Green Gartside and B.E.F.

Andrew Smith, Melody Maker, 5 October 1991

BEF (THE PART-TIME preoccupation of former Heaven 17 bods second Martyn Ware and Ian Craig Marsh) have just released a Music Of Quality and Distinction LP, and the most convincing justification for its existence is Scritti Politti singer Green Gartside's remarkable version of the old Stevie Wonder torch song, 'I Don't Know Why I Love You'. conveniently, it's released as a single this week.
