- Golden Clouds by Lee Scratch Perry & The Orb
Here’s one that could go badly wrong, hey? I have to admit that before I put the needle down on the groove I had massive reservations about this...I mean, it’s a dub reworking of The Orb’s classic ‘Little Fluffy Clouds’ (one of the best songs ever) with legendary dub dinosaur Lee Scratch Perry chatting some stuff over the top, and while I’m not averse to these kinds of collaborations it seems a shame to drag your classics into it.
In fact the original tune has been reworked heavily with crisp beats and throbbing bass taking the fore over some distant watery guitar samples and it’s not really until halfway through when the songs distinctive guitar shimmers and bloopy melodies are introduced that it really drops, and even then the Rickie Lee Jones speech samples are dispensed with altogether. It’s actually a fairly chilled out, inoffensive and listenable cut and it’s not nearly as embarrassing as it had the potential to be, but that said, I’m not going to sit here and pretend that it holds a candle to the original.
