It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
I've got a stinking cold and am not in the best of moods at the moment, so something that makes me think of warmer climes is the order of the day. I suppose I should have posted this a few weeks ago when SA was doing his Balearic week over at the Bagging Area.
This is another of those times when the b-side of a Saint Etienne single is far better than the flip, well only the second time now I come to think of it the other time being People Get Real which was far superior to Join Our Club, for me anyway. But then again that was a double a side. So really this is the only example I have of the b-side being better.
I never really liked Nothing Can Stop Us, not sure what it was about it but I just could never take to it. However Speedwell, I fell for straight away, the original but even more so the flying mix. It just totally fit in with the vibe of 1991 along with Orchestra JB and the original mix of Fallen. These were the kinds of thing that I couldn't get enough of at the time and still hit the spot.
My weekend is now going to be spent trying to locate that "Ibiza" tape from back in 1991 that had all of those tunes on it or try to re-create it.
Have a good weekend people.
