a desert road from vegas to nowhere

A:XUS
CALLIN' U/GONE
guidance, 1999
one for these early stormy summer days/nights, another from my golden house years and another classic from the Guidance recordings stables. austin bascomb a.k.a ABACUS a.k.a A:XUS cut off the cheese from the original version and delivered a fine slice of deep jam featuring naomi n'sembi's sultry vocals. lots of samples from this interesting producer (and many others) on guidance's playground so enjoy the ride.
love and joy to all of you out there.

I never thought the original version was cheesy at all. I always thought it was soulful and haunting. Are we thinking about the same "original version" (Jevetta Steele/Bob Telson from the Bagdad Cafe Soundtrack?)

Thanks.

hi nick
you're right about the OV, i listened to it again and it's better than i remembered. i guess hearing it over and over back then wore it off for me!

I really liked the original as well. Haunting and ... yeah what Nick said!! ;) ...!

Nice to hear an alternative. Would be nice to have the original to compare it.

(nothing like a lil' controversy to fire up the comments section)
