Intoxica: Strange & Sleazy Instrumental / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
This collection features instrumentals from the young bands from the California beach communities and as far east as Las Vegas; cabaret acts from the lounges of Lake Tahoe and Palm Springs; mixed in with some great R&B names who used Downey's studio and cut some fine instrumental of their own. The theme that links them is a quirky sense of drama and fun, a certain sleaziness, a movie theme creativity, and all recorded in an experimental fashion the equal of Joe Meek, who was working contemporaneously in London. Ace. 2006.
