“The Streets of London” was recorded by Ralph McTell in 1974. Almost 40 years later, London’s Soothsayers are breathing new life into the same song for a compilation record entitled London’s Calling. Soothsayers use smooth, laid-back three-part harmonies to transform this soulful track into a mellow afrobeat, reggae masterpiece.
The song, along with two dub versions, will be released on October 1 by Red Earth Records – only you lucky Earmilkers get this track early. If you’re feeling this then stay tuned for Soothsayers’s upcoming album Human Nature.
