This was a fantastic find at this Sunday's boot sale - a great set of funky, instrumental cover versions of classic songs we all know and (probably) love. Yes, yes I hear you say, we've heard it all before, and that would be true, but not quite like this.
Wikipedia has this to say about 'em:
I imagine the Tru-Tones set the dancefloors on fire in St. Lucia's hotel nightclubs and cabaret venues.
"The Tru Tones are a Saint Lucian band led by Ronald "Boo" Hinkson. The band formed in the 1960s and had a significant following in the 70s in the United Kingdom. They recorded five albums and several singles, most famously "Hungry Belly', "Burning Eyes" and "Sexy Thing" (remake of the Hot Chocolate song).
Since the Tru Tones break-up, Hinkson has had a successful solo career and toured across the world."
