INFO > A couple of days ago, I posted Fire Island’s cover of “There But For The Grace Of God”; while it’s a great revision of the Machine classic, Farley and Heller opted not to feature the original tune’s catchy keyboard section. Roger Sanchez recycled that riff to great effect on his Narcotic mixes of this one-off single by Love Tribe. Additional remixes by Alcatraz and Sharp join Dewey Bullock’s original versions on the two CD singles issued by AM:PM (unique tracks from both discs are consolidated here).
