"When this single first came out back in like 1990, it was when the whole "New Jack Swing" scene was reaching it stride. I saw an interview with Teddy Riley years ago saying he thought about quitting the music business, before he did this remix. Fortunately he didn't.

The remixes and dubs on this maxi-cd (thank god I found it), encompasses all the signature sounds and breaks that made Teddy's production such a hit in the 90's. The two tracks that stand out for me are track 2, The T.R. Dub and track 6, the T.R. Club-A-Dub, clocking in at a staggering 7:23. With the first dub, its more of the instrumental of the remix, with vocal dubs from Jane Child, and Teddy and his engineer cutting a chopping it lovely.

The T.R. Club-A-Dub is where Mr. Riley gets loose demonstrating his skills on the keys, and dramatic drum programs. And what I appreaciate most about this track (and all the beats on this single), is you get that classic breakdown in the beat, that today's 21st century R&B/Hip Hop songs just don't provide.

If you are fan of the late 80's/early 90's New Jack Swing sound, do yourself a favor and shell out a couple dollars,euros,pesos and get this cd single.

The knife feels good

One of the best singles of all time

"Actually, "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" was not the first single ever to be released by Child. Apparently, "Welcome to the Real World" was the first single which did not make that much of a dent and then came the monster "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" followed once again in the United States by the previously released "Welcome to the Real World" which would stall overall at #49 on the entire Billboard Hot 100 but reach the United States Singles Sales Billboard Top 40. "Don't Wanna Fall in Love" was was superbly arranged in its introduction. Portions of "Here Comes the Bride" are on display even amidst "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" and its opposingly earnest denial. That is one of many evident contradictions from this superb multi-instrumentalist who burst onto the scene in 1990 with this single. The image Child put forth was itself a contradiction : in the video for "Don't Wanna Fall In Love" the sound is more Amy Grant than the sound of 4 Non Blondes however the look is more 4-Non Blondes than Amy Grant. It didn't matter though - the song made Jane a smash reaching number two for three weeks in April of 1990 and number 6 on the R & B chart bolstered by these New Jack style remixes from Teddy Riley which showed Jane's ability to as Donnie Simpson of BET said about Child, "to kick a jam"."
