John Zorn’s exotica/ lounge music project. This is definitely not Naked City. This album is a compilation of songs by The Dreamers, specially remastered for this vinyl release. Nice surfy guitar tones from Ribot. The picture disc was surprisingly noise free, very few clicks, but perhaps a higher noise floor, which you’d never notice, except between tracks.
