Sweet Indeed

dexter wansel featuring terri wells – the sweetest pain (1979)

On the occasion of the release of the first proper Dexter Wansel anthology, I was reminded of:

  1. Dexter Wansel‘s work has aged gracefully, and an anthology of the work of this musician/composer/arranger was overdue.
  2. 1979’s “The Sweetest Pain” has it all: melody, hooks, crisp production and a sweeping sense of drama. Time for a rewind – or perhaps, a first encounter?
  3. Composing “Nights over Egypt” should be enough to guarantee being awarded the keys to a medium-sized city.
