This Stereo digital single, and forthcoming EP title track, pays homage to the iconic Sixties record player and the classic vinyl discs played on it, engendering a lifelong love of composing and listening to music.

The single is also available b/w Tell Me It's You on classic 7" black Vinyl in exclusive, authentic bright 1960s Mono Mixes

The EP release explores personal and cultural artefacts, with influences spanning 25 years of musical history, fashion, photos, discs, gigs, venues and instruments from the early 1960s to the late 1980s.

lyrics

Blue Dansette

Verse 1
In 1968 I came home from summer break
My folks said we've something to show you that's great
While I was gone they cleared the backyard shed
Turned it into a music room instead
I walked into the den, you know I'll never forget
I heard a record playing on a Blue Dansette

Verse 2
In 1965 I'd seen The Beatles live
Couldn't see or hear for all the screaming beehives
Now I had the albums I could play them loud
Singing along I never felt so proud
I knew it was a feeling that I'd never forget
Listening to those LPs on my Blue Dansette

Bridge
And now I had a room to call my own
Where I could simply be
I’d play those songs again & again
I knew that music was the key

Verse 3
In 1969 Sugar Sugar sounded fine
A man on the moon was in the TV Times
Radio was playing Something In The Air
A new decade arrived In The Summertime glare
And when the day was done you know I’ll never forget
Stacking up those singles on my Blue Dansette

Verse Instrumental

Bridge
But all good things must come to an end
Or so it seems to me
We bought a deck from the hi-fi store
The world was turning Japanese

Verse 4
Many years on and the music’s going strong
Just when I thought that the player had gone

Well now it’s reborn so never forget
You can play your vinyl on a new Dansette

Now you can play your vinyl on a new Dansette
Now you can play your vinyl on your Blue Dansette
