Truly a masterwork of house music. It manages to be simultaneously beautiful and haunting, joyous and cynical. An absolute must listen.

No vinyl? Please someone release it. This needs to be on wax.

So unfortunate that this doesn't have a vinyl release or even a cassette.

Gotta laugh at someone wanting to hear such carefully produced music on such a crappy-sounding format as cassette.

Terre comments on why this didn't get pressed to vinyl in this FACT article about the album's reissue:“Vinyl mastering requires deep bass to essentially be in mono to prevent needles from jumping, which prohibits effects that spatialize using phasing (having elements of channels out of phase, so if combined to mono the sounds disappear as a result of the inverted – i.e. out of phase – waveforms canceling each other out).“How out-of-phase waveforms affect each other in physical space is sonically quite different than how they would cancel each other in recordings, and of course headphones eliminate any cancellation completely, so the album’s sound can change significantly depending on the listening space and context. This was all deliberate, both in relation to the theme of “house as a situation,” as well as a way of “contemporizing” the album’s sound to something that could only be possible in the digital age.“It also makes the album a bit club-unfriendly, since many club sound systems run the bass frequencies in mono as well… which is why I am sure some DJ’s have noticed the album sounds like shit in some clubs. Clubs that run their bass in mono make for crap listening environments and reap what they sow in terms of sound quality.”http://www.factmag.com/2014/04/23/dj-sprinkles-midtown-120-blues-receives-deluxe-reissue/

Re-issue CD still available $25 US - http://comatonse.com/releases... stunning NYC deep house. text from site page....The audio on the 2014 CD is identical to the 2008 first edition and subsequent represses on Mule Musiq. There are no plans for a vinyl edition because the bass "spatialization" effects that give many of these recordings their sonic character are incompatible with vinyl mastering techniques..

Pretty sure "Brenda's 20$ Dilemma" samples the first seconds of "It Hasn't Happened Yet" de William Shatner.

Incredible recording brings a very great atmosphere during the whole album. "Classic beats, subtle bass, all interspersed with chiming piano chords" - That exactly how I could, me too, talk about the music. ART.

Guys, can you give me the answer for the following one: does the 2012 reissue have track no 6 "Sisters, I don't know what this world is coming to? It seems that wherever I look for the reissue, it's not mentioned in the track list... Thanks for your help!

Subtle and moving melodies, deeper than deep basslines within thoughtful contexts - a sheer masterpiece, and a classic for the ages. Thank you, Terre.

fantastic album , a true deep house classic. to use so many well know house samples and give them a new feel , this is a must have release

I must admit to not knowing Terre's music until I discovered this on release. What can I say, this really is house of the deep. Bass lines to die for and emotive strings are abundant and of such depth, great vocal samples. This really is a sublime music to get lost in. Instant classic for sure and filed next to my Ron Trent,Larry Heard and Glenn Underground...Terre is in that league in my opinion. Music from a true individual and this shines through in every track. When house becomes art, rare my friends, rare.
