Gigolo A Go Go - Episode 6

The other night, I was sitting outside, drinking Palomas, daydreaming in the darkness.  I imagined that I was on a beach in Guyana, with my funky friends, at one of Joe Strummer's bonfires.  At some point, Joe shouts over to me, "Hey, Mr. Gigolo, play us some lovers rock."

Well, here is the mix.  Lovers Rock, that sweet, romantic reggae style that was born in London in the early 70s.  Combining Philadelphia Soul with a rocksteady beat, it is timeless in its swaying groove and tenderness.

I've also sprinkled in a little ska, dub, and roots reggae to spice things up.

I'd like to think Joe would approve.
