Kitty, Daisy & Lewis - Smoking In Heaven (Part 2) - #22

Kitty, Daisy & Lewis - Smoking In Heaven (Part 2)

The vinyl has finally arrived here at these doorsteps. The first thing you realise, all of the songs have been written by the Durhams/Weiss'. Not a single cover version in sight. The debut had only two originals. The music is less Rock'n'Roll by a degree, but the songwriting is excellent and it still sounds like a modern 50's platter. Rock'n'Roll mixes with Swing and Boogie Woogie and what else. One of the ladies still sings like she's having an enormous cold. It does sound great, no question.

This is really a double vinyl release and comes with a download code for the whole album. In fact, right now I'm listening to this version (a CD-R that is). There's a new video out there, this one for "Messing With My Life", that just shows how eclectic of an album this is. The album could have done with better graphics though, this is a bit of a letdown compared to the "classic" image on their debut. Nevertheless, the release is waiting for you to be brought to a good home. A thoroughingly enjoyable release! Go out and buy it!
