Dominique – This Is Her Life (12″)

Debut release from American actress Dominique Davalos and being in the bands  Dominatrix and The Delphines, and for her roles in / music for John Barry – Howard The Duck (Music From The Motion Picture Soundtrack) (1986 film) and Various – Salvation! (Original Soundtrack) (1987 film / 1988 soundtrack)

A bit like The Bangles, this was released in December ’87. Gentle jangle and quite catchy there is even an orchestra in there. Produced by Ivan Ivan with Arthur Baker on mixing (but you would not know it) It came with the sleeve note “From the original soundtrack by Beth B ‘Salvation’.” It was also released on the tiny Les Disques Du Crépuscule  label.

The Version repeats a guitar riff in a slight dub version with larger drums and a bit clumsy IMHO.

“Play The Beat” is pure New Wave / Post Punk, plenty of chugging guitar and driving bass and drums. Her writing partnership with Nicki Camp a NYC punk guitarist is clearly evident”+Vinyl+-+1987.rar/file
