I think this was c.1985 but not 100% sure.
This one has always stumped me because the
hook sounded familiar but I could never
ID the song.

Wow, that's awesome! The song is called "A River To A Sea" by a group called "Private Lives". Their album is entitled "Prejudice And Pride" and is absolutely SUPERB!!! I highly recommend you pick it up! (I've seen it on Ebay quite a number of times). The version you played sounds like a remix or an extended version. That's cool to know it was played on the airwaves at some point.

Thx Cory for the ID. I found the album and the
12'' this afternoon and just have to wait for
them to arrive.
CFNY must have played it a bit since I had it on
cassette twice.

You're welcome...I've never actually been able to find the 12" of "River To A Sea"...when you get it, let me know what tracks are on it...I'm curious to see if they ever had any b-sides or cool mixes. I'd love to hear the 12" if you get a chance to digitize it to MP3/CD-R.



From helix, 12/12/2002 3:04:07 PM:

The 12'' has 4 track. The mix in question is
the dub mix on the 'b' side.

I'll need an email address in order to pursue this
further. If you want to keep yours private, get a
hotmail address - it'll go away in 30 days without
further action on your part.

I'll likely reply same day.

Did you ever come across the remixes/B-sides to this? If so, I'd be very interested in having them. This thread caused me to go out and get the album when it appeared...and I have loved the material ever since.
