I have been really digging the Harlem record. It sounds a lot like early Who to me, in a good way. I mean the drums are (early) moonish and the singer is (early) daltry-esque and there's enough guitar buzz that the connection seems obvious to me. But I can't find any reviewers who get this and I don't understand why.
Frankie Rose didn't quite do it for me on first listen, I think I was expecting something a little punkier for some reason. I need to free my mind of expectations and listen to it again.
Also, Augustus Pablo and I have been very good friends this weekend. It's really amazing how fresh that old record still sounds.
