    Another irresistible single from Alisha, Paul!! Gosh, talk about being “too turned on!!” This song really is a club banger. What I love about these early singles is that the production was top notch. Latin Hip Hop or Freestyle or whatever you want to call this genre, I myself prefer electro-pop; it really was innovative in its early stages. Productions by Mark Berry, John Robie and Ligget and Barbosa were high-end quality productions. After awhile, lack of creativity really hurt this genre. Wow Paul, I am so intensely grateful for you bringing Alisha back to our ears in such a high-end, EXTREME QUALITY way!! I mean, this girl has a great voice and – AGAIN – with Mark Berry providing the production and Shep involved in the mixing, really make these songs sparkle like diamonds. And I love that you include the sought-after dub mixes. I am dumbfounded that the industry doesn’t acknowledge your Super-Powers!! I would (almost, that is almost) give up a testicle (ewwww) just to make sure that you would find tributes from industry types for your archival prowess. What we have on your Burning The Ground site is the perfect Cyber Record Store!! Your tastes are exquisite and I am so touched by you in that you’re certainly a kindred spirit. I so wish I could do so much more for you and this pursuit of high-end vinyl rips than I do already. That’s why I rave to you and donate when I can. I just wish I could really convey my appreciation and admiration for all you do. Thank You AGAIN!!

    Humbly Grateful,


    P.S. I apologize if some of my ravings are a bit intense. I never want to offend you and your readers. It’s just, I have so much passion, it’s an addiction!!
