The World Is Cold And Times Are Bad

In 1987 Ce Ce Rogers and Marshall Jefferson made Someday, one of the definitive early house music records and the first house record released on a major label. From the warm, bouncing bassline to Ce Ce's vocal and the optimism of the lyrics, it is a record that leaves better than when it found you.

A tune and a half that I have never tired of.

"It doesn't have to be like this" - a thought that has gone through my head on more than a few occasions and then I see some cunt in his new Mercedes or Land Rover park over two parking spaces or listen to some Tory minister and then realise sadly it does.

Thanks Michael. Photo was taken by me in Chorlton earlier this year. I ,love that effect you get when the sun is low and there's a glare.

One of those tracks you can't discuss House Music without mentioning. Right around this time the big three +1 began to solidify a sound that was American House - not just Chicago, New York, Newark or Detroit House but a richer, stronger House that began to break down the fences and expand.
I'm kind of passionate about House from 87 - 95. Soulful, Deep and with a Message, House Music from this period became my focus more than any other genre of music.
Marshall Jefferson seems to have set out to make a piece of music worthy of the expanded reach being on Atlantic would afford him. CeCe Rogers was well up for the task of performing the vocal and set the bar high for what came after.
