MR HUDSON & THE LIBRARY – Too Late, Too Late (CD, 12″ & 7″ Singles)

Mercury 1721391 / 1723873 / 1721392: 19th February 2007
1. Too Late, Too Late (Original / Dirtee Stankin Remix / Dirtee Stankin Remix Instrumental)
“Why must I always play the clown, it makes it too easy for them to put you down”
2. Bread + Roses (Original / Live From Let’s Get Lost)
“So what you gonna do with all that cash, it must get boring, being so flash”
3. Woman On The Hill
“There was a woman who lived on the hill, they warned me boy, she’s very ill you know, I went to see the lady on the hill, she wasn’t ill, she was beautiful”

‘Too Late, Too Late’ is another insanely catchy single from Mr Hudson & The Library. Don’t be put off by their image, which might lead you to believe they where some inhuman combination of Sting, No Doubt and Orson. This is a perfect fusion of Reggae, Jazz, Soul and a large injection of Pop. The deep Bass rumbles in the background while Steel-Drums and Piano dance over the top. It’s even better than their last single
‘Bread + Roses’ (Which is included here for your convenience in the original version and a sensational live rendition).

Always the bride’s-maid never-the-bride man Lethal Bizzle and friends contribute a superb cut-up remix of the A-side with extra lines spat over the top. Last but not least is the haunting B-side ‘Woman On The Hill’. It’s a gorgeous mix of chopped up Acoustic Guitars and Mr Hudson’s wistful lyrics.
