The second album by Claw Boys Claw, With Love From The Boys, is not available anywhere. A disgrace!
In 1994 Prince, using his old name, released the album Come. Prince was buried and the general public didn’t understand at all. The story on a forgotten, great album!
The American band Spoon started ay back in 1993, but in Holland they weren’t really noticed until 2014. At last: They Want My Soul is superb!
Which soundtracks have I listened to the most and are among my favorites? From Saturday Night Fever to Twin Peaks: the world of the soundtrack!
