The Charlatans ‎– Over Rising (12″)

The last one by the mighty Charlatans and more of an E.P. than a single release. Released in February ’91 this saw the band trying to find a direction and using 4 different mix engineers in the process and using a new producer in David M. Allen

The lead track uses Mark Stent at the mixing desk and has more piano on it than usual and the psychedelic rock elements are back, almost a nod to the Roses. The cool and laidback groove of “Way Up There” mixed by Steve Power and having more than a little of The Doors about it.

On the B side Flood mixes the Chris Nagle produced “Opportunity Three”, dance groove, more electronic and aimed at the dancefloor but with some great guitar work, the highlight of the E.P. at 7 and a half minutes long and different than the one that appeared on “Melting Pot.”

Closing with the retro sounding “Happen To Die” mixed by Will Gosling and fading out just when it was getting going 😦
