Rock Your Baby

EMC-004
Release Notes
  • English liner notes

EMC-004 is a reproduction of one of the first releases on Nutmeg, the Tokyo band Tomatos with their urbane, wistful cover of George McCrae’s early disco classic “Rock Your Baby”, backed with one of the earliest remixes by now-celebrated engineer Izumi Miyazaki. This 1990 recording features Takayoshi Matsunaga, a renowned bassist in the Japanese reggae/club music scene, who was also a member of Mute Beat, on bass. With the lyrics delivered in a mix of English and Japanese, the recording also features some plaintive melodica work from Pianica Maeda. Smooth and sweet, a low-key treat.
