Swaying through the reeds on a hot Summer day. Paddling though the mangroves, today you have your accompaniment on Gulls Window Circus. An all-vinyl tropical, Brazilian, Jamaican show that made the heat outside fun and made me wonder why I seldom tread in these genre waters. Even includes a song from a play in Philadelphia (Magic Of Love). The Black Harmony track has been slipping in and out of my head all week, and the As Damas Do Rap track must be heard.

The seventh week of recorded-from-home shows to accommodate the closure of WZBC due to COVID-19. Both hours are all-vinyl 7″s in the soul/funk category, many are international, and some have gospel roots. This is not a rock show, but it is surely a Gulls Window Circus show all the way.
