The weekend before last I listened to my entire 'History Of House Music' box. That's 118 full length tracks on 14 albums... I do this about once a year since I bought it in ca 1991. This time my attention was caught especially by two tracks, both from 1987. Jump St. Man's B-Cause, simply because of it's sheer beauty. And then Eddie "Flashin" Fowlkes' Goodbye Kiss. Check it out. In my oppinion 808 must have been heavily influenced by this when writing Cobra Bora!
