The fantastic "Balearic Sound of..." series of 12” compilations from Sunkissed Records is back! Linda Di Franco, one of the undisputed queens of the laidback Mediterranean scene in the early 80s, is featured this time around. The hard to find Sensurround Mix of her Balearic classic, "TV Scene," is a perfect introduction to Linda's cool sexy sound and makes it easy to understand why the original 12" is so in demand. It oozes sultry summery sensuality, topped with some seriously soulful sax. Her gloriously dreamy take on Dusty Springfield's "Look Of Love" follows. On the flip we get the extended 12" mix of "My Boss," highly sought after since being one of the standouts on DJ Harvey's cult Sarcastic mix. And lastly, under-rated album track "Stay," a balmy funk groover given extra sizzle from Ms Di Franco's trademark X-rated breathy vocal performance. A wonderful collection of Balearic moments not to be missed.
