One of those five 12-inches was by The Pool, AKA Patrick Keel, a one-man band from Austin, Texas who released a string of records in the early '80s. Dance It Down / Jamaica Running is without a doubt a worthwhile reissue. "Dance It Down" is a bright and breezy cut of new wave, available here with or without Keel's quasi-rapping. "Jamaica Resting" and the slightly revved up "Jamaica Running" are lazy groovers full of woody percussion. (If they sound oddly familiar, it's because LCD Soundsystem "referenced" them quite liberally on This Is Happening's "Dance Yrself Clean.")
We also get rare "European Remix" versions of "Dance It Down" and "Jamaica Running," though they only weigh down the record. Heard three times in a row, even fine tracks like these start to get old. As a label, Dark Entries is exceptionally well-curated and impressively thorough (this reissue comes remastered with new artwork and a 12-page booklet of photos and press clippings), but they could afford to be more concise.
