Style: Disco, Hi NRG
B1 Voodoo man
Roni started out as a Coconut in Kid Creole and the Coconuts in the early 80's. She soon opted for a solo career and was picked up by producer Bobby Orlando and the Vanguard label. They released this record in 1982 and it was a hit at the discoteques.
The reason to pick up this record is the last song Spys. (The best part of) breakin' up (cover verion of a Ronettes song) and Voodooman is more disco and lacks the cool electro sound that producer Orlando is reknown for.
But the song Spys got it all with a really cool electronic base and drums. Then add some laidback vocals from Roni and a twanging guitar and you got something really interesting.
I picked up my copy at a record fair in Göteborg and payed 4,45 €.
