JT and the Big Family - Moments In Soul (1990)

Champion Records CHAMP12 237

As I recall, they were an Italian studio production team, Christian Hornbostel & Paul Bisiach, who put together this smooth little number. They were better known as Don Pablos Animals but not to me. That stuff was cheesey Pop house in 88-89, I think?

The beats are from Back To Life by Soul II Soul with the break from Funky President by James Brown. The refrain samples Moments In Love (hence, the title) by Art of Noise and For The Love Of Money by The O'Jays supplying that big bass line leader. Also in there you have the obligatory 1990 "Ah Yeah!" and a bit of dialogue which, it has been claimed, comes from a Milli Vanilli song but hey, they didn't perform anything themselves so its probably from somewhere else anyway?

Kym says: Great track! Brings back a lot of memories for me, this one. You're spot on with the Milli Vanilli sample, Mick - It was from the intro of the 12" version of Girl You Know It's True. Anyway, I've replaced the dead link with a freshly re-ripped CD version for your listening pleasure, folks. I have some remixes of this, too, if anybody is interested?
