Three For Dreaming

Our pal Singing Bear, over at Grown Up Backwards, has been discussing dreams just lately (see here). Inspired by these excellent posts and the fascinating follow-up comments from his readers, here are three tunes with a dream theme.

Stunning selection. Micah P Hinson is on my 'Most Wanted' list. Quite beautiful. What on Earth is the thing at the top? Great strings - kind of Blaxploitation meet the Far East. Japsploitation? A new genre! It's great, whatever it is.
As for R. Webb and Liz, never heard this before but it's groovy and anyone who can record under such a name is fine in my book! Egoless.

The first tune is by Quantic & his Combo Barbaro. Quantic is Will Holland, who has produced a lot of music under various permutations of his name, ranging from fairly straight soul through to Cumbian and Latin stuff, most of which is well worth checking out.
Mrs S & I were very keen on 'Micah P. Hinson and the Gospel of Progress', his first LP, released in 2004, on which his backing band were The Earlies. Since then I've dipped in and out of his stuff, but this new album, 'Micah P.Hinson and the Nothing', is excellent.
I got the R. Webb and Liz tune on a legally dubious Black Ark compilation a few years ago. I've never been able to 100% confirm that it actually was recorded there though and I'm pretty certain that it isn't Scratch at the controls. Top tune though!
