'Crimson/Red' these past months has had me on a quite a Prefab Sprout kick. I don't have too many of the band's "rarities"... 'Steve McQueen' and 'Jordan: The Comeback' (and even 'Swoon' a bit these days) are my go-to records... but I did recently pull out the old crappy USB turntable to transfer this wonderfully done extended version of "Looking for Atlantis." You get nearly three-and-a-half minutes more than the version on 'Jordan: The Comeback,' and producer Thomas Dolby added some great touches without overwhelming the original song. "Looking for Atlantis" was the first single from the album and another in a long line of modestly successful singles in the UK (No. 51 in 1990). If you like Paddy & Co., I think you're really going to dig this one.
