After 19 years I still don’t know whether I like this track or not.
I like the idea of it and most of the time will play the instru-mental mix rather than vocal Ibiza 90 mix. I also loved the fact that when I dropped it in the pub where I djed, I would get some long hair or double denim clad type coming up and calling it sacrelidge and how dare I play this rubbish, which just made me play it all the more.
I bought Jam on The Mutha’s cover of Hotel California in the remix format first as it was remixed by the Orb and Orb remixes were always worth the money , it was also in the bargain bin, so I couldn’t really lose.
I know very little about Jam on The Mutha, apart from the fact that it seems to be one of Youth’s many guises and that Hotel California was released on Wau! Mr Modo, the same label as The Orb at the time.
I will make one statement for the defence in the case for the release of this record, it was 1990 and the E’s were very good.
