Really incredible 7". I actually like the B-side ("Breakthrough") even more and it's a Funkees release that very rarely ever gets talked about.

Does it actually have a pic sleeve? The copy I have was a plain one.

No picture sleeve on this one, the copy we found had standard EMI NIgeria blue sleeve

Excellent track... In addition, as saying by O-Dub, the flip side is excellent too : "Breakthrough" an other cover of Atomic Rooster ( This music is use in France as the end music of "La Grande Librairie" TV program.
