TRACK LISTING / Review - Trully a Record Breaker:
One World | Denver, CO USA | 06/09/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"The track listing for this cd is
1. My, My, My "Live" (Record Breaking Version) Mixed by Timothy Regisford
2. Wrap My Body Tight (12" Remake Version) by Jazzy B
3. Wrap My Body Tight (12" Remix Version) by Vaughn Halyard
The live version of My, My, My is 16+ minutes of excellence as Gill really let's loose with some high notes and wailing. Included in this version is a mini-medley in the late Marvin Gaye's classics of Let's Get It On and What's Going On toward the end. It seems that a drum track was added to give the mix a beat-heavy feel, but other than that the song is in it's original live-recording splendor. It's "Record Breaking" title is deserved.
Next up on this double-A-side cd, two remixes of Wrap My Body Tight, one from the UK and one from the U.S.. The UK version by Jazzy B. wins out here, and it was the version of choice on the radio. Both versions keep the song in the R&B/Soul genre expounding on it's original feel. Unfortunately, not included was the Soul Mix which was by the remixer of the U.S. mix. It took from the style made popular by Soul II Soul and really worked nicely and I liked better than all of the remixes of the song. There was also a House Mix on vinyl but I felt that it was just a band-wagon mix to get in on the House genre which was just beginning to enter the mainstream market at that time.
In all, "My, My My" is the center attraction here."
