Following on from the Ability II ‘Pressure’ re-release, Major Problems and Compassion Cuts present another in-house favourite from their vaults: the sublime garage/r’n’b earworm ‘Don’t Tell Me (How Love Should Feel)’ by 2-BMW. A Tony Humphries/Zanzibar favourite, the sole release on Life Of Luxury in 1990 was New Jersey producer Larry P Rauson’s first cut, and never saw a full release. It’s presented with three remarkable dubs from the mysterious Man In Bed, two of which in turn are flipped by Compassion Crew and, completing the circle, by Larry himself.
Full colour cover with matt finish. Restored and mastered by Thomas P Heckmann at Trope. Cut by Andreas Kauffelt at Schnittstelle. Artwork by Mel Keane.
Larry on ‘Don’t Tell Me’: “Tony played the song at Zanzibar (on a) Saturday night. That Sunday morning my phone was blowing up... That weekend gave me the moment of my career. I was an engineer at the local cable company. Listening to Tony Humphries on the radio, not expecting it, Tony Humphries played my record on his show... I did not last much longer at that job."
