Careful With Me
Horse's 'Careful' was first released in 1990 and constituted a pop-ballad number. Some years later it was picked up by Sasha who delivered one of the remixes of his career with the illustrious 'Sasha's horse with no name'. The track was eventually signed to Stress (whose A&R always had an ear for a killer track) and further remixes issued from Brothers In Rhythm, Jimmy Gomez and Sasha himself. The Gomez mix is my personally favourite, foregrounding a vocal which is emotive, hugely distinctive and expertly blended into the lush, epic soundscape. Gomez's ambient mix, credited to James Wiltshire, is also worthy of a listen.
