Making Provision: Green speaks

Barney Hoskyns, Virgin Records press release, 1988

THREE YEARS of silence are finally broken this week as Scritti Politti release the first single off a new album. Featuring the inimitable trumpet of Miles Davis (repaying the group for his cover of 'Perfect Way'), 'Oh Patti' is a gorgeous, silkspun ballad which instantly puts these masters of techno-soul heaven back in the forefront of contemporary pop.
