Album Review

A Special Way To Celebrate a Wonderful Life at Christmas.

The Raving Beauties - Raving For Bap (Kennedy)

Phew.....I don't really know where to begin here; where does the time go? It's now over a year since Belfast Boy Bap Kennedy died and his passing still feels as raw to me as it must his family.

Here, Bap's friends, family and especially The Dreaming Spires have combined to record 5 of his finest songs that span his career way back to the Energy Orchard days with all proceeds (coupled with the £2,000 his lovely sister Marian has raised by a 12 month long sponsored abstinence from the demon alcohol!) going to the Marie Curie (NI) who looked after 'yer man' in those horrible last few months.

Normally at this stage I should actually review all 5 songs on this delightful record; but apart from telling you they are all delightful and come oozing with love for Bap; what's the point? You are going to buy this anyways; aren't you?

 

1) Walk In Love

2) Moriarty's Blues

3) The Way I Love Her

4) Hard Street

5) Lonesome Lullaby

 

The release comes via a digital download or a collectors edition 10" vinyl

 

10" VINYL (which I DO NOT WANT TO SEE ON E-BAY!).
