Boat to Bolivia


Released May 1, 1986

The classic debut album from 1986. This put Martin and The Daintees on the musical map and into the hearts of a generation of lovers of original, rootsy music. A collection of songs that were broad-minded in their musical influences and positively daring in their lyrical content. 

‘Aching with giddy emotion…this is an album to savour and cuddle tightly to your breast’
Mike Gardner, Record Mirror, 24/5/86. 

‘Here The Daintees dream in an often brilliant world of their own, laced with country, drenched in tuneful accessibility; crafting idiosyncratic pop from human beings mining hope and honesty in the day to day. A wonderful record which you should seriously consider buying’
John McCready, NME, 10/5/86.
