I never realized that Mr. Lee and Tell Mama were NOT on the original US LP or CD - only the UK/European issue - and then included on the more recent FTG deluxe expanded reissue.

Great deluxe edition, BUT a missed opportunity to include some U.S. 12" remixes, such as the David Morales-Frank Knuckles (RIP) remix of "Breathe Life into Me" and the Bruce Forest club mix of "My One Temptation," my fave mix of the song - too bad,... See full review

A great Japan-only remixes collection - RARE and one of the only places you're going to find the extended 12" mixes of Chaka's brilliant singles Love of a Lifetime (Scritti Politti!) and Tight Fit on CD, plus hits from her previous album at that time,... See full review

Will there be a physical CD edition? Should be a 2-CD deluxe edition featuring 12" mixes of the singles - c'mon, Glitterbox - do it for the fans/collectors - long live physical media! :)

Wow - this is a GREAT collection of house and mid-tempo soul steppers featuring several house singers i love like D'Bora, Meechie, etc. - had this album been released via MCA in the #90s, it would have been a hit - but now the decades wait is over and... See full review

The description should mention that the music of this track is lifted from Malcolm X "No Sell Out" 1983 Tommy Boy 12" (produced by Keith LeBlanc) - a stone-cold hip-hop/electro classic.

I don't understand all the "EDM" comments here - this is NOT EDM - this is Kevin Saunderson's 2020 update of his classic Inner City tech-house sound - the DNA and blue print of Inner City are found in these tracks. A solid comeback, considering that... See full review

100% agreed - I've loved this album since I picked up a promo LP copy back in 1983 - amazed this has never been officially released on CD, not to mention a deluxe expanded CD edition with 12" mixes - I burned my own CD years ago and have this CD boot... See full review

Wow, this is such a solid rock album - great sound, riffs, hooks, and style - not a bad track in the bunch - The Moons are very underrated and should be bigger. Now I need to hear their other longplayers.

Disappointed this new album doesn't include her single "Overtime" - maybe it will added as a bonus track on the inevitable deluxe version?
posted a comment on Dave Wakeling - No Warning. 4 months ago
This is a "lost" early 90s solo album by Dave Wakeling - while it barely got any promotion/marketing, No Warning is a very solid solo effort by The English Beat / General Public lead singer - in fact, if you love either of those bands, you should pick... See full review

One of Ce Ce Rogers' finest vocal moments and one of Kerri Chandler's most amazing remixes - pity it's sooooo RARE and hard-to-find on promo CD. I've been looking for it for literally DECADES - I have the 12".

This "greatest hits" comp is really just a repackaging of S&T's sophomore album, Harlem Nights, with the big hit from their s/t debut album, Thinking About Your Love, added with a few remixes. Truth is, the vast majority of their first - and superior... See full review

This 2019 CD is a missed opportunity: If you're going to reissue this album (which has already on relased on CD prior), you should reissue a DELUXE 2-CD edition with many of the various 12" mixes issued of the singles, such as the epic Frankie... 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

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.

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.
