While it's undeniable that Eric B & Rakim crafted and concocted classic after classic back in the Golden Era of the late 80's and early 90's, very few of their records could ever be classified as 'dancefloor fillers'. But that's exactly what 'I Know You Got Soul' was.
The duo's third single was released at a time when their debut LP, 1987's 'Paid in Full' was already being hailed as a game-changer. Rakim's smooth but sombre flow had introduced new phrases to the hip-hop lexicon, while the barrage of James Brown samples had declared open season on the Godfather of Soul's back catalogue.
The original 7" was released in a no-frills generic sleeve. This reissue comes with a brand new cover utilising some of Dan Lish's trademark artwork.
