Version Excursion

Welcome to the weekend…!

The original by Chain Reaction is great, but I prefer this version - the build up is better and it has a bit more raw energy:

This is a remixed version of a track that appeared on Carl Craig’s Detroit Experiment album. Vocal by Amp Fiddler, original by Stevie Wonder:

Another Yam Who? cover version, this time of the Brit-boogie-disco classic You Don’t Care About Our Love by China Burton:

Paul Hardcastle solo side-project from the mid-80s.

I’d forgotten all about it until I was sifting through some records this evening and came across a 00s promo (it’s the ‘electrofunk mix’, natch).

[Edit: despite the label, it isn’t a remix, it’s a completely re-recorded cover version]

Nice flamenco version of Cheb Khaled. The 12" has a ‘xenon dub’ on it which is intriguing… might have to cop the international postage and give it a listen…
