TVD's Daily Wax | Danny Wilson "Meet Danny Wilson"

One of my favorite records of all time just so happens to fall under the post '85 release category we're discussing this week--1987, to be exact. Unfairly lumped together with such middling acts as Curiosity Killed The Cat or Matt Bianco, Danny Wilson was light-years beyond their 'peers' in every category. Sounding like Steely Dan (Hi Davy) channeling Bowie, yet retaining a truly unique sense of timelessness (remember that word there...) "Meet..." is an astonishing and thoroughly rewarding debut. And uh, Gary Clark--one of the best vocalists ever?

Danny Wilson - Aberdeen (Mp3)
Danny Wilson - Five Friendly Aliens (Mp3)
Danny Wilson - Girl I Used To Know (Mp3)
Danny Wilson - Mary's Prayer (Mp3)
Danny Wilson - You Remain An Angel (Mp3)

I'd like to throw a little love back to Turntabling who tossed some affection our way with this post yesterday. Fans of this blog will certainly find plenty to enjoy over at Joe's place. Cheers!

Mary's Prayer is such a beautiful song; I get nostalgic just thinking about it.
