It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
We'll stay with the house music vibe started last week with an epic track by Clivilles & Cole, A Deeper Love.
Robert Clivilles and David Cole in the guise of C&C Music Factory had a number of dance floor favourites both here and in the states and chart success with tracks such as Gonna Make You Sweat and Things That Make You Go Hmmm. They were also prolific re mixers for the likes of Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Aretha Franklin to name but 3. They were also responsible along with David Morales and Ralphi Rosario, the first and only House supergroup, for one of my favourite early house tunes Do It Properly by 2 Puerto Ricans a Black Man and a Dominican.
Here we are concerned with A Deeper Love, first released in 1991 and became a hit on both sides of the Atlantic the following year. The vocals are courtesy of Deborah Cooper, who at that time was Clivilles & Cole's vocalist of choice. The track would later be covered by Aretha Franklin with production by the duo.
The version posted is the 12 minute plus Underground Club/ Let's Go Chanting mix but don't let that put you off as there is not a second of filler in the track.
Sadly, David Cole died of spinal meningitis in January 1994. Robert Clivilles still produces music using the C&C moniker.
