Never Gonna Let You Go (Theo Parrish Ugly Edit)

HOLY SHIT! Arguably the finest edit series ever, and among the best work of Detroit legend Theo Parrish's career, the Ugly Edits are frankly legendary. Extended and looped to insanity, EQed and pressed with the rough and raw sound that Theo's known for, this was disco as house music, packed with the speaker freaking energy of a Ron Hardy set. Now, nearly two decades on, Theo teams up with Prime Direct Distribution for a new series which officially licenses the cuts, and places them back to back with the original track, both remastered and cut loud on either side of a 12 inch.

Kicking things off we have one of Theo’s most treasured cuts, his ‘Ugly Edit’ of Made In USA - Never Gonna Let You Go, bootlegged endlessly in the past and racking up prices of up to £144 on Discogs it’s a high time an official reissue came around.
As iconic an edit as they get, ‘Never Gonna Let You Go’ encompasses everything great about Theo’s energy behind the decks - extending grooves for longer than anyone else even dare, working the EQ’s like a god and throwing in a bit of that raw magic that only he knows how. Taking the original’s sumptuous breakdown, Theo works it into a spirited, high energy disco workout looped into a near 10-minute stomper, big on the bass and brass fire whilst leaving the vocals at the door.
On the B side the original ’77 Made In USA version is laid out in all it’s glory. Funk powered, horn-laden disco goodness with breath-taking vocals from the Stateside troupe.

STAFF COMMENTS

Patrick says: And we’re off! Prime coming through with the officially licensed, remastered reissues of Theo’s Ugly Edit series. Starting at the beginning, we have the hi-NRG, rough and raucous extension of Made In USA’s “Never Gonna Let You Go”. If you don’t know, get to know!
