The Vibrations - So Blue

Look Back In Anger: The haunting churn of this rare Doo Wop ballad is something to swoon us through the day. A choir of spirits croon behind the gentle tingle of a piano. Sleepily the drums drift along, as The Vibrations recount a tale of deep wallowing sadness. This sort of melody from the past reminds me of a dream I never had, where a mysterious box, tucked away in the attic, is dusted off to reveal a few faded reels of tape. The moon is low and the night-sky is filled with a shade of inky midnight blue. Late at night the old tape machine whirrs into life, and this ghostly ode to love-loss echoes through the rafters. Can you dig?
