Police And Thieves [YouTube Video] .....I heard this on Johnnie Walkers Radio 2 show a while back, and had forgotten the exquisite intro, with the drum roll, organ and 'compressed' other instruments......just lovely.
The Apr 1980 reissue of this track featured a different Side B, so is not linked......WIP 6539
Play "Silly Games" right after hearing this and Janet Kay was obviously a fan.(Listen at SC 2).
Her record was produced by Patrick at Arawak Productions, a giant black dude who I knew when he had a shop in Harlesden, next to ALL EARS, the shop owned by Andy Sojka of Atmosfear, whose 12" single version was originally put out on their own label, Elite records. I distributed that copy as a favour to Andy and Gerry (Pike) as they were customers of mine, and Andy was a likeable rogue, who sadly died way too young.
