Barney Hurley's AOR Rarities Playlist Volume 4
Each of the three previous volumes of Barney Hurley's AOR Rarities playlists has been a real event and he returns with another dozen of the most sophisticated obscurities from his collection. Barney is best known for his work in Samuel Purdey, a band which was steeped in the smooth traditions of Steely Dan yet was also ahead of its time. They released their debut album during the dark days of Britpop in the mid-1990s but have found a new and hugely appreciative audience in recent years.
