I think I originally acquired this single in hopes of it being the one that contained the acoustic/demo version of It Wont Be Long, which the one I initially acquired isnt, but because it had the 8-minutes-plus-long Infinite Dub of Falling I cherished this single. The original songs great, Ode To Boy is the epiphanic reworking of its Yaz base and I love it even more, but this long ambient mix of Falling is wonderful for immersion when I need to disconnect from my surroundings and get some serious design work done, or when I just want to fly for awhile. A similar track is Daniel Bélangers Fugue en Sol Inconnu (on his album Rêver Mieux).
Why the release with the elusive acoustic version of It Wont Be Long took me until 2008 to find, I truly dont know. But find it I did, and its quite welcome in my collection: thats a good song, with or without its album-version arrangement, and to hear Moyets voice singing it from the core is lovelyas is hearing the context of her songwriting partner Pete Glenister singing it with her. I love Moyets studio albums, but this kind of glimpse is very much appreciated to round things out a little more.
