“Take Me Higher” was the first of four singles issued from Diana Ross’ 1995 album of the same name. A multitude of mixes was produced for each side of the Atlantic; Brits got the better of the lot, receiving epic revisions from T-Empo, Brian Transeau, and Felix Da Housecat. This rare CD-R is the only digital source for the full-length UK remixes (heavily edited versions of some tracks appear on the commercial CD of follow-up single, “I’m Gone”).

The following year, “Take Me Higher” resurfaced as a promo release with new reworks by Nush and Reverend Jefferson, along with unreleased dubs by Blaze and Joe Claussell.

HELP > Anyone have Diana Ross’ “In The Ones You Love” UK CD 1?

Tom Jones – If I Only Knew

While I’m away for the weekend, here’s something from an artist who’s no stranger to Sin City…

Tom Jones
“If I Only Knew”
1994 ZTT Records (UK)

01. If I Only Knew
02. If I Only Knew (Inner City Radio Mix)
03. If I Only Knew (T-Empo’s ‘Live From Las Vegas’ Club Mix)
04. If I Only Knew (Inner City Club Mix)
05. If I Only Knew (Inner City Underground Mix)
06. If I Only Knew (T-Empo’s ‘Get Those Knickers Off!’ Dub)

INFO > Don’t call it a comeback, but “The Lead And How To Swing It” reinvigorated Tom Jones’ career in the mid-1990s. That album’s interesting stew of styles includes this Trevor Horn produced single, “If I Only Knew.” Remixes by Bobby D’Ambrosio and T-Empo took Tom onto the dancefloor like never before.
