Digitally re-mastered and expanded edition of this 1983 album. The pseudonym Elbow Bones & The Racketeers was a musical project discovered and nurtured by August Darnell (Kid Creole And the Coconuts). New York at Dawn was released in 1983 with it's title track being the album's first single pulled from the album. The single spent five weeks in the Top 40 in early 1984 as well as reaching #24 in the Dance charts in the States. The album features lyricist Debbie Clarkin and Frank 'Pago Pago' Passalacqua' - lead singer with Gichy Dan. Additional musicians include the Coconuts, Carol Coleman, Ken Fradely and Lee Robertson. This album is a delightful fusion of 1940's-esque big band and '80s dance beat the likes of which had never been heard before. Cherry Red.
