49ers ‎– Touch Me (US 12″)

So before I go on my weekly trip up to see my Dad (he’s recovering in hospital from a broken hip and being quite old it’s taking time to heal) I’ll post up this early Italo house classic from Italian producer Gianfranco Bortolotti and Pieradis Rossini  , From 1989 it samples quite a bit of “Rock-A-Lott” by Aretha Franklin. It reminds me of Black Box’s “Ride On Time” which sampled Loretta Holloway’s Salsoul gem and classic “Love Sensation”, making TV performances cringe-worthy as the Diva wasn’t actually singing but impersonating. In this case front woman Alisha Warren (Younger sister of Mica Paris) kind of backed Aretha.

The “Instrumental” is in fact a Dub mix
