Unreleased Human League song - You're My Baby

DRUMSET MYSTERY
"Onstage there was no drumset at all , but you can perfectly hear it!!!"

Wind the clock back to 1982.
The Human League are on top of the world, basking in the success of their seminal album "Dare" which they perform live across the world. People bought cassettes, vinyl records and listened to the radio. Mp3, CD and internet were in the distant future.
As The Human League performed "Don't You Wan't Me" to the enthralled masses, they would sometimes start their live performance with a song called "You're My Baby".
Mystery has shrouded this track for decades. Information was non existent. There were rumours that the track was originally performed by the Motown girl-group "The Shirelles".
The only place you could hear "Youre My Baby", apart from being at a concert, was on vinyl bootlegs. The most notable bootlegs being "Drumset Mystery" and "Boiling Point".


"Drumset Mystery" - The Human League (Bootleg)

Fast forward to 2013.
Ian Burden (bass guitarist for the The Human League, co-writer of Love Action/The Sound Of The Crowd etc) is now friends with John von Ahlen (Parralox/The Tenth Stage/The Sound Of The Crowd) and has contributed bass guitar to each of these projects.

It all began with a conversation between John and Ian Burden about "You're My Baby", in which Ian spoke about touring with the band in the 80's and the origin of the song. It's revealed that the song is written by one Mr I. Elliot, a relative of one of the members of the Comsat Angels. Connections are made and Mr Elliot is contacted and gives his blessings for the track to be recorded.

Parralox release their 5th album "Recovery" which is all cover versions, and one of the tracks recorded in the studio sessions was "You're My Baby". Ian Burden enters the studio and performs bass guitar, in addition to some keyboard parts for the new Parralox recording of "You're My Baby" and the rest is history.
Special thanks to Ian Burden and Mr I. Elliot.

"You're My Baby" appears on the new Parralox EP "Eye In The Sky" out on 11-12-13
It will also be available on a Limited Edition CD from conzoom Records in December 2013.
