Ex-Small Face Steve Marriott goes all languid on this saxy reggaefied 1980 number, the years of excess evident in his raspy vocals. Starting off with a nod to Cream’s ‘Badge’ it lollops on in a funky mantra.
N.B.: Songs that gather cyber-dust within the bowels of the tech-archive-chasm. Finally getting an airing to rapturous applause.
Gaelic legend Dolan (and prolific partners in rhyme Roberto Danova and Joe Yellowstone) goes all Chinn-Chap meets 10CC on this canzone inspiring Feargal Sharkey to pick up the mic and warble. In 1978 Dolan was the first Irishman to tour Russia and his hip bone is the only body-part to date to be sold on Ebay. Rock and roll to the last, Joe.
