The Police – Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic (7″)

Before the original 80’s Vinyl Gems disappeared into Googles Vault- never to be seen again. I had great fun listening to a load of 7″ singles I had found. Easy to rip and still a little crackly in places I loved hearing the B-sides again. So with this in mind and whilst the Copyright Coast is clear. I’m going to dust off some more. Remember it’s the B-sides that are the forgotten gems!!

First up is this catchy tune from 1981. By The Police at the height of their powers. I love rediscovering the synth in here by Jean Roussel. The B-side “Flexible Strategies” is a funky, improvised jam, horns and all!

Back to the track in question, dance beats, guitars, sampled beats and snarly vocals. Some parts remind me of Ministry , others of New Order.

The B-side “North Of Eden (Potlach Mix)” is slow , atmospheric and very interesting.

Long live Independent Bands!
