Green Velvet - Portamento Tracks

See all those remixes of Flash that did the rounds ad nausea till everyone was sick of them? Get them to FUCK - this is the real deal. The track that led to a generation of UK clubbers wanting to take laughing gas originally turned up as track B1 on this EP.

This was the second Green Velvet release, after 'Velvet Tracks', and came out on Relief in 1995. I could not believe what I was hearing at first, all four of these tracks got played to death for a long time - can't believe the vinyl's held out as well as it has.

Track A2 is uncredited on the label and ends in an out of sync locked groove. I've done a wee fade on it for you.

Any time I saw him live around this time (in either guise) he got those vocals nailed by singing into a set of headphones plugged into the mic socket. Don't try this at home kids...
