Life of Live - Frazier Chorus



Support for yesterday's life of live came form Frazier Chorus a trio who specialised in dreamy pop with whispered vocals. They had already had a minor hit with Dream Kitchen. They released their second lp Ray (the first one was called Sue) at the time when the record company's answer to everything was let's get a remix and preferably a Paul Oakenfield one.



This is one of those times when they were right. I've posted the first 2 singles in remix form. Cloud Eight is the catchier of the two but it is with Nothing, a sugary tune , breezy beat , but despairing lyric that really works



Nothing (has been proved mix) - Frazier Chorus



Cloud Eight (future mix) - Frazier Chorus

  1. I've always wanted to listen to the 3rd album Wide Awake , many , many years ago when there were record shops our local indie one had a couple of copies but they sold out .

    I love 'dream Kitchen' , 'typical' and 'nothing's' a wonderful track .

  2. Hi Jay

    I did once have a copy of the thirs lp but lost it in a hous emove - it was a bit rougher and form what I remember patchier than the other 2 but I can't really remember any of the songs on it
