Another record I recently picked up while visiting Vancouver a few months back was Panama's 1978 twelve-inch single "Nights In White Satin". This original Moody Blues track has obviously been covered by many including Giorgio Moroder and Linda Law, however recently I've been enjoying Panama's version the most. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that I really like the group's gritty lead vocals, which has a bit of a Carribean feel to it. This track was also featured on the group's 1978 album Fire! which I also highly recommend. That being said, Panama also released a follow-up album to Fire! entitled Panama II, which has a great rare cover of "Long Train Runnin' worth checking out. Overall, let's just say it made for another nice find from my last trip to Canada.
