Glastonbury Music Festival 2005

PLAY LOUD – The Orb and the Kakatsitsi Master Drummers from Ghana – beautiful combination of all that is organic and all that is electronic I just love the way it starts just all loose and no-one quite knows whats going on and then all of a sudden the rhythm just flows….and was that a Pat Metheny sample? – Claude

We like The Sundowners

The other Sundowners…

Not to be confused with the legendary original sunshine pop The Sundowners and their track Always You composed by pop genius Roger Nichols the timeless, idealistic lyrics were written by Tony Asher (who wrote most of the lyrics with Brian Wilson on Pet Sounds) not by his regular partner Paul Williams. Sunshine pop hardly gets any sunnier than on this track: great production, strings galore …wow

The much more orchestrated album version


UPDATE 2018 – discovered the Roger Nichols demo – it can be found as a bonus on the Full Circle LP – 2008 – sublime
