Ska fans can rejoice because after 35 years Rhoda Dakar has finally recorded the songs of “The Bodysnatchers.”
The album began as a crowd funded project through Pledge Music and once the money was raised Dakar put the wheels in motion. After just one rehearsal the ten tracks were cut giving the album an old school feel.
“Rhoda Dakar sings The Bodysnatchers” sounds like an album recorded by friends during a basement house party and that’s a good thing because Dakar has created a collection of tunes that should be, no, needs to be added to anyone’s next party playlist! Longtime fans of The Bodysnatchers will be playing this album nonstop while newcomers will finally realize what their music collection has been missing all these years!
Whether you’re a new devotee or a longtime fanatic the outcome will be the same… push play and dance!
The album includes extensive liner notes, rare photos and lyrics to every song.
