The Q-dee Rock and Soul series returns with veteran rockabilly surf rockers Los Straightjackets in a one-time collaboration with Sarah Borges (of Sarah Borges and the Broken Singles).
The A-side is a reworking of Rolling Stones' "Let's Spend the Night Together". Borges' vocal stylings replace the Stones' bad boy "I dare you" version with a playful yet earnest rethinking of the lyric. ("no, really¦ Let's spend the night together¦")
The B side is a cover of LSJ Guitarist Greg Townson's group The Hi-Risers' "Wild Romance".
The Q-dee Rock and Soul 7" Series recalls the era when record labels were synonymous with the studios they were built around. Those recordings were made quickly by bands that made their livings playing, and the result was a captured performance rather than a created one. Those record labels had a sound, and people would discover new artists through following the labels they liked. All the QDee Series recordings were recorded at Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA.
