mp3 | donnie & joe emerson | baby

it's been a while, but we're back and ready to hit the ground running.  i apologize for the extended absence; computers are nuts.  during our downtime, there have been dozens of top-notch releases, but one would be hard pressed to find a better (re)launch point than this soulful, blue-eyed gem from 1979.  donnie & joe emerson released their dreamin' wild lp over thirty years ago, with "baby" being written by donnie when he was seventeen. when we were seventeen we were totering trash cans and yelling at people downtown. ariel pink's haunted graffiti has also recorded a faithful rendition with guest vocals from dâm-funk which will be included on their recently announced mature themes lp, set for an august 21 release. meanwhile, donnie & joe's dreamin' wild, has been remastered and is being reissued by light in the attic next week. yes!  give the original a download (right click, save link as) here.
