It won't have escaped your attention that UK street soul of the '80s and early '90s has become fashionable again, thanks in no small part to some suitably on-point reissues. This essential reissue isn't of a street soul gem, but rather a 1983 lovers rock 12" that fuses that style's soulful reggae roots with the then emerging UK soul sound. Mystic Harmony was a fairly prolific "lovers" group of the period, though their warm, languid and effortlessly soulful cover of The Jones Girls' classic "Nights Over Egypt" is by far and away their best moment. Flipside "Independent Lady", a more traditional synth-laden slab of Lovers Rock warmth, is also rather good and features a superb vocal by Sandra Edwards.
