I’m sharing with you a rare alternate mix of Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers’ “When The Light Gone Out,” a stunning track off my favorite ZM&MM album ‘ONE BRIGHT DAY. I’ve heaped so much praise on their first 2 albums with Virgin Records here at MIDNIGHT RAVER. Both albums (Conscious Party, One Bright Day) are produced by Talking Heads’ Chris Frantz and Tina Weymouth, musical geniuses in their own right, who were part of a small group of post-punk bands responsible for bringing us a little something called “alternative” rock. Ziggy gets a producing credit on this album also. I challenge you to find a bad tune on this album. Sure, they explore different styles, just like they do with all of their albums. But not a bad tune here. Let me tell you, I wore this one out in 1989/1990. WOE IT OUT!
So I’ve had this vinyl single for as long as I can remember, but did not realize it was an alternate mix until just recently when I was digitizing it. If you know the album version, the alternate mix is instantly recognizable. If you are not familiar with the album version, I’m sure there are at least 1 maybe 2 out there, then I’ve included it here for comparison.
So here is my ZM&MM “When The Light Gone Out”/”Version” (Alternate Mix) 7″ 45 rpm pressed on the Ghetto Youths United label.
