Martin Stephenson and The Daintees - Boat to Bolivia 30th Anniversary Edition
This is my description text 1. It can support html.

Here we have a brand new 30th anniversary recording of Boat to Bolivia, made at The Tolbooth, Stirling 2016.

The idea was to celebrate the albums 30th with a fresh live sound, the band has never been hotter and truly creates a great take on this classic record, where the songs are just as timeless as the day of it’s release, bearing in mind, most of the songs would have been written between 1980 & 1982!
The Daintees showed an incredible range and idiosyncrasy for such young recording artists, and some of the guitar solos John Steel created back then are still etched in the ears of the listener since this truly weird album’s release!
It’s wonderful hearing his 2nd takes with a 30 year distance, just outrageously good man!
Here the artist gives you a 30 year gap between original and new, with the original guitarist on both albums Mr John Steel, who left the band after its recording, never to surface till some 15 years later, Martin wrote the song ‘Goodbye John’ for him, which featured on following classic album  ‘Gladsome, Humour and Blue’ for his missing friend
It was Anthony’s brother Gary who joined the band in early 1986 to tour the album and then play on the next three of The Daintees major and awesome releases
Also on this new version we have John Steel’s wife Kate Stephenson on drums, who has been with the band for over ten years now, worked closely with Sam Brown, Herbie Flowers and Midge Ure before teaming up with Martin and the gang, another weird thing is, Martin’s childhood friend and Bassist Christopher Mordey, who only played Bass on Daintees very first single release Roll on Summertime, who also played on Martin’s first 1978 demo of ‘Neon Skies’  recorded at Newcastle’s Spectro Art’s Centre, so Chris is a hardcore Daintee and is arguably, along with Anthony Dunn, the first Bass player of The Daintees, so has a very authentic and valid connection.
