I have this 12" Single. But, my copy is not a Promo variant. Same label as the promo version, with the exception of not saying "Demonstration Not For Sale" on the labels. Completely different from the other 12" version listed on the database.

It is the ONLY and correct full versions masters put on a faultless 12" single. The long and full version of TSOP released here is what was edited and used as the Soul Train TV show theme. The 7" does not do the track any justice, but is great fodder for the Wurlitzer

According to many, this is the "one" that founded the Garage Sound, a tune Championed by the man Himself Larry Levan Back in the 70's & 80's, at the Paradise Garage & many other venues to have graced his presence. Love is the Message was to become the pre-eminent sound that created the vibe. Check out the tune when it breaks down mid way through, it definately has all the hallmarks. This is a masterpiece that has brought us all so far until theis present day. Long live the Garage Sound, thanks to Mother Father Sister Brother (MFSB).
