Nick at Ghost Capital must have read my mind as he just shared Wendell Stuart & The Downbeaters, a Bahamian soul LP I’ve been searching for the past two months having caught a track on the recent Trans Air Records West Indies Funk compilation. Below is their obligatory, yet excellent, take on the Beatles, plus a cover of the Burt Bacharach penned “Always Something There to Remind Me,” (in)famously covered in the 80s by Naked Eyes.
