AdvertisementRough Trade Bristol is very excited to present a live performance and signing from Rhoda Dakar. This unique event celebrates the release of their new album 'Version Girl' released on May 26th via Sunday Best.
*Rhoda Dakar is back with her first solo album in seven years with Version Girl, a collection of reggae and ska covers by artists and songwriters she admires. Rhoda Dakar began her musical career as lead vocalist with all female 2Tone band, The Bodysnatchers. They only ever released two singles, 'Let's Do Rocksteady' and 'Easy Life'. After a year together they split and Rhoda went on to guest with The Specials in Europe and the USA, having featured on their second album, More Specials, for which she won the first of her seven gold records. After their demise, and before joining Jerry Dammers' new project, she recorded The Bodysnatchers' first original song, 'The Boiler', a harrowing tale of date rape, which was inevitably banned. The Special AKA spent the next two years recording In The Studio, spawning a top ten hit with 'Free Nelson Mandela'.*
Tickets for this event also include a physical copy of the fantastic new album on your format of choice to be collected from Rough Trade Bristol on the day of the show. More product information can be found HERE >> https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/product/rhoda-dakar/version-girl
