Restored by Robin Allison, Music Preservation Society For Clubhouse Productions 2017

Plated at MPO (mothers) and NiPro Records (stampers).

The original 1992 test pressing was mastered by Europadisk Ltd. using Direct Metal Mastering and contained several pressing faults (a small drop out and a sticking groove). As such track A2 from the original issue was removed from this reissue. As original master tapes were lost, this reissue was recorded from an original near mint vinyl using Prism Sound Orpheus, restored by Robin Allinson at Music Preservation Society using Izotope RX, remastered by Bob Macc at Subvert Central Mastering, and cut to lacquer by Keith Tenniswood at Curve Pusher.

Originally scheduled to be pressed by MPO (who pressed ten test pressings), pressing was subsequently pulled and master metalwork moved to Vinyl Presents for the full release owing to substantial pressing delays at MPO.

Approximately 6 months after I pre ordered this record, I finally received it. It was worth the wait !! Perfectly remastered, sounding really good ! Thanks MPS for this repress, you've done an awesome job <3

Super deep house of the highest order.
Very happy to finally have a copy of this one! No way of telling how the original pressing actually sounded, seeing as I don't own a copy but either way it sounds dynamic and vibrant and will definitely bump in the dance. There's a lot of labels doing half arsed reissues from vinyl out there but MPS have done a fantastic job with this one - I genuinely wouldn't be able to tell with this one whether it's from DAT, cassette
or vinyl. Special mention to Vinyl Presents coming through in the wake of MPO dropping the ball - lovely clean sounding vinyl.

Edit: so it sounds like it's not getting a repress now? I do see however 'Ron's Vocal Beat Down Mix' will be included on Hunee's forthcoming compilation 'Hunchin' All Night' cat no. RHMC 001

Sounds great.
Top job
Thanks guys.
Well worth the wait. ❤️

Great to finally grab this. Was on my wantlist for years, and never thought it would be reissued, top Ron Trent production!

A wonderful surprise waiting for me when I got home today. Sounding great! Theyre only kids!
