The Associates - Radio 1 Sessions 1981-1983
Another request. I wasn't aware that the Associates Radio 1 Sessions Collections were out of print, but judging by the silly money they're currently going for, it would seem to be the case.
We've got the first four sessions the Associates did for Radio 1 here, two with the classic Mackenzie/Rankin line up (including an early version of Waiting For The Love Boat and a slightly dubby version of Australia), a couple of torch songs that he performed at Ronnie Scott's and something from around the time of Perhaps (the songs here perhaps more lively than the somewhat overcooked versions on Perhaps, includes an entertaining alternate version of Perhaps with Steve Reid on improvised vocals that was never aired for some reason...). Solid gold in every song. Enjoy!
(Part 2 coming soon...)
