Echo And The Bunnymen - Rescue

Label: Korova
Format: CDS
Excellent eissue of Echo and the Bunnymen's 1980 classic second single, 'Rescue Me'


This is a reissue of the band's second single and first for Warners' offshoot Korova, and appears in the same picture sleeve and on the same label. 'Rescue' and its B side were recorded in January 1980. 'Rescue' is one of the stand out tracks from Echo and the Bunnymen's debut album, 'Crocodiles', which is still one of my top three albums of all time, bar none. It starts with a killer riff from Will Sergeant and ends with Ian McCulloch asking "Is this the blues I'm singing?" It has been issued amongst strong rumours that the band who are currently without a deal will sign again to to Korova. It is backed by a track called 'Simple Stuff' which is raw and simple and straight to the point.

1 Rescue
2 Simple Stuff
