A Guy Called Gerald

Last week’s news about Frankie Knuckles had me revisiting his back catalogue. I was reminded that he had remixed A Guy Called Gerald’s game-changing ‘Voodoo Ray’ for its US release. Rham! Records had pressed the original single in the UK and the 500 copies sold out in a day. Gerald Simpson was already known as part of the 808 State crew that had released the seminal Newbuild earlier in 1988, but after some wrangling over money, he struck out on his own as AGCG.
