Rainy Day - same (1984) - David Roback R.I.P.!

This Rough Trade release is definitely one of my favourite records from the 80s:

"Rainy Day", featuring Kendra Smith, Susanna Hoffs, David Roback, Dennis Duck and Karl Precoda, was a tribute to Alex Chilton, the Velvet Underground, Neil Young, and other songwriters who influenced many of the so-called "Paisley Revival" bands from the West Coast in the early '80s.

Rainy Day was a one-time collaboration of members of the Bangles, Dream Syndicate, Rain Parade, the Three O'Clock and Opal.

The Bangles' Susanna Hoffs turns in her most stunning vocal performances ever on Bob Dylan's "I'll Keep It with Mine" and The Velvets' "I'll Be Your Mirror," while Opal's Kendra Smith is haunting on Chilton's "Holocaust" and Young's "Flying on the Ground Is Wrong." Throughout this project, the mood is often somber, well-suited to a rainy day. Most of the selections are sparsely arranged acoustic settings, making this an album of sublime beauty.


Tracklist:
01. I´ll Keep It With Mine
02. John Riley
03. Flying On The Ground Is Wrong
04. Sloop John B.
05. Soon Be Home
06. Holocaust
07. On The Way Home
08. I´ll Be Your Mirror
09. Rainy Day, Dream Away
