Say what you like about Ride On Time, I concede that it was an overplayed and average ital-house tune but Davoli’s Black Box cannot be overlooked on one track alone. Despite their absolutely criminal use of a model in lieu of Martha Walsh’s larger frame, it is Marsha’s voice that lifts every track Black Box ever made. Martha Walsh is without a doubt, one of my all time favourite vocalists with a voice that could destroy concrete dams with its power. This pounder goes back to the mandatory roots of a cracking Ital-House cut, simple but catchy piano riff, pounding bassdrum and a vocal that can split the crust of the Earth.
Marsha, I salute you, you fucking rock!
