks.

What I find annoying is: while the physical CD has 11 tracks/mixes, the digital version of the album has 15 track/mixes?! WHY wouldn't they put/it ALL the mixes on the CD? Mixes NOT on this CD include the cool "Lost Dog" remix of "Save Me Now," a ... See full review

Why didn't they include Chic's "comeback" single "I'll Be There" - which was announced back in 2015 as 'from the forthcoming album It's About Time" - THREE years later...It's About Time!

The XXX rated vocals on this mix are sampled from an underground bootleg tape by The Black Angel - I heard it in its entirety back in the late 80s - very adult, very blue, and very funny! Seek it out.

The vocal chorus hook "Looove" is sample of Jennifer Hollidays' lung-busting vocal from Dreamgirls' "And I Am Telling You i'm Not Going"

Tata's other albums have been reissued on CD, but why not this one, her BEST album? And it included several club hits, like Get It Up for Love...we need this on a deluxe edition CD pronto!

Hey, it's Gregg from the Maniax - you're right: we recorded "Off to War' on the MRNR comp in one take via a hand-held portable cassette player, one mic, and an amp - now that's what I call DIY punk! :)

The hype? Back in 1993, these were tough MK house vocal/dub mixes and the looped inflammatory, expletive-laden chant "F**kin B*tch C*nt" was notorious at the time, hence the demand on the dancelfoor. One of MK's greatest remixes ever.

This isn't a stellar album, but it has its moments, mostly provided by electro-fun pioneer producer John Robie's production, which recalls that complex, clean Scritti Politti 80s polish. Standouts are the title track, The Spirit of Love (with background ... See full review

It's actually a remake of George Clinton's "Bullet-Proof" tracks from the #80s - and Kier was using it as an anti-war protest song - I think it's a nice update and of course Miss Kier's vocals are always on point - I was hoping this single would ... See full review

What is odd about this CD reissue - which combines tracks from the Polecat' debut UK album "Polecats are Go!" and the later U.S. mini-LP/EP "Make a Circuit with Me," is this CD doesn't contain "Rockabilly Guy," which was included on the LP version of ... See full review

CD:UK is a club psuedonym for a hot club remix of Culture Club's "See Thru" track from "Don't Mind If I Do" - especially loved the MPC's dub in that late 90s UK/speed garage style - should have been a bigger hit than it was - still sounds fresh today.
