Lalah Hathway Baby Don't Cry (Cry Baby Club Version) (Virgin) 1990

I love all the tunes on this blog...BUT....if you were to ask me to choose one to be buried with...I think it might be this one. The Crybaby Club version of this really does it for me. The chimes sound is just unforgettable and unmistakable. Sounds like it is borrowed from the Brothers Johnson bomb 'Stawberry Letter 23' and used in a different pitch. Her vocals are just brilliant, unsurprising maybe considering her father is Donny Hathaway. The bassline just plods on.....ahhhhhh this is sublime... When I turn the radio on-WHY DO I NOT HEAR THESE CLASSICS? Maybe I am listening to the wrong stations-bring the pirates back PLEASSSSSEEEEE!!!! A true classic.
