Opaz I Don't Want It 1993

This tune and his other one 'When We're Making Love' (which I can't find an image for) were works of genius back in the day. Absolute perfect production throughout. When everybody else was sampling Soul II Soul style beats he was using live musicians to produce, in my eyes, two epic songs. It's a real talent to be able to make a tune last 8 minutes as it is and barring Innocence's classic 'Natural Thing' there wasn't too many around of this quality. This is real soul music with enough lazy brass to make it jump into the jazz section as well. Amazing. Apart from the more discerning pirate radio djs I am shocked that I have never heard this on mainstream radio, maybe it's better that way..
