About Extra Virgin

Extra Virgin was the first (1996) release for British electronic trio Olive. This defined Olive's style, spawning three singles, "You're Not Alone" (which was rereleased twice), "Outlaw", and "Miracle". The trip-hop influence of Massive Attack and Portishead, while in small quantities, are evident, mixed in with synth-based electronic dance. Synthesizers used on the album were a Roland Juno-60, a E-mu Systems Vintage Keys, and an Akai S3000XL sampler. Mixing was done on a Mackie mixing console. The band created some samples by recording live sounds, edited and subsequently filtered. All songs written by Tim Kellett and Robin Taylor-Firth. The 2003 one-disc re-release included three additional tracks. A 1997 limited edition release included a second CD of remixes. Olive are: Other musicians: Metcalfe had previously played for The Durutti Column alongside Kellett, as had Pereira for Simply Red.
