Reviews about A Guy Called Gerald - The Peel Sessions (6):
Golden freddi
Love Emotions Electric, but first heard Judge Jules (boo!) drop Time Waits early in his set at Solaris in 1989 and it gave me goosebumps, so all in all a great piece of vinyl!
Frey
I was floored the first time I heard Emotions Electric. As a Mancunian I will even go to say I can hear the city and its influences woven throughout the track. All tracks on this e.p. are huge. Well programmed acid lines and haunting vocals across the tracks.
Dondallon
Hold on... Complete acid house class. Dreamy vocals over a smooth, soft 4/4 house beat enhanced by deep strings and a break similar to 'Pacific' by 808 State. The vocals... with a nod to the ahem... drugs around at the time; 'I can feel there's a force taking hold of me, it releases emotions that set me free - I try to take hold, but I lose control of my body, mind and soul'. A tune you can feel!Stone cold classic which is just the one for a laid back bar in Ibiza. Way back in 1990, I had a tape... DJ Fingers (Luton) had superbly mixed this with Sweet Exorcist 'Testone'. Not the easiest tracks to mix but they blend just great.Original early house music which hopefully will never get the awful EDM remix treatment a la Steve Aoki, Martin Garrix etc... hands off!
Zorve
Emotions Electric for me, is one of the rave era's stand out, bliss tracks. Up there with Kariya, Let me love you for Tonight (though not production wise!), & Let the Music Take Control by the Night Writers. A sublime piece of UK house music for lying on a beanbag with a massive grin & good company!

Rockin' Ricki all the way for me....classic acid as only Gerald could do it : )
Nto
"Emotions Electric" is the standout track on this EP. Very laid back house tune (about 115bpm), nice easy-going bassline, and lush female vocal over the top. The most noticable part of the vocal being: "I lose control.....of my body, mind and soullllllllllllllllllllllll." Gorgeous tune - always gets attention when people hear it.
