UB40 ‎– Here I Am (Come And Take Me) (US Promo 12″)

A couple of reggae-lite offerings for today.

Kicking off with UB40 and their ’89 release from the “Labour Of Love II” album. Here with a couple of rare remixes. A cover of the Al Green track from 1973.

Came across some technical info as at the time the band were embracing the new technology. “Roland S-50 snare drums mixed with Oberheim DMX snare drums and the Roland D-50 internal patch “Horn Section”- I have an S-50 but couldn’t get it to sound like that 🙂

The “Dance Mix” has a lot of dub effects on the horns and a different bass line. The longer “21 ” ” mix is an extended version of the 7.”

The B-side originally written by Bobby Rogers and Smokey Robinson is a nice bonus.

The “The Way You Do The Things You Do (Remix)” by Jungle Zone Productions has a different bass line and a shuffle dance beat, as well as some nice synth pads.
