it does not get a whole heap better than this

Tom Browne is the Artiste but he barely features on the record!

i mean, that's him soloing right at the start... and then.... he's just part of the horn section, right? who don't exactly dominate the recording

for years and years i just assumed that Tom Browne was the bassist, as the bass was obviously the stellar instrument, the most striking and ear-entrancing and reason-to-buy hook on the record -- of course it's the mighty Marcus Miller

also thought they were funkin for Jamaica Jamaica... i'd never heard of Jamaica, Queens

this was my sixth or seventh single... bought it from Virgin Megastore on a trip up to town, along with "Down in the Tube Station At Midnight"
