Edith Frost and Drag Cuty were kind enough to let me do a followup on her excellent new release It’s A Game. The song “Emergency” struck a chord for many with it’s tale of cheaters and broken hearts. Now the song “Playmate” looks at finding love and broken hearts from a slightly different angle as Edith sings “I want a playmate to run with, to press against in the night”.
Reminds me of the song “You Only” by fellow Chicagoan Rachel Ries’ in which she exorts her lover to “come to me, come tonight with both hands, you can be quiet but don’t be shy. I’ll leave the kitchen light on…”
Anyway Edith was a doll and gave me access to her archives including demos from the new record and country covers that were recorded for a project that never materialized. Here’s the demo of “Loving You Goodbye” from It’s A Game and a cover of the Coon Creek Girls’ “Lula Lee”. Now there’s 11 more songs you really need to hear from It’s A Game so head on over and see the cool kids at the Drag City store.
