From 1985 and coming off the back of the hugely successful World Machine stuff this was the band returning to their Jazz Funk roots, it was like them saying, “This is what we originally about, musicianship and groove” So this contained much more obscurer tracks, an effort not leave the original fans behind. It preceded the release of their first live album, the double-album, “A Physical Presence.” It came with the sleeve note
This EP was recorded in England by the Rolling Stones Mobile during March 1985 at The Coronet Woolwich, The Hexagon Reading and Goldiggers Chippenham.
So no Birmingham N.E.C. or Wembley Stadium.
The 4 taster tracks include a new song, “Follow Me” which is a remixed version of the live recording and exclusive to this E.P. “Mr. Pink” , a long instrumental, originally it appeared on 1982’s “The Early Tapes,” amazing bass playing. “Kansas City Milkman” came from the 1984 album, “True Colours.”
“Turn It On” closes the E.P, a 1981 track from their debut album and my favourite here.
