The final release from Canadian New Wave The Arrows. Drum machine (it’s a 12″ mix) over a light rock arrangement produced by fellow Canadian David Tyson and band leader Dean McTaggart.
The other involved were ; Backing Vocals – Al Van Wart, Eddie Schwartz, Bass Clarinet, Tenor Saxophone – Earl Seymour (Blood, Sweat and Tears), Bass Guitar – Howard Ayee (Rough Trade), Peter Bleakney (Take your pick!) Drums – Gary Craig, Michael Sloski (mmm take your pick) Guitar – Doug Macaskill, Keyboards – Rob Gusevs, Percussion – Matt Zimbel (Manteca) and Keyboards, Backing Vocals – David Tyson
It’s the 80’s so there is a large dose of sax as well as being quite funky. The Dub is very electronic and has suitably strong bass.
The B-side is an album cut , a bit AOR with a more than average dose of synths. Plenty of guitar solo’s
