Jan. 25, 2012 - PRLog -- Dave Ireland, singer songwriter, worked out of Amsterdam in the 1970s. Dave was regarded as a folk singer - he toured constantly, played acoustic guitar - you get the picture. But for anyone that listened, it soon became apparent that Dave was more than a folk singer. Underlying everything was a funk beat that drew the audiences in and after an evening with Dave, things were not the same again.

Classic tracks of the time included Mister Moonlite (soon to be sampled by UK funk band Sickwave) Nuclear Love, Lollypop and many more groovy tunes.

Dave toured throughout the 1970s and worked with Kayak, Sparks, Yes, Sonya Kristina, BB King and many more.

Small Talk was recorded during the summer of 1977 in the shadow of a derelict sugar beet factory just outside of Amsterdam. There is a very controlled feel to the track, as though passions are being held in check - and that feel echoes the lyrical content well. Acoustic in feel, the track is driven by a cool bass riff and a slinky synthesizer motif that underpins everything. Even after thirty five years, the track has a fresh feel and remains very danceable.

The track was unearthed recently by broadcaster and writer Casimir Greenfield and featured in a couple of radio shows about local artists (local to Gloucestershire UK) and has now become a local radio hit.

The track is now available for the first time on CD Baby. It's worth checking out.
