Real Gone Sessions #1: Kurt Baker – Turn It Around

When the Kurt Baker Combo recorded their ‘Let’s Go Wild!’ album in 2018, they found themselves with material that didn’t make the final cut.  One of the unused songs, ‘Turn It Around’ is a brilliant power pop number, pretty much as good as anything the KBC have ever recorded.  It’s so good, it’s actually better than a few of the tracks that ended up on the LP.

As the first presentation in a new column designed to entertain the world whilst under quarantine, Kurt has filmed a new video clip of the (still unreleased) song in a stripped back arrangement.  We may not be able to go outside anymore, but we’ll always have music – and who better to kickstart the new feature than “Mr. Party” himself!

We hope you enjoy this new and exclusive clip.  Don’t forget to check out some of Kurt’s other recordings! You can find reviews of ‘Play It Cool’ and ‘Brand New Beat’ here and here.  You can also read an interview with Kurt from 2017 here.
