DESCRIPTION

LIMITED EDITION RED VINYL REPRESS

Another slice of essential Knuckles / Principle magic, here the duo's love of Italo and Euro pop records seems to collide with Chicago's darkened dance-floors and raw drum machines. Perfectly sleazy and insanely danceable, Jamie Principles voice was made for Frankie Knuckles pristine productions and their unique styles compliment each other endlessly,

Both tracks featured on this 12" take us into the subterranean night life of Frankie and Jamie's world, a world of yearning, heart-break, love and acceptance. A huge pairing of tracks on their initial release and still to this day some 25+ years later, "It's A Cold World / Bad Boy" was a total game changer, almost verging on pop but too "outsider" to gain the mainstream attention it so deserved, the record stands today as a true classic. Truly ahead of it's time.

Re-released for 2015, re-mastered and re-pressed with all the original Trax label artwork present in conjunction with the official rights holders / owners.
