Playing tracks by

Here's the B-side. This was the 3rd attempt to incorporate house music in my mixtapes as the sound steamrollered the soul scene. If you notice, the Marshall Jefferson track is the instrumental version. Remember, before the 'Summer of Love '88, many of the big house tracks were essentially funky-ass instrumentals & the House Music Anthem was no different. It was only once the genre gathered momentum, more Djs were picking up the tunes that the vocal versions got played more.
Mr Fingers' seminal 'Can You Feel It' was re-released with a a new vocal track, but the original will always sound better to me. Well, it was the first house track I actually ran out to buy after I'd heard it & I'd heard a LOT of it before then...........
