In keeping with other reissues from the Espacial Discos imprint, Goya's "House on the Sea" is a suitably sought-after track. Original copies of the original 1979 12" on which it was first featured will set you back over a ton (in British pounds, at least), so this new pressing is certainly welcome. The track itself is something of a meandering, early evening delight, mixing stoned West Coast rock vibes - think slightly wild vocals, starry electric pianos and Steely Dan guitar solos - with a whisper of spacey synthesizer action and a few nods towards rubbery AOR disco. On the flip you'll find original '79 A-side "Mandy", an up-tempo, Steve Miller Band or Steely Dan style workout that's jaunty, groovy and tons of fun.
