... and we wild pass through the darkness... 4LW

4LW signature appears here without a dot, and A-side track heading (TOP on other versions) is missing.

Exactly the same pressing as ’Joe Smooth Inc. Featuring Anthony Thomas - The Promised Land’, except that the A-side label doesnt have "Anthony Thomas" underlined on this edition.

The track titled Radio mix is from memory the freestyle mix as someone may have already pointed out, which is actually the opposite of your typical radio type mix, its a really nice dub version that gets over looked but holds its own.
what an absolutly amazing track,, promise land,, apeard on 1 of the deep heart series albums. this tune is so nice, very happy and emotional... one of the best in its era...
How classic can you go? Do you remember the first time you fell in love? In 1987 I was 11 years old and when I heard this record I knew instantly for sure "I am in love with house music".

Now almost 20 years later this record has not lost any of its vibes and lyrics. Warm sounds are complemented with true vocals that still are meaningfull in many ways.

How many records in this genre deal with social issues? Besides "Joe Smooth's Promised Land" I can also think about the work of "Inner City" and "Rise from the Grave" composed by "Phuture aka DJ Pierre".

This record is one for my funeral.
Almost 20 years after its initial impact, this record is still serving its life sentence in my record crate, all chances of parole out the window. Unlike many of its conteporaries, it will never see what that room in the back of my garage called "The Archives" looks like. 'The Promised Land' is one of those increasingly rare moments you'd look forward to at 8:00am when you're once again level with the physical universe and dreading the sound of chirping birds. Somehow - some way or another - Joe Smooth makes it all... smooth again...

... of course, those angels that come down and spread their wings like doves help him out with the feat.
Sundaymorning, 7 am. You have been dancing and jumping around at this beach party since 11 pm last night, meeting new people and having a good time in general. The place is still packed. You look at the sea, you know the sun is about to rise. And at that exact point in time and space, with the sun rising, the DJ drops "The Promised Land" by Joe Smooth, the ultimate housemusic celebration and sing-along anthem. You get overwhelmed by feelings of joy, get tears in your eyes and you hug people you have never met before. This is the true house feeling. Welcome to the family.
