NATHAN PERSAD - SINCE 1978
A clever collection of 11 songs authentically & lovingly produced using vintage equipment, written, arranged & performed by Nathan, with executive producer James Tobin, that pay tribute to the great age of popular music from 1955 to 1968.
This is fun, fresh, exciting, a joy! It has humour, it has passion, it rocks like a mo-fo, it pleads for love, it says goodbye, it says hello, it has 11 pop vignettes packed with melody - you remember melody don't you?!? - that deserve & demand your attention!
Your life will be richer for owning this album!

Well done. You're reading this album blurb. In the interest of full disclosure, which apparently is a Confusing Legal Term that also applies to liner notes, I must tell you that I have a vested financial interest in the success of this album. The fact is, Streatham’s Nathan Persad owes me twenty quid and according to him he won't be able to pay me back until he sells five million albums.
But I know what you're thinking. You're thinking "Hmm, this album looks pretty cool, but who is this Nathan Persad chap?
Nathan's music is like Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons meet Roy Wood at a party held by Freddie and the Dreamers in a house they’re looking after for Roy Orbison, while talking to the Searchers and playing poker with The Hollies and Frank Zappa. You'll be sat there comfortably listening to what you're sure is Neil Sedaka singing ELO when all of a sudden your ears get filled with the hard-rocking sounds of The Move performing a duet with Jan & Dean. Little Richard passes on a cocktail served by George Harrison, which he then offers to Buddy Holly, upsetting Fats Domino in the process, while the second-album line-up of Love play charades with Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky Mick and Tich. Prince and The Dave Clark 5 were invited to this party but had already promised Rolf Harris they’d go to his down the street. Graham Bond and The Isley Brothers do not recall attending, even though Peter Straker’s private home movies prove not only that they did, but also that the classic line-up of Marmalade provided the entertainment.
It's a roller-coaster ride of an album, not in a “reunited-with-breakfast” sort of way, but in a “WOOOOHOOOO!!” sort of way. Go on, buy it, give it a whirl, get yourself lost in this musical extravaganza. You might just like it. I might just get my twenty quid back. We can all but live in hope.
