Searching for the Young Soul Rebels (National Album Day 2020)

Dexys Midnight Runners

Cat No: 190295195311

One of all time great albums. ”Searching For The Young Soul Rebels’ captures the original eight-piece group infusing passionate self-belief into songs based on 60s mentors Geno Washington and Jimmy James. Rowland’s expressive voice is perfectly matched by pumping horns and punchy rhythms, but the intensity of their performance ensures the set never falls into pastiche. Each song bears the stamp of a manifesto, one that was largely Rowland’s, a myopic vision that brought this line-up to an acrimonious, premature end. His commitment, however, ensured the lasting qualities of this album.
