Dropping 'Tears' in the mix just makes the spirit soar.... genius! The finest house tune of all time? Gets my vote!


A true legend. I recorded this on C-90 cassette back in 1999 - great to hear the first half hour for the first time! The wonders of technology have flown since then! One of my favourite essential mixes1 It's a soul thing, a body thing........ in sweet memory.


Thanks for posting this! Truly magnificent house music from the master! In memorium.
