Musik Kontrapunkt Kontrol, out of Reykjavik, an amazing blog that mostly focuses on italo-disco, recently posted this amazing discovery.
It’s the rare original version of the Rave classic, “It’s A Fine Day” which was made famous by Opus III feat. Kirsty Hawkshaw. Edward Barton was a poet and folk song writer who joined with his girl, Jane, and put out an album of all accapella folk songs in 1983.
Edward Barton would go on to become so regarded in the rave community that there is a full cover album of their work with artists like 808 State, Inspiral Carpets and A Guy Called Gerald.
It’s stunning. Go check it out!
