Sting: Back to Bass
It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of Sting. I love how he has constantly reinvent himself throughout his career.
His styles are so varied as he likes to incorporate distinct elements of jazz, reggae, classical, New Age, and world beat into his music.
The softer side of Sting
Before he joined The Police, he delivered milk with his father, drove a bus, did construction work and was a radio announcer. One of his earliest jobs in radio was actually reading the fishing reports for the Newcastle area.
I believe it was this early radio career that inspired this offbeat duet he included in his 2011 Back to Bass tour.
I was able to get a bootleg copy of the song from a friend of mine. If you didn’t see him on tour, this is the next best thing since I don’t believe he ever released it (or ever will).
I hope you enjoy it.
