By 1984, maybe a couple of years before, I got my hands on the "Views" book by Roger Dean, terric art and drawings. Very inspiring. To this day, I recognise drawings made by Dean on 70's album cover art, it's really one-of-a-kind.
By 1984-85 I had the chance to listen to Jelly Bean Benitez's "The Mexican". I was immediately caught by the breaks and beats. I love that song.
Recently I made an internet reserch on "The Mexican", and I discovered that it was not a JB song. It was a song by a 70's english band named "Babe Ruth", and that JB re-made the song, and hired original vocalist Janita Haan to re-sing the song. The song appeared on the BR's "First Base" album, that featured, to my surprise, cover art by Roger Dean...
