GREAT, GREAT GREAT! I've been trying to find this one for the longest! You should post this on YouTube, but be careful: There is another artist, Jackie Mittoo posted on the same web site with his own version of "Stereo Freeze".

More Luck,

If you look on the label, you see the last name "Collins". The Collins they're referring to is my Grandfather Ronnie Collins.
