Current Vinyl Playlist VOL 7
This is installment # 7 of my new regular entry on this mess of a blog.
I'm catching up. Jumping to the latest finds
1) Hollie Cook - Happy Hour
The 4th release from the ultra smooth and sweet voiced Hollie Cook and her self titled "Tropical pop". Just got this in the mail, and is not even out digitally until tomorrow at the time of writing.
It's kind of like the "lover's rock" type of reggae made famous back in the mid 1970's. Every track is a cocktail on a tropical beach in paradise.
And the cover art is in the style of her first three LPs.
2) The Clash & Ranking Roger - "Rock The Casbah" b/w "Red Angel Dragnet"
The single to promote the most recent remastered reissue of "Combat Rock" features Ranking Roger of English Beat (and soon to be in General Public).
His toasting style completely changes both songs. Loved Rock the Casbah sine I was 13 years old, but RR really gives it a new life. The B-side, "Red angel Dragnet" allows Ranking Roger to really turn this into a dub classic.
It's available on The Clash's UK website.
3) Manfred Hubler & Siegfried Schwab - Vampiros Lesbos: Sexadelic Dance Party
Acid jazz pop from 1969. This is a 2005 reissue of an ultra scarce soundtrack for "Vampiros Lesbos", a late 60's sex-horror take on Bram Stoker's Dracula. That sums up the music....
Here's a track of this music....
I'll be back with more in a week or two!
