About this item

As you may know, Desire's "II" album was one of our favourites of 2009, so this 12" re-release has got us all excited here at Piccadilly Records HQ. Basically we get four versions of "If I Can't Hold You Tonight" spread over two sides of wax, all exclusive to this release. Singer Megan Louise is at her melancholic, sultry best here, as her vocals get pushed forward in the mix, and the backing track is stripped right down to ultra-minimal house - just a kick drum, ocassional percussion, a few chime fills and a bit of keyboard work. And then there's a shorter version of the same mix. Deeeeeep! "I Can Dream About You" is another of these "If I Can't Hold You Tonight" mixes, this time instrumental, while the final '8 Track Demo' version is more like the LP mix, but - you've already guessed it - in demo form. Delicious.
