I believe in miracles

There's been a huge buzz on a version of the great 'I believe in miracles' track. Most famously performed by The Jackson Sisters, but written and actually first recorded by Mark Capanni. Apparently only pressed as a Capitol promo, which of the majority probably were destroyed. Prominent soul DJ's, working at Capitol at the time don't recall to have known about the track. Now it's been blowing up big time within some discerning circles (though known before this within the even more discerning soul circles, especially up here in Scandinavia). And rightly so. It's quite different to the Jackson Sisters version, and not really comparable, but it's a really a fantastic song.

The most recent version is by the Sunlightsquare Latin Combo. Actually just recently released, and available as a quite limited 7". Again not really any reason to compare to the other versions, but this one is certainly a party starter. Go seek if you want one, it's soon gone.
