Like a lot of people, I first heard this on the Let’s Go/Next Plateau compilation, “Red Alert Goes Berserk” back in 1987 and to this day it still blows my mind everytime I hear it. This was my introduction to the ‘Nautilus’ bassline and everytime it was sampled after this, I thought, “Damn! They sampled ‘Bait’ (What did I know about breaks back then?). This version, unlike the one on the Red Alert LP, is the full-length. It was previously only available on a mega-rare Japanese 45 but Ultra was gracious enough to include it on the ‘Critical Beatdown’ remastered CD last year.
