Rhoda Dakar – Sings The Bodysnatchers (45 Year Edition)


SKU: N/A Categories: ,



Rhoda Dakar Sings The Bodysnatchers was the original crowdfunded album released in 2014 which Cherry Red soon picked up in 2017 and released digitally and on CD. Rhoda did a separate deal at the time to produce a very limited run of 40th anniversary edition vinyl in Germany and for touring which was mastered at Abbey Road. Since then there has been no re-presses until now where Rhoda has remastered the whole album including 3 extra unreleased tracks that Sunday Best will be releasing on vinyl and digitally in September. The packaging has been completely redesigned including new album artwork, sleeve notes and vinyl colours.

Sunday Best Recordings is delighted to announce the 45 Year Edition of ’Rhoda Dakar sings The Bodysnatchers’, set for release on 27th September.

It has been 45 years since the world was first introduced to all-female 2Tone trailblazers The Bodysnatchers. Despite only releasing two official 7″ singles, their influence on UK culture and music continues to inspire to this day.

To celebrate 45 years of The Bodysnatchers, founding member Rhoda Dakar has revisited some of their glorious tracks and recorded them with a band including Specials mates Horace Panter and Lynval Golding, festival favourites Intensified, plus members of Pama International and the Sidewalk Doctors.

This 45 year edition also arrives with three extra tracks, including a re-record of ‘Let’s Do Rocksteady’ featuring The Interrupters’ very own Aimee Allen.

“Firstly, it’s brilliant to see this album get a proper, all-format release! And secondly, to feature one of the genre’s star vocalists of today feels like the torch is well and truly passed!”

Coinciding with this exciting news is the announcement of a brand new, extensive UK tour throughout October. Rhoda will be on the road performing tracks from ‘sings The Bodysnatchers’, as well as songs from her triumphant top ten album ‘Version Girl’. Check out the full list below.

‘Rhoda Dakar sings The Bodysnatchers 45 Year Edition’ will be available on 3 Tone Vinyl and Strawberry Swirl vinyl as well as digital and CD.
