CD Reviews

No new material here or even a complete reissue of "Ecstacy"
enlewellyn | Mt Vernon, MO USA | 03/05/2000
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I was thrilled when I purchased this release, but not so thrilled when I listened to it. Ultimately it comes down to what is the semblence of greed after the death of a great singer. This is a poor domestic reissue of the outstanding Belgium import "Ecstacy" released by Kahn and Sagoo. "Ecstacy" contains 8 tracks while "Magic Touch" contain 6 of these tracks. Normally I wouldn't complain about this but I felt extremly cheated. Why? Because the song title have been changed and rearranged. A ploy for sales? The Belgium release has english titles while "Magic Touch" has them in Pakistani, intentionally confusing, perhaps. I doubt that Nusratt would have allowed it. So a warning to those looking for new material, you won't find it here. On another note, if you don't have "Ecstacy" and can't get it, then by all means grap this hint of the treasure that "Ecstacy" is, because (I suppose) it's better than not hearing it at all. An excellent mixture of dub, funk, hip hop and Nusratt! This is by the way a precursor to Khan's involvement with the Real World lable and is most likely what perked up Micheal Brook and Peter Gabriel's ears upon hearing it. Not to be missed if you can't get the original, even though it is a bit misleading."
