I remember first hearing this as the sun was rising at a free party in Cornwall and the entire crowd went wild! It was so bizarre how this 'soft rock' tune translated into a blissed out balearic monster! Of course looking back its a little cheesy (maybe the drugs were just better back in the day lol) but a couple of the mixes stand the test of time...nearly twenty years ago, where does the time go!

Great post, my 12 Inch version went walk about years ago so its great to hear it in such a high quality rip.

All hail Pop Gems!
