This version here is the one to get, it is the pressing that has the longer 6:21 dub that includes the vocals at the end. If this is what you're after, do not buy copies of this promo pressing that have two mixes on the B-side. Make sure there is only one cut on each side.

Clarifying matters, the catalog number may be the same on this issue, but the instrumental version on the B-side is shorter here and therefore less desirable than Lace - Can't Play Around (promo). The way to tell is that this pressing contains two versions on the B-side, the edition with the longer dub has that one version that spreads over the whole side instead.

Sound quality is okay but questionable on this one, at least with my pressing. Anybody can confirm?

There seems to be a great deal of confusion regarding the different mixes and releases. Several of these releases are pictured with the label photo that includes Larry Levan's instrumental mix which clocks in at 6:21. Unfortunately most only have the 4:56 instrumental mix which is pretty objectively a lesser track, hence some of the frustration in these comments.

hi i am gravely dissapointed as this NOT the Larry Levan DUb version of the track as you have advertised which goes for 6.21 sec .... but the inferior 4.56 version .... You have made a BIG mistake in advertising this and i have spent over $35 Australian onsomething which is not what i believd i was buying .... we need to coorect this matter .. i am very upset about this as i needed this record for deejaying and can not use this version ., luc

This wax is like a stimulant medication or a vitamin supplement prescribed by female vocals who have the medicine dose to inject by subwoofers treatment and gives you the power to challenge yourself. Tested and approved by professor Larry Levan. It brings positive strength to cure any kind of depression and outmatch yourself in any kind of situation. Discovered in 1982, the formula has been remixed by many other scientists but stay original for a warm sound. Generic drugs are synthesized.

One of Larry Levan's favourite track and a Paradise Garage classic, also included in the Album collection "Journey into Paradise: The Larry Levan Story". I have to notice that this special Promo issue of this classic contains the Dub version called Instrumental in B side (6:21) that start as an instrumental version but ends with vocals in a very Garage Dub Style, in according to some rumours instrumental side was Larry Levan's favourite version that he used to play in the club.
