The Arthur Baker fuelled Rocker’s Revenge made a habit out of creating electro tinged cover versions. Their massive hit was the seminal “Walking On Sunshine” and this is up there with it with a long version of Jimmy Cliff’s classic. Released in 1983 it features the soulful Donnie Calvin on vocals, he later featured in another Baker project, Wally Jump Junior & The Criminal Element. Quite restrained production with some excellent piano, those electronic drums and an amazing closing section, with a political message too! “Sunshine…” does have a cheesy rap over the top of “Walking On sunshine” naming all the US clubs at the time but then name checking sunny countries including Denmark ????!!!
