Bakelite Radio

“Bakelite Radio represents the kind of music I was listening to as a young boy digging the wealth and richness of the blues. Several of these songs were just lying about looking for a little sunlight. The idea was not to dissect every little move, just keep the spirit intact and be sympathetic to the double bass. Ed, Claude, Nicky, Simon and I would instinctively pick up what was needed. We recorded 20 tracks for the Bakelite sessions in 6 x 4hr blocks at Woodstock Studios, Melbourne between Nov and Dec 2002.” – Joe Camilleri
