1 - UnnamedVolume IV (Bakelite Radio)

Volume IV is the latest and much anticipated third release from Bakelite Radio.

"The tenor sax is king on Volume IV - a pinch of soul, a little rock n roll and a hint of country blues.

The collection of songs started out with the Allen Toussaint's Yes We Can along with songs from Nick and I, 12 months later and we are ready to go with Volume IV.

Since Volume III, Joe Creighton has taken over in the bass department. There had been a shift creeping into the live performances, there's a more soulful sound because of Joe. We have more choices in this direction. Otis Redding, Sam Cook, Curtis Mayfield, Eddie Hitton, Allen Toussaint and Ray Charles were always on the top of my record collection.

Most of these songs are from my youth apart from the ones that Nick and I penned. There are so many great artists still doing big things and so many great songs need another spin, that's how I see Bakelite Radio working some borrowed songs, some new." Joe Camiileri
