Just about towards the end of it’s shelf life from the heavily milked, “Raw & The Cooked,” their 2nd album, with this 1990 release. (The Record company even released the “Raw And The Remixed” – talk about flogging it to death) Given a flute-enhanced mix on “Ploeg Club Mix”, plenty of layered beats and a funky groove. The track was given some great backing vocals by The Mint Juleps. (a group in their own right back in the 80’s) The live track is from the live video and as you can see they were pretty slick.
The mix of “Johnny Come Home” just sounds odd with the lyrics not really sitting with the backing.
