Sterling Void & Paris Brightledge – It’s All Right ( House Mix ) [1987]

A track that needs almost no introduction, its the first track ever released from Sterling Void and what a track it is. Conscious lyrics, great string work and that bassline rolling around in the back, a great example of proper House Music. Produced by the legendary Marshall Jefferson, the track was actually covered by the Pet Shop Boys a couple of years after this was released. Did you know that? No, neither did I. Know why? The PSB version is shite! It completely misses the soul and optimisim in this track, sacrificing that message for some weak socio-political commentary.

For me the track says but one thing;

“Sure, its not perfect… but it’ll get better”
