    Some serious sensuality here Paul!!! Sade, is one of my favorite jazz artists and your postings of her 12-inches has been a joy. Thank you so very much for adding this single to your phenomenal site. I needed some cheering up today and this record has certainly made me feel a lot better. You’re the best Paul!!

    Grateful!

    I’ve always really enjoyed this song, The perfect soundtrack to a summer afternoon, even on a cold and rainy day. It really is hard to go wrong with Sade.

    One of my favorite 12″s & for good reason. It’s awesome for ‘testing’ your old school large cabinet speakers for proper woofer excursion. lol
    Thanks for the post!

    One that’s missing here & from my collection as well is the stock copy of Smooth Operator. It’s ‘b’ side, Spirit is worth having & really did belong on the album.
