Raw Deal Used to Be
- Words: Tomas
- Label: Straight Ahead
Soaring, soulful vocals and three-part harmonies cascade through Jim "Raw Deal" Robbins's first single from his forthcoming Snakes And Ladders album. Zap Mama's Tanya "Nia" Saw sweetly complements Robbins's shuffle-boogie beat that draws on electro-disco instrumentation, cowbells, jazzy guitars and all. Superb.
