Best of 2018, Late Addition: Chris Price
Maybe some of you will recall my raves for "Stop Talking," the amazing 2017 release from Chris Price. Or maybe, some of you might recall my most recent mention of Chris Price, as the producer of the latest Jeffrey Gaines LP, "Alright," which made this past year's Best Of list. Well, this Chris Price put out a record last year, "Dalmatian." It was a quick follow up to "Stop Talking," with more tracks from the sessions. My initial pass through "Dalmatian" was pleasant enough, but unlike "Stop Talking," I didn't feel a need to rush back for a second or third spin.
Chris announced on Facebook that he was pressing a very limited run of "Dalmatian" on vinyl, and I wanted in. I wanted to show support, and I loved "Stop Talking so much, I expected "Dalmatian" to grow on me. Well kids, it did. The vinyl arrived last week and like "Stop Talking," it has remained on my turntable, getting better and better with each spin.
Leftovers? Remainders? Outtakes? We should all have such leftovers!
Here's a sample, three of my favorites, including the ridiculously infectious "Discount Love" and one of the most beautiful songs in recent memory, "I'll Follow Her Anywhere."
Dig in, and if you're a "vinyl douchebag" like I am...yes, someone did indeed refer to me that way---hurry on up and get your copy of "Dalmatian" right here while supplies last.
