Book Of Love – Boy (US 12″)

The follow up to “I Touch Roses” , an interesting message which is still relevant today. A touch of “Push It” beats (Salt n Pepa)

In the capable hands of Ivan Ivan and Steve Peck it is a pure synth sound for 1985 with a knowing retro feel to it. The Bells are actually real and not sampled , being played by band member Ted Ottaviano.

The Dub mix is a little harder for dancefloor purposes and the pick of the bunch.

“Book Of Love” sounds a bit New Order-ish, more Indie sounding but still pure synths.

Simple but effective until those bloody doorbells kick in, I blame Mike Oldfield.
