The purists won’t like this!
I absolutely love it. I know that a lot of people will be sneering at this and will accuse Lisa Stansfield of bandwagon jumping but when the result is this good who gives a fuck. Carry On is a track from Stansfield’s latest album, “Seven”, her first in ten years and the original track is good but Andy Lewis’ remix aims the track directly towards the sprung maple dancefloor and in doing so creates something really special, that stomping beat the insistent strings and Stansfield’s voice, pleading and just this side of manic at times, magic!
The song has been released as a limited 7″ single available here.
I’m not quite sure if I agree with Ian Levine’s comment that “it is the best record of the last twenty years” but I do agree that it’s the best thing that Stansfield has ever done.
Fuck the purists.
