Turn back the clock to 1983 when Canadian label Street-Level Records released "Are you lonely" by Hipnotic, a classic slab of rare funk/soul/boogie whose original 12" pressing is hard to get hold off (don't get fooled by the various bootlegs/re-issues floating around). Now this dateless gem produced and co-written by the legendary Philly soul maestro Allan Felder (who has written unforgettable songs for the O'Jays, Delfonics and others) returns in a jaw-dropping selection of re-imaginations by the likes of SanFranDisko, John Julius Knight, Greg Wilson & Che Wilson, Opolopo, Yam Who? and The Revenge all adding their magical touch. The original version is also included, making this an amazing trip down memory lane...
