Portishead – Roads (1994)


Beth Gibbons

In fact, Danger Mouse had made waves before the Grey Album, working with Jemini on Ghetto Pop Mix. Included on the mixtape was Danger Mouse’s remix of Nas’s ‘It Ain’t Hard To Tell’ which he’d spliced with Beth Gibbons singing ‘Roads’. (Now that’s what I call a segue.) ‘Roads’ had originally featured on Portishead’s classic debut Dummy. It is/was a contemporary alt-hip-pop masterpiece.

    Stunning! Spent a lot of my life listening to this track when Dummy was released but not enough of my time in recent years. This has rekindled a flame for all things Bristol. Now where’s that Roni Size album gone…

    Wow! Never heard that before. Not very cheerful but very good to listen to. Love her voice.
