Image: 1610898 Previously unreleased version of I’m Afraid The Masquerade Is Over!

This is a must have record and supplies are extremely limited. Long
out of print and extremely sought after, David Porter’s “I’m Afraid The
Masquerade Is Over” gets a proper re-issue on 45, but with a special
twist. First released in 1972, this groundbreaking masterpiece was mostly
overlooked by the masses of that generation. However, twenty plus years
later, hip hop producers would revive newfound interests in this cut (and
Porter’s other works) after sampling bits & pieces of it for some of the
most defning songs of the mid 90’s and early 2000’s (Who Shot Ya,
Duel Of The Iron Mic, It’s Over, etc). For this special edition, the original
multi-track session was resurrected from the archives, re-polished and
re-edited into a brand new mix for your listening pleasure. Familiar fans
will go emoji crazy once they get a taste of the exclusive new version
that boasts new breaks, alternate takes and a louder, fuller instrumental
presence among other goodies, creating fresh opportunities for beats
and lives mixes. Pushing the 9 minute mark, parts 1 & 2 are presented
between 2 sides, presenting the all of music in it’s entire glory. Original
pressings of “I’m Afraid The Masquerade Is Over” are not easy to come
by. Own this collector’s item while you can. “Must have” vinyl for DJ’s,
producers and anyone else on the hunt
