GARLAND JEFFREYS (124)

Wild in the Streets (Best Of 1977-1983) (RVCD-124)

Long regarded as one of popular music’s most enigmatic and gifted performers, GARLAND JEFFREYS has been touching devotees and new converts alike with his music for more than 30 years. An intelligent and inspirational singer/songwriter with an expressive, lived-in voice, his highly regarded albums between 1977 and 1983 boasted streetwise, urban-romantic lyrics set to dexterous, tough-edged rock-reggae and soul.

Commencing with eight tracks from the legendary Ghost Writer (including the cult hit ‘Wild in the Streets’), Raven has culled the essence of the years 1977 to 1983 for this first thorough Garland Jeffreys CD compilation. This consummate, 20-track, 75-minute anthology also contains a track from the rare 1980 EP ‘Escapades’ and color booklet featuring detailed liner notes. Features musical contributions from the Brecker Brothers, Dr John, Steve Gadd, David Sanborn, David Spinozza, Phoebe Snow and members of the E. Street Band, the Rumour and the Blues Brothers.
