T he second of High Life’s bounty to spill over into listener’s laps, again adopting the wise approach of pulling the B side from previous works. (I say “wise” because there was no telling how many of High Life’s tracks had the potential to become singles on their own.) As with the songs of Peter Gabriel’s So, “Freedom Overspill” mixes soul, funk and pop into a tasty treat that suggests a slowed-down version of Stevie Wonder’s “Superstition.” The flip side, “Help Me Angel,” is the same as the version that appeared on Talking Back To The Night. In the UK, “Spanish Dancer” (from Arc) got the nod on the back side. Several versions of the A side (liberty mix, dub mix) exist. I believe the 4:09 version is edited; I'll confirm that later*. (*And without my even noticing it, later became now. Yes, it is an edited version. And now, onward to future laters.)
