Straight fire Paradise Garage classic..A ‘must-have’ in any DJ case and a ‘must-be’ on every ‘all time Disco list’, “Let No Man Put Asunder” was much more than a feminist anthem or underground Disco hit, as it represented a standard for a whole generation.
The acappella of this timeless Disco classic is arguably among the most sampled and re-mixed ever in the history of the Dance Music.
Shep Pettibone’s version for “Let No Man Put Asunder” on A side became an instant classic; the single also had a version by the Warehouse resident DJ Frankie Knuckles on the opposite side. The acappella and the fact that both versions were made by heros of the quality music scene from that time made this the most special release of this classic.
Strange as it may seem, the credits for this tune point the production date on 1977, but this single in particular with its versions and acappella was only released years later, in 1983. This was therefore the first pressing with the quintessential acappella by the diva Rochelle Fleming, a true relic.
I go through phases on which version is my favourite but cant decide, but out of them all I probably play the Ron Hardy Mix the most. One day I will play like 7/8 versions back-to-back just in appreciation! I hope you are there to witness that, i’m already looking forward to it.
