Donnie & Joe Emerson – Baby (from the album Dreamin’ wild, Light in the Attic)
*Thank you to my UCC 98.3FM colleague Jim Morrish for pointing me in the direction of this. From the endlessly nurturing source that is the wonderful LITA, another hidden pop gem unearthed from a time when punk and disco were going head to head. I’ve seen the phrase “bedroom pop jam” used in connection with this and it’s a good starting point. Two brothers in rural Oregon, funded by their farming father, producing the sweetest blue-eyed soul. You can see why Ariel Pink would be into it.
