It's Friday . . . Let's Dance
Before Christmas Echorich reminded me of this excellent piece of Garage from 1995 using the vocal talents of Colonel Abrams, Michael Watford and Jay Williams produced by the S-Man, Roger Sanchez. If this doesn't lift your spirits on what is fast becoming the bleakest January that I can ever remember then I'm not sure much can. I apologise for the crackles as this is a tune that got frequent turntable time and not always when I was at my soberest. I suppose at the time this could be seen as a bit revivalist , even in the mid-nineties as it harks back to 1987/88. Doesn't make it any less brilliant though.
This weekend I will mostly be contemplating how to tell a twelve year old that in life you "have to take the crunchy with the smooth" as Billy Bragg so eloquently put it.
Have a good weekend people.
