Originally released in 1983 - Repress in back to back hits-series

While Europe had "Sunshine Reggae" as an A-side and "White Horse" as a B-side to what was originally a double A-side single 7" release, the US simply reversed it all. Sire Recs and Seymour Stein had signed Laid Back up on the reputation of "Sunshine Reggae" but soon found out that "White Horse" was hitting clubs.

Next up was a 12", including a remix by Shep Pettibone, that helped launch the then-nascent 12" DJ / Dance vinyl format.

By now, "White Horse" rivals the James Brown track "Funky Drummer" in terms of sample uses.


Laid Back - White Horse

Buildings falling apart behind him means Destruction in his path. He walks and makes a deal with a guy.
The female is metaphorically the "White Horse"..

White Horse is Heroin, White Pony is cocaine.

Laid Back are from Denmark

This video plays out so much like the movie "The French Connection"
