Boy's Own Recordings - The Twelves #5
The fifth release on the label saw the return to the studio of the members responsible for BOIX1. I don't think that people took to Substance the way they did to raise. If I remember right I wasn't that impressed when I first put it on the turntable but after a few spins it grew on me and in the here and now it sounds really good. I'm not sure that if I were listening to it for the first time I could place it to 1990 until flipped over, the b-side is firmly of it's time. There was also a remix 12" with three versions by the Moody Boys which are less than essential, it is probably best to stick to the a side of the original release although the b-side is also worth a listen.
