Just A Trick Of The Light

Orange Juice have such an embarrassment of riches in their back catalogue, all skewiff and untutored and out of kilter. It’s their rough edges that make them so loveable I think. From their early days, this is the magnificent, frenetic Felicity (written by Malcolm Ross). This version was from a flexi disc given away free with the first 1000 copies of Falling And Laughing, recorded live in Edinburgh in 1979.

Felicity (Flexi Version)

From the later days, the brilliant What Presence?!, shown here live on the Whistle Test in ’84 with a squealing guitar solo (along with Out For The Count).
