The Real “Roxanne” in a Redux by @PeterFoldy

PETER FOLDY, “Roxanne (Redux)”

Back in the Fall, I wrote about Canadian (but L.A.-based) singer Peter Foldy’s return to the scene after a 40 year gap between albums, focusing on the song “Carly” from his album Nine Lives.  There was such positive reaction to his re-recording of his 1976 hit “Roxanne” that we now have an accompanying video.  The video puts the song out there again so that we can see Peter on camera in-between scenes of a carefree gal enjoying her time on a sunny day.  Do listen to the original below to compare – the redux has a wistful but still happy quality about it to justify the passage of time.  And like I mentioned my recent post about 70’s contemporary Andy Kim’s voice in his more drastic redux of his own “Shoot ‘Em Up Baby”, Peter’s voice has hardly changed – “Roxanne” is unmistakeably Peter.
