    No doubt, “I Need You Now” by Sinnamon is one of the most sampled recordings ever.
    During the past three decades, this R & B/Soul/Dance/Funk/Electronic track has become a classic club anthem.
    Now, thanks to a skillfully edited version of the original recording dubbed “I Need You Now (Moplen Edit)” by Luca Locatelli, Stevette Music is pleased to be a part of the 30th Anniversary re-mastered release of this timeless masterpiece.
    Included on this release is a bonus of the song’s very basic tracks from a cassette tape that has also endured and survived over this period of time. It represents a point in time, in fact 1979, when five very young men, barely in their twenties, went into a studio totally unrehearsed, and “nailed” those tracks in one take.
    Later, on overdubbed tracks, Andre Booth who wrote “This Beat Is Mine” by Vickie D, would become one of the first keyboard players to utilize a synthesizer on a dance record.
    On subsequent overdubs, R. Bernard Fowler, would lend his powerful voice to the song as lead & background vocalist.
    LaForrest Cope, who wrote Whitney Houston’s “You give Good Love”, and Jacqueline Sampson would also contribute their soulful vocals as background singers.
    I am confident that all will enjoy this latest rendition, true to the original version.

    Everything started a few months ago when Stephen Cumberbatch (the writer of "I Need You Now") left his comment on my edit:

    "I wrote, recorded, and produced this song back in 1979, with R. BERNARD FOWLER as lead vocalist. Way before the Peech Boys.
    This song is where they got "Don't Make Me Wait" from, the opening line to " I Need You Now".
    Moplen, I wish you had been around to mix this back "in the day".
    You did a great job!!!!
    We only need to pressure a record company to re-release your mix.
    This is hot!!!!

    Stephen Cumberbatch"
