City Of Dreams' boogie, soul and funk reissues rarely disappoint. Predictably, this is another killer. Gina's "Hooked On Love" remains something of a delicious oddity: a cover of the Leroy Burgess-boasting Aleem classic of the same name, sung by mysterious vocalist Gina, and produced by the Aleem brothers themselves. While their original version was a surging, piano-heavy stomper blessed with Burgess's trademark vocals, the Gina cover re-casts it as a breezy, synthesizer-heavy boogie/ pop hybrid in the manner of very early Madonna recordings. It's a fine record, and comes accompanied with not only the superb original instrumental, but also a previously unheard "Basement Tape" version rescued from the archives.
