The Love Of My Own (instrumental) - (4:55) 117 BPM
Dub Of My Own (remix) - (6:06) 120 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Life Immoreal - (6:40) 125 BPM
Review: Holland's Clone Records crew has struck up quite a partnership with veteran Chicagoan Joe Lewis, a producer who delivered some of the most distinctive early house records back in the mid 1980s. They've already re-released tons of Lewis's sought-after cult classics and here deliver a much needed reissue of his 1986 debut "Love of My Own". As with the original 12", there are two versions of the title track available: the melodious, glassy-eyed and loved-up "Instrumental", which is a bit like a Larry Heard cut after a day in the sun, and the percussive, punchy and floor-friendly "Dub On My Own (Remix)". There's also a tasty bonus in the shape of "Life Immoreal", a spacey but driving deep house cut that was first featured on Lewis's 1994 EP "Separate Ways".

Review: Clone's Classic Cuts sub-label continues to mine the impressive back catalogue of veteran Chicago producer Joe Lewis. The majority of cuts here first appeared on now hard-to-find 12" singles first released on Target Recordings in 1990 and '91. "Midnight Dancin' (Club Mix)", featuring the slick, soulful vocals of sadly departed singer Darryl Goodlett, is a sparkling fusion of Chicago house bottom end and the colourful musicality of New Jersey garage. Arguably even better is the little more stripped-back "Dancin' Mix" (originally released in 2005), which layers the more freestyle sections of Goodlett's vocal over a killer groove. Arguably best of all, though, is closer "Simply Yours", a premium chunk of wiggly acid mania, underpinned by a thickset synth bassline and typically raw drum machine beats.

Review: Back in 1988, Chicagoan DJ Joe Lewis delivered Lost In Tracks, an early acid onslaught that has since become a must-have for serious house collectors. Some 28 years on, it finally gets a reissue on Clone's Classic Cuts series. All six of Lewis's tracks from the original release are present (David Whiting's short percussion track, tagged on to the '88 12" as a bonus, has been omitted), and are here presented in newly re-mastered form. As you might expect, the material sits somewhere between sweaty jack-tracks and handclap-heavy box-jams, with "Just Hold Back The Feelin" - with its' sampled diva vocal lines and classic Chi-town bassline - and wild, ragging "One On One" amongst the many highlights. Given that original copies are "almost unobtainable", this should be on your shopping list.
