Way down under, about half way 'round the world for many (but not
all) of the readers of RAD, lies a land known as "Double-yu Eye."
In this land it is hard to find anything but deserts on land, and
salt-water croc- and shark-infested waters at sea. But the one jewel
of Western Oz is Perth, a beautiful city of the shores of the Indian
Ocean. From this city comes a jewel in a jewel case, "Sounds of Perth
Volume II." Don't ask about volume I, I don't know. But I presume
that the man to ask about more info on either volume I or II is Richard
Mortimer, (firstname.lastname@example.org) the resident Internet
Guru (who's musical work can be found on Sounds of Perth Volume II). Of
particular musical interest on this CD are the following:
Aurora "Plastic Hammer" - rocking, hard hitting
Richard Mortimer "All's not fair"- Sisters of Mercy meet the
Moody Blues? Well worth the listen.
Loveskin "Shining Star" - Anyone could mistake this for a
Pretenders song. Definitely one of the best songs on the CD.
Moondogs "Rose Garden" - Another shining star from down under.
This respite takes you back to a favorite 70's band, slowly.
Oz Connection "dreamtime" - another exeptional track, this one
by a jazz ensamble, is simply the blusiest jazz I've ever heard.
Musical crossover-city on this track pretty much ensures that
everyone will like it.
