Play It Again Sam 1991. BIAS 193-7
I haven’t had much time lately to do vinyl rips, hence the spate of singles.
I played this recently on a whim and realised that it’s a different version of the track to the one on the Pigeonhole album, and unlike the album version, it’s produced by the legendary Martin Hamnett of Factory fame. Oddly the B side, Pigeonhole, doesn’t appear on the Pigeonhole album.
While I prefer their later, darker material, this single is still excellent. It has the usual choppy guitar work, interesting rhythm section and great songwriting. This version has a great freeform guitar solo based more on feedback than anything else.
Unfortunately I only have the tightwad 7″ of this. If anyone can let me have a lossless rip of the CD version I’d be grateful – it has a couple of extra tracks I’ve never heard.
