Format: LP Format Notes: 2019 re-issue, 180g vinyl EAN: 4251648412519 Track List: A1 : Oh, Love A2 : Rollalong Songs A3 : Feel My Love B1 : Party On The Corner B2 : You Can Do It Release Notes: If ever an album could transport you to the hazy sunshine and imagined halcyon paradise of Southern California in the mid-1980s, could capture the early evening warmth of hanging at an inclusive boogie jam as it approaches “magic hour” in Santa Ana or Anaheim, then it’s Vaughan Mason and Butch Dayo’s Feel My Love.

A rollerskating jam named “Rollalong Songs” is an ultra-swish piece of dance floor dynamite. Its slick drums, staccato piano and neck snapping claps underscore Dayo’s buoyant vocals. It’s essentially “Bounce, Rock, Skate, Roll Part II”. The flip begins with “Party On The Corner”. Smoother than silk vocals, day-glo synths, a bubbling bassline and
