Last week I posted a low quality vinyl rip of the Sub Sub track Senna from the Angel 12″ vinyl. I asked if anyone had a better quality version, and you came out trumps..

Ally wrote letting me know that Senna was also featured on the German CD single release. This I did not know of! Hope to track down a copy of this someday soon (if anyone has a copy they would be willing to sell email me). So..

With many many thanks to Ally, I can offer up Senna taken from the CD single..

Lost Sub Sub Gem: Senna

Ever since starting this blog back in Febuary, the most requests I get is for music from doves previous incarnation Sub Sub. Up for download today is a track long forgotten about…

I have offered up the Coast EP previously, just do a search to find that in the archives. Related to Coast is a track titled Senna which was featured on the Angel 12″ double pack in 1994. Senna is an early alternate version of Coast, which was retitled as a tribute to Ayrton Senna.

Please note the quality of this rip is really bad! But as this track has been requested so often, I will offer up this poor quality mp3, straight from my own vinyl so you can at least get a sample of this track. If anyone wants to offer up a better quality mp3, I’d love to hear from you!

From Norman Records:

DOVES Winter Hill 2009 UK limited edition 2-track 7″ vinyl single – Known locally, ‘Winter Hill’ is a beauty spot between Chorley and Bolton in the West Pennine Moors. It’s famed for its UFO sightings, mining activity, aeroplane disasters and murders but to Doves it clearly means something altogether more magical and ethereal. Already a fan’s favourite, ‘Winter Hill’ ushers the listener in via a pop Reich repetition, all looped effects and soaring synths before morphing into what canonly be described as a love song. Furthermore, on the b-side, there’s a totally different change of pace with the Dylanesque ‘Brazil’, a new track that adds yet another dimension to Doves repertoire!.

Winter Hill is released July 20th. It is expected the download single will feature a host of Jetstream remixes.

Winter Hill Single Update

clickmusic.com states that the Winter Hill 7″ vinyl will feature the b-side Brazil. There is a CDR promo doing the rounds, which features an image of a snowy railway track. Tracks on the promo are:
