About this item

Oh YES! The one everyone's been talking about, the incredible song that's the talk of the internet, at long last, and with the blessing of Mark Capanni himself, here it is as it should be, the ORIGINAL VERSION of the Jackson Sisters classic rare groove anthem "I Believe in Miracles". If you haven't heard this song yet prepare to be struck down with awe for this is one tune that I guarantee will make your eyes open and jaw drop! Sublime Axelrod-style folk-jazz orchestration backs Capanni's carefree yet poignant vocals. Recorded in 1973 and performed by Mark Capanni who co-wrote the song, this was completed and ready to go a full 14 months before the Jackson Sisters version hit the streets. Despite the Capanni version having been pressed up it failed to make an impact - too soulful for rock radio but not soulful enough for RnB radio - and the record was pulled. It was the Jackson Sisters with their full-on dancefloor funk that did the business, released in 1974 it's since gained legendary status, a musical definition of the rare groove era and with a multitude of versions and remixes. ESSENTIAL!!!!
