Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night

How difficult was it, to care for an album released by a 60s man in his late 50s? Well, frankly, my dear... Donovan’s Beat Café is a special album. Sweaty, sexual, stylish. It’s the sound of gritty, greedy warmth of a late summer evening, when you’ve smoked too much and your brain is whizzing with tiredness and inspiration. 

Dylan Thomas’ classic poem is perfect in this setting. Bass lines that merge with words and then leave you speechless.
