I WANT TO BE FREE (7 INCH)
Essential reggae reissue.
Following their reissue of Double Talk last year, Emotional Rescue continue their run of reggae and lovers rock celebrations with another crucial cut from Red Cloud. Through the 80s, Red Cloud released on Tuff Gong, Echo and Red Stripe Records amongst others, but they also made an early appearance on seminal New Jersey label Dancefloor with an evergreen double A-side. The first track, 'Double Talk', was already reissued last year, so now it's the turn of the flip, 'I Want To Be Free'. The uptempo slice of reggae sounds as infectious and incisive as it did in 1983, and this time it comes with a dub on the B-side simply titled 'Freedom'. [info sheet from distr.]
