The Spirit of Dolette McDonald

Dolette McDonald — maybe you know of her vocal work with the Talking Heads, or Sting. She was a member of both groups — both touring and recording. But Dolette’s catalog goes much deeper — how about backing vocals for Nile Rodgers’ Chic, The Rolling Stones, Steve Winwood, Nona Hendryx, Juan Gabriel for example! Dolette is a friend of FSQ ; she leads vocal duties on a few of our original FSQ releases via Soul Clap and Midnight Riot Records. Over the course of two hours we showcase some of the rarest jams featuring Dolette as a prominent vocalist, including her hook laden performances for new wave dons Blancmange, Cabaret Voltaire, and ABC. Dolette blows “Smoke Rings” with Laurie Anderson and “Adds a Little Love” with Gerri Granger. Rest in power to Andy Gill of Gang of Four and guitarist Harold Beane of Stax Records / Funkadelic – two of their tunes to celebrate their amazing contributions to the universe of music. The FSQ New Music Ferry’s shipment is a little lighter this week but the cargo is precious with select tunes by Gorillaz, Baxter Dury, and Moscow’s most soulful producer, Lay-Far.
