Smoke & Mirrors Sound System
Smoke and Mirrors Sound System’s New LP, UNDERCOVER

Undercover is much more than a passion project. It’s a lifelong obsession with music, from Rhytm
& Blues, Soul, Reggae, Ska, Rocksteady, and 2Tone, to New Wave. A picture may tell a thousand
words, but a song can transport you through time and space, or bring up long forgotten memories.
For some, listening to this album will be a soundtrack to their own formative years. For others, it
will be a discovery of decades of music to dig deeper into. I encourage everyone to go back and
listen to the original recordings with news ears and then, listen to Undercover to hear the spirit of
those recordings along with the subtle nuances and flourishes by all the great musicians and their
combined experience. This is more than a tribute. It’s a love letter in songs, a great mixtape given
to those you love.
