Chris Bailey - 1993 - Do They Come From You

While this looks like an ordinary single off the excellent return-to-form Savage Entertainment  , the song is richly remixed and greatly enhanced in dramatic fashion. The strings, already lush on the LP, all but take over the songs here, making Bailey's anguished, soul-searching bellow all the more remarkable . "Just Like Fire Would" is re-recorded here as an acoustic folky/bluesy song -- slower, more wistful, and more sorrowful where the All Fools Day original was boisterous and confident. More great work! "Mystery Train" is closer to the spirit of Junior Parker's original than Elvis Presley's Sun session single. The same elements feed John Phillips' folk storytelling "Me and My Uncle," like a bad Western about card playing, boozing, deception, and ultimately a murder of greed. The Southern blues of Jimmy Reed's "Bright Lights, Big City" ends this special EP.
