You know 'em, you (should) love 'em, Tim Lee and Bobby Sutliff, the duo aka The Windbreakers, one of the most genuine and consistently gratifying guitar pop acts to emanate from the deep south, circa the Reagan-era. I've dedicated no shortage of space to them over the tenure of this site, be it via their Electric Landlady and At Home With Bobby and Tim cd reissues, not to mention a couple of Tim Lee side projects. I have one more morsel from the Windbreakers oeuvre to impart, namely this 12"/ep, featuring the sitar-flavored "I'll Be Back," an emphasis track from the band's 1986 Run LP. Like the Plimsouls? You'll be totally down with this tasty jam. It's backed with two exclusive tracks. First up it's "Don't Take Her Out of My World," a cover of an early, pre-stardom Katrina and the Waves song. The final selection, "Things We Never Say" was penned by Lee collaborator Howard Wuefling.
BTW, in case you weren't aware, Bobby was critically injured in a 2012 car accident, which you can catch up to date on here. While he was on the mend, a tribute CD, Skrang! Sounds Like Bobby Sutliff was curated to raise funds for his recovery. It's still available through Paisley Pop.
