Mike says: “Ned Doheny is one of my favorite forgotten artists of the mid-’70s. ‘Get It Up for Love’ is probably his best known tune since it was later covered by Táta Vega and charted as a dance single. But nothing compares to subtle psychedelia of Ned’s sun-drenched original recording allowing a mix of synths and scratchy acoustic guitar strums to lull us into a song as relaxing as a Southern California sunset. It’s also the first track off Ned’s best known, and arguably best sounding, album — though 1979′s Prone is also worth a listen.”
Ned says: “There were a few songs I wanted to choose for our first SNMF but it’s hard to pick against members of the Wu Tang Clan. The Man With The Iron Fists soundtrack was recently released and I just can’t stop listening to it. Even if you’re not a fan of rap or hip-hop, how can you not appreciate the funky verses? Whether you’re taking on a blind date, a bar hop, or a temple full of Kung-Fu masters, ’Rivers of Blood ‘is what’s right for you tonight.”
