Jhalib / Mysteries Of The East / Emotional Rescue

jhalib art

Released in 1982, the original of this 12 has always been pretty hard to find, probably because it was an instant Baldelli-endorsed Cosmic classic. However, the reason I`ve got a copy is because it was hammered at London`s late `80s Balearic / Acid House parties (Fabi Paras` Sound Clash Republic even covered it). I suspect though that most people then, like me, weren`t playing the track from the 12, but instead it`s `88 remix (also included on this reissue) from the “seminal” (read essential for those without cash / connections) “Ethno Beats” compilation.

Emotional Rescue put this Indi-Pop gem back out there yesterday.
