For this week’s edition of Here’s One They Made Earlier, we go all the way back to 1992. It’s sometimes hard to believe this was now 30 years ago – but an awful lot of records from this era still stand out today simply because of their sheer focus on quality.
Taking a look at who was involved, it’s no wonder. The song was written by Lem Springsteen, with production by himself and John Ciafone. At the time, their Mood II Swing project was in its infancy, but the quality here remains exceptional. The vocals by Silvano Nieves are also fantastic, as are the two mixes provided by Kenny Dope and Louie Vega – the Masters At Work who had very much found their sound by 1992.
So is it any wonder that “Helpless (I Don’t Know What To Do Without You)” is still remembered so well now?
