Skye - Aint No Need (Original Unedited Version)

Thank you Jimmy Briggs for penning such wonderful lyrics, and thank you Gordon Dowitty and Paul Harvey for producing these few minutes of musical bliss. Thank you Kevin Beamish for the mix down, who btw also worked on Miracles "Love Machine", Lenny Williams "Choosing You" as well as works by Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5, The Originals, The Might Clouds of Joy and many more.

Outside of those names on the label, Skye has always been a bit of a mystery to me, which for the record, should not be confused with Randy Muller's popular group Skyy. This Skye is a pretty much unknown group from the West Coast, who are basically a mystery to most of us.

By default, most of you only get to hear the edited 12" "Dance" version, which is basically a loop of the last moments of this original version of the tune, which has been bootlegged and edited many times over the years. As great as that mix is, there is an amazing song that many never get the chance to hear. Well here is this beautiful song in it's original form for you all to enjoy. This is some seriously heavy stuff, so be sure to really listen to those lyrics. I'm sure we can all think of a time in our life where these lyrics have some real world application. I know I can.
