Torch Song “Can’t Find My Way Home (12” mix) 1986

Very much a labour of love. I thought Laurie and William’s version of the old Blind Faith standard was superb.

Soon after this I became an official band member, although it was nearly 10 years until we put an album out, so there’ll be a good few more posts before we get there.

    Pally, superb doesn’t even begin to enter into it!! This is undoubtedly one of the finest covers I have ever heard. What you do with this number is nothing short of breathtaking. The relentless pulsing drone of the synthesizers contrasting with Orbit’s acid-tinged guitars really take me places. Mayer’s feminine etherics were not a million miles away from the admittedly asexual tones of Steve Winwood on the original, interestingly enough. But ultimately, it’s the bass harmonics that kill me on the backing vocals! Every single time I listen to this track the hairs on my arms stand on end. When I listen to it loud on the main system with subwoofers… ooof! Transporting!

    it was years later I heard Winwood do an acoustic version of this at the Albert Hall, matching the B-Side mix for chills…

      Thanks for that! I plan to make a new video splicing the two versions…
