Positive Things

The late Darryl Pandy’s humungous voice graced innumerable releases spanning three decades. His coup de grace was undoubtedly supplying the vocals for ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’ by Farley Jackmaster Funk, a surprise UK Top 10 in 1986. Following the success of that groundbreaking number, Pandy lent his unmistakable pipes to a slew of high quality releases, from ‘Sunshine and Happiness by Nerio’s Dubwork to the Rhythm Masters’ produced ‘Raise Your Hands’ by Big Room Girl. To commemorate the passing of such a legendary singer, here is one of his lesser-known tracks, his collaboration with Mr Roy, as released on the Fresh label in 1996. This single went inexplicably unnoticed yet serves as the archetypal example of the vocal range of the big man with an even bigger voice.
