One and only lover - ETHIOPIA 777


Oscar Hughes

You won’t find many records featuring the dreaded synthesiser mentioned on this website, but here’s one. Fortunately the wretched thing is pretty well down in the mix, behind some horns (almost in tune) and a gently murmuring male chorus. On top, though, is Oscar from New York wailing for forgiveness. And he really does sing his lungs out – a real throwback vocal performance this for a 1978 cut. A rare treat and apparently Oscar’s only release.
