For my 49th post we have a very special treat,
A Vinyl rip of an album I haven't seen anywhere on the net
Chris Bailey's 1st solo album.
Not to be confused with the Australian release of the
Saints "Out of the Jungle" Lp with was also called Casablanca.
This is a very rare record released in 1983 by the New Rose
label. Just Chris and his guitar, sometimes electric, sometimes
acoustic, its a delightful low budget record that exposes Bailey's
blues roots. Containing the first recordings of some later
released songs and some songs that were never recorded
again, of particular interest is the song
"Wait until Tomorrow"which is the first recording
of the song that would become "Ghost Ships"
The fantastic blues of "Insurance on me",
"Its Only Time"and "Junko Partner"
The wonderful love ballad that is "Look At me",
The haunting ballad "Why does it Make Me Feel This Way",
which is the first recording of the song "Photograph",
which was later, after the Saints released it,
covered by Mick Harvey.
Including the earliest recordings of the songs
"Rescue", "Curtains" and "Follow the Leader"
all later released on the Saints "Out of The Jungle"
this is well worth hearing and as a follow up from
the last post, a great companion.
