I found this one on my, sometimes costly, travels around Discogs. Despite being a huge Goldie fan, I had never heard it before, and was not disappointed when I found the YouTube video.
I know nothing the Pat Metheny group other that what Discogs told me; they are a “jazz fusion band founded in 1977 around a core nucleus of guitarist Pat Metheny and keyboardist Lyle Mays.”
The original mix of Across The Sky is quite a relaxed and pleasant downtempo affair, but Goldie completely switches it up for his 1998 drum and bass take on it.
It’s a much darker and builds ominously as it progresses, with but a few elements of the original remaining as it gets the Rufige treatment.
On the vinyl you also get another alternate Goldie mix, and will set you back a mammoth 50 pence on Discogs.
