By 1988, Paul Simpson had calibre – he’d worked with Vince Montana Jr. and released some significant garage productions on the Streetwise, Easy Street and Pow Wow labels. Then, out of the blue, he made the unexpected decision to forsake the purists and try his hand at the sampletastic. ‘Musical Freedom’ was both great fun and a great success, but possibly the beginning of the end. The song features Adeva’s vocals and the stellar samples of Sinnamon’s ‘I Need You Now’ and Candi Stanton’s You’ve Got The Love. I like the original 1988 (Free At Last) version – less “Moving On Up’s” and more “Let Yourself Go’s”!
