Reworkings of Brimful of Asha by...
Brimful of Asha was released 20 years ago, so by way of celebration Ample Play present 4 different versions of the song that brings constant sunshine, replete with all the original musicians. The EP includes a version for every season, from the Hammond drenched ‘Jimmy Smith Mix’ to the psychedelic tape reverse of ‘Arthur Alexander Mix’ , through the strung out instrumental of the ‘Avenue Strings Mix’ to the orchestral accompaniment of the ‘Florence Ballard Mix’…. each version reveals a new way of seeing this perennial classic.
Whilst band are in the studio working on an imminent new album, in parallel let’s celebrate Cornershop’s back catalogue. Version.
