BOBBY BIRDMAN - “Don’t Walk Away”/”Dub Walk”
out about this came as a curiosity so I decided to check it out. The A side of Bobby Birdman’s single is a concise snap
of catchy, melodic midtempo rock with a definite mid 60s flavor and lots of hooks, twangalicious guitar licks and the like.
The flip side is a dub version of the track remixed and embellished by Selector Dub Narcotic that strips and remodels
the track into a part dub, echo-ey universe with added melodica in the mix. It’s a snappy, tight single that lures the
listener in and keeps things moving forward without a ton of frills. If you dig early to mid 60s flavored pop and rock as
well as something a little more experimental then you’ll likely enjoy this single. (BOONE)
