Baby I Love You So

I couldn't let Colourbox go by without posting this, the A-side to the 12" single with Tuesday's postee Looks Like We're Shy One Horse on the flip. Baby I Love You So is a cover of an Augustus Pablo track. This is electronic dub at it's best- big, swirly sound with swathes of colourful synths, a massive bassline, reverby guitars, samples and vocals from Lorita Grahame. Seven minutes or so of wonder. Play it back to back with Looks Like... for full effect.

Sublime. Seven minutes of wonder does indeed sum it up. Graet vocal from Lorita.

Am loving the Colourbox stuff. Nothing I don't already have, but have played all the tracks you've posted as soon as I've seen them crop up here. Well ahead of their time - fuck me, Pump Up The Volume was 1987!

Colourbox have always been one of my favourite bands/acts,they made some incredible records of which this has to be the classiest of the lot.

It sounded great in 1986,it sounds even better 25 years on.
