a big forgotten chicago club hit from 1984! pre-house release from knight action which came out at the very beginning of electronic dance music. before house was house... before techno was born and when club music was just called disco. single girl was a big hit in chicago clubs like the music box and was played by ron hardy and all the hotmix 5 guys (farley, mickey oliver etc.) and its still a big collectors item. made with the first electronic instruments and without any pretentions... just made for the fun of making music. d-rail is one of the very first steps to jacking house music. another (almost) forgotten piece of dance music!
