"Right, let's have a listen then."

That's the autobiography title right there.

There was an interview somewhere with Mark Saunders (it may even have been on the old official website) where he talks about working on the track in the studio. He says he presented Vince with a version of Blue Savannah featuring some slide guitar from a samples pack he thought fit perfectly with it. His intention was for them to be on the album version.

Vince didn't like it thought, so it didn't make it into the final cut.

I can't remember if the interview mentioned anything about the twelve inch version or not, but those samples certainly made it into MS's extended mix!

Saunder's remix is such a thing of beauty. It's one of my all time favorite tracks to listen to when I get ready to go out!! 8-)

Since we (or maybe just me!) can't reply in the news section, I wanted to comment about Vince's tweet that Pughie posted.

They are working on a "re-working" of Blue Savannah. Does this mean a new BS single??? (Blue Savannah 2019 Mix)

And if not, how will it be released? Seems like a 30th Anniversary Wild! re-release would be the perfect place for such a track, but we know it won't be on there.
