Mr. K’s records on Most Excellent Unlimited represent the greatest edit series going and it’s not even close. This 7″ was released in late September and it’s a small miracle there are still any in stock. Some DJs sleep and some DJs will weep when they find a five and a half minute cut of Danny Krivit‘s legendary edit of MFSB’s “Love Is The Message.” Few edits can really be called that — legendary — but the TD Records edit certainly is. This trimmed down version keeps the focus on Leon Huff’s electrifying solo on the keys.
On the flip is a 7″ edit of the Isaac Hayes classic “I Can’t Turn Around” that a decade later would become “Love Can’t Turn Around.”
