Musical Musings Week 37

A Man Called Adam - Barefoot In The Head

Despite what the name may suggest, house and balearic outfit A Man Called Adam are actually a duo consisting of Sally Rodgers and Steve Jones. They brought out some gorgeous summery songs in the early 90s, inspired by a certain white isle. Barefoot In The Head is a beautiful song where Rodgers declares utopian love over melting keys and shining synths.

Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley - One Loaf Of Bread (Something For You)

Anybody with the name Marley and the most famous heritage in reggae will always have a tough act to follow. However, Damian ‘Jr. Gong’ Marley proved that he could stand on his own two feet with the Welcome To Jamrock LP. The salvation inspiring One Loaf Of Bread, arguably his finest work to date, followed the album and married Marley’s reassuring vocals with Trevor ’Baby G’ James’ tough Gang War riddim track.
