• dana gillespie London Social Degree (CD, £12.95)

    label: rev-ola

    An all but ubiquitous figure in the colourful and crazy backstory of the nonstop London folk/psych/glam/ theatrical demi-mondes, Dana Gillespie is forever both a challenging artiste and a legendary beauty. • Her two 1968-69 Decca/London Records albums, Foolish Seasons and Box of Surprises, are classics of their kind, wherein she totally masters and slightly twists the ‘swinging’ pop-cultural mix around her, and looks forward to her forays into theatre/glam/post rock, spiritual music, and her beloved blues… like the soundtrack to a hell of a movie which *should* have been made… had there only been talent and courage enough to make it! From Northern Soul/Freakbeat-like dancers, to swinging London anthems, to quirky, oddly theatrical story songs, to folk blues, perhaps this collection is all the movie we need! • Both her marvellous 68-69 Decca/ London LPs on one CD! • Wonderfully remastered and packaged in best Rev-Ola style! • TRACKLIST 1.
