Hiya Zdenek and everyone,
I have rarely been a fan of whatever style the "Superchumbo" is, and when
that mix became available on the internet I didn't even save it.  However,
driving this morning running errands I let it play, and found it to be
somewhat more listenable than before ... hypnotic but oh *so* monotonous.
Still, it's the track that will probably get the most play at the US
gay/dance bars ... which is why I don't go out dancing in this town anymore!
