4 : 01 Let's Go (album version)
From US PRESS KIT --Arthur baker and New Order's paths crossed when they both found themselves contributing material for the soundtrack to the film SALVATION. "They had an instrumental called "Let's Go" that really knocked me out," Baker recounts, "and I suggested we go in and add a vocal track. Bernard and I wrote the lyrics and at the time we were both going through relationship break-ups, which I guess accounts for the bitter edge to the words. Bernard sang the song, but nothing really came of it."
Nothing, that is, until the summer of 1994, when work on (THE BEST OF) got underway. Arthur Baker: "I heard they were doing a compilation and I suggested they reconsider "Let's Go", always one of my favorite New Order cuts.
The original vocal track needed some work, so Bernard and I rewrote a verse as well as putting in a new guitar part and adding some sampling and reprogramming.-----
