Most heads will flip for the transcendent 'Your Love' and though we love Frankie technically this joint Jamie Principle. Whisper it but it's all about the earlier production on the Persona pressing with the late great Mark 'Hot Rod' Trollan at the controls with the lush electronics and haunting melody in perfect harmony with Jamie’s vox taking centre stage. Still, this version formed the spine of Candi Staton and the Source's subsequent hit 'You Got The Love' so what do we know! Anyway, stay with the A-side for the freaky ‘Baby Wants To Ride’ which oozes sex and sweat with it’s sexual overtones – listen closely to the lyrics and you’ll hear that they’re a form of escapism and politically charged in reference to the Reagan-era’s ultra-conservative ideals “Ronnie wants to ride me, because he thinks he's king… But its hard to ride baby when you living in a fascist dream”. Check out Aiden's House Hunting love letter to Jamie Principle rewind on Ransom Note HERE
