“Don’t need no money/Just call my name/And I’ll be there honey/And I’ll ease the pain …” Frankie Knuckles and David Morales take ’em to church on this repress from the archives and apparently available on vinyl in their full length for the very first time (edit: and now digital too.)
Originally mixed by Tom Moulton and then by John Morales for an M+M Mix, Double Exposure’s soul-with-strings classic is featured here with A side remixes from Frankie Knuckles and B side remixes from Def Mix partner David Morales. There’s a soft percussive underbelly to Frankie’s “Classic Knuckledusted” mixes that lets the vocal breathe in all of its glory. It’s heavy on the FX which definitely date it to the early 1990s; David’s mixes on the other hand have a kind of rawness and minimalism and hearken back to Tom and John’s mixes.
