2. Hopscotch (8:13)
3. Seventh Heaven (7:22)
4. Getting Hot (4:37)

  2. Recorded at the legendary Compass Point studios in Jamaica and one of the finest records ever produced by Sly & Robbie and engineered by Steven Stanley in my opinion and THEN to get sprinkled with Levan's magical cosmic dust back in New York...Gwen was one lucky girl!

    Weirdly, not the most well-known of albums which is surprising as it has a claim to be along with Manuel Göttsching 'E2-E4' and Soft Cell's 'Non-stop Ecstatic Dancing' one of the earliest proto-house albums, coming out as it did in 1982.

    This is the remastered Japanese version by the wonderfully named Cozy Noda and the sound quality is kinda magnificent....an exquisite post for sure.
