Chinatown (Northern Rascal's Tale From The East 2015) - Toto

To celebrate the release this week of the brand new Toto album X1V - arguably their best since The Seventh One in 1988 - here's an exclusive edit of the smoothest track on the record by AOR Disco regular Northern Rascal. 

'Chinatown' started life as a demo recorded during the sessions for the band's debut record in 1978, a time when the members of Toto were best known as Boz Scagg's backing band. It also features original bassist David Hungate, who helps to give this track the groove which was such a distinctive feature of the band's early days. 

On vocals we have Toto legends Joseph Williams, Steve Lukather and David Paisch, and it's no wonder that we felt the original version was just too short. We wanted more and Northern Rascal kindly obliged with this six and a half minute extended edit.
