Recorded right at the end of the ’40s, ‘Carnival Day’, Bartholomew’s mardi gras anthem, is the kind of record which encapsulates how unique the City’s sound and musical heritage is, and how ahead of the curve its musicians were. A riotous gumbo stew of heavily syncopated Caribbean rhythms and laid back Southern swagger, it’s one of Dave’s very best! ‘Cat Music’, recorded a few years on, is just as it says, cool, jiving sounds for hep cats - as Dave sings, ’We don’t dig a Square!’
