Part of the Blacksmith Remixes & Productions Playlist:
Life was released in 1989 along with the Brixton Bass Remix 12 inch. I got this from the follow up 1990 CD single 'Keep It Together'.
The volume was a little bit low compared to the way tracks sound nowadays so I set about boosting it up a little. After applying several processes I ended up with this - it's so good I'm claiming that it has been remastered! It came out so well I actually surprised myself! (see below for details on the software used). To get any better than this you'd need to go back to the master tape the CD was made from or even the original multi-track master tape itself.
It seems like this version is shorter than the one on the remix 12 inch (4 mins 58 secs vs 7 mins 10 secs). There was I also a Dub and an Upso Mix which I've never heard as I didn't buy this 12 inch at the time, I only bought the original version of 'Life'.
