Words by Jesse Serwer—
We were so enamored with the Lovers Rock revival vibes of Hollie Cook’s self-titled debut we named it our top album for 2011 and bequeathed her with “Rookie of the Year” status. Hardly skipping a beat, Hollie and her creative partner/producer Prince Fatty have already given us one of our favorite albums of this year in Hollie Cook In Dub. Revelatory dub versions of songs from Hollie’s debut predominate, but there’s also dubs of a few tunes that weren’t on that album, like Hollie’s cover of “And The Beat Goes On” by Philly soul greats the Whispers, and “For Me You Are.” The good people at Hollie’s label Mr. Bongo have given us a pair of Hollie Cook In Dub LPs to give away, along with a pair of bonus 45 singles of “And The Beat Goes On” and “For Me You Are” (featuring originals on the A-side and dubs on the B) for each winner.
To win the LP x 45s combo pack, here’s what we want you to do: Take a listen to Hollie Cook In Dub (if you’re not already jamming it daily like us) below. Then go to our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/largeupdotcom, “like” our page (if you haven’t already) and share the contest post to your own Facebook profile with a comment referencing your favorite song on the album. Winners will be notified a week from today. Good luck!
