Odyssey vs. Slave - Inside Out/Watching You

Actually, can someone explain this? I think "Inside Out" is a disaster!
Why use the same track for both songs? eek

shrug a matter of personal preference i guess.
Why elements of the same track were recorded for both tracks is something the artists themselves could explain.

I love this song, especially the 12"version. This song was ghost written by Steve Arrington and had the same musicians that played on "Watching You". "Inside Out", is to me, a D.J.'s dream. When mixing the two, you really don't have to adjust much.

I have 3 different mixes from "Inside Out". The album-mix, extended-mix and single-mix.
The last one is my fave and contains great arranged strings at the intro which makes it richer.

Surprisingly, both tracks have different writers :

I remember reading in the album-linernotes that bassplayer Sandy Anderson (from the group Unlimited Touch) performed on "Inside Out".
There has been a discussion about that on Youtube.
There were also more other musicians (not from Slave) credited in those same linernotes.
Although claimed that the whole writer/musicians-credits are wrapped in a ghost-package, i'm still somewhat sceptical about it.

I read an article a few years ago about it, and it stated that Steve had a hand in writing it, but was not credited. It went on to say that Odyssey didn't take this one...Jimmy Douglass was the co-producer for the Stone Jam album, and he was the producer for the Odyssey album this track was on, and he got some of the band members from Slave to do they thang on it.

Well....maybe a little. But, if it works, why mess with it.

Exactly. You don't even need a pitch control on the turntables to mix those two.

I call myself cheating when I put my finger on the record to slow it down a little rather than matching the tempo fully with the pitch control. With those two jams, you don't even need your finger. lol
