Atomic Records WNRCD 188

Early 1993 this unheard of group caught my eye, it's easy to see what attracted my attention...

Hope, tracks 2 & 4, remix & additional production by D-Influence for D-I Sound Productions. At the time D-Influence could do no wrong. Their album was awesome, the singles were essential and their (Kwame Kwaten & Ed Baden-Powell) remixes were of great interest. It just so happens that on this release, The Boy In The Moon is also a very well handled ballad that shows that these girls have voices too. Shortly afterwards, I found a couple of other 12"s Connect and Escaping which I've now posted.

The only let down for Asia Blue is the dodgy association with a guy called Barry Blue. I didn't realise until recently that he is the 70's artist that sang Dancing On A Saturday Night in blue spandex. Now that doesn't inspire confidence. Fortunately, D-Influence do and I'm pleased that somebody came up with that sticker idea. Have a listen, Barry Blue should change his name coz he done a good job with Asia Blue.

    Do you have Asia Blue's other single, Escaping? It is another cover of Margaret's.
