"In the summer, the scene would move en masse to Ostend, Belgium's equivalent to Blackpool. DJ Freddy Cousaert played at the Groove, a late night downstairs bar frequented by US marines, tourists and prostitutes – it was Cousaert who later looked after Marvin Gaye during his 80s sejourn in Ostend. The music he played at the Groove included ska, Latin jazz and even Broadway songs such as Stranger in Paradise, or Whatever Lola Wants from Damn Yankees...."

  1. Thank you for that quick response.

    Unfortunately, this was not the album I was looking for. It's an easy mistake, the RLT's SECOND christmas album has ALMOST EXACTLY the same title as their first, it's just called "MORE Sounds of Christmas".

    Anyway, I'm sure many other followers of your blog will enjoy this classic christmas album. Their second album is much more rare than the first so if you ever happen across it ...

    Thank you again. :-)
