This was the first Leftfield release on Neil and Paul’s own Hard Hands label.
The lyrics are a direct lift from the song Trials And Crosses, a 12″ single that Earl Sixteen released back in 1981 on the Greensleeves label (with a song by Barry Brown on the flip side). You can hear it on the Youtube link below.
There’s a rare, shorter edit of The Vocal Mix that clocks in at just under 5 minutes but has a unique break in it. It’s only ever been released on the Trance Dance compilation and a CD that was given away by Mixmag magazine in 2001.
