I love this song. However, let’s start with the words wistful and breezy. But then let us not forget the contrasted sense of melancholy, plus the sting in the tail, which accompanies the heart-tearing melody. Ready To Die is a beautiful composition by anyone’s standard and if there is more in line like this then who knows where Charlie Bel could end up. Mixed by the label’s Paul Murphy who captures the sorts of feelings which tune perfectly into lost weekends, alongside a sense of longing which may well yet be fully satisfied.
