    Paul, it’s not even Christmas and the presents from you just keep coming. I want to call you Saint Rip, the Saint Nicholas of vinyl gifting. You are an exquisite fellow my friend with your beautiful heart and giving soul. I do know Re-Flex courtesy of their “The Politics of Dancing,” however, I sadly missed out on their full twelve inch discography. Thank you TONS for filling in the gaps of so many artists I adore. Burning The Ground is a diamond mine of fabulous sparking sonic gems. You do yourself and us so proud.

    Hail to St. Rip!!

    Oh baby, this is one of my faves! I bought the exhaustive Re=Fuse box set but it oddly only contains the UK mix. Many thanks!

    Wow. I’ve been looking for this one, Paul! I have the “U.K. Emotional Mix” (with a reprise of an instrumental outro tagged on the end) on The Re-Flex box set from 2010 (released via their official site). That box contained a handful of newly remixed 12″ versions based on the original 12″ versions. However, many fans wanted to have the original 12″ versions, too, including the “U.S. Emotional Mix”, which is the version that I was looking for (even though I like the “U.K Emotional Mix” more). Thank you, Paul, for another rare, brilliant transfer/remaster!

    I would love to hear more Re-Flex 12″ transfers/remasters!

    Holy cow! This has always been one of my “grail” 12″ singles. To get a super-clean DJ PaulT rip of it is an early holiday gift, indeed. Thanks much!
