Sure enough, a quick check on discogs revealed that it is now a £100+ record. Not for the likes of me, then. Ah well, at least YouTube-in's (almost) for free. Benjamin and co.'s 7" was released on Palmetto St. Recording Co., which seems to be a sub-label of the mighty Daptone Records whose garage imprint, Wick, just unleashed the zesty new Mark Sultan single. "Let Me Out":
It's sure to have people in highly flammable clothing frugging wildly at retro-themed dance parties the world over. Mark Sultan is scheduled to play both Edinburgh and Glasgow in March, 2018. Let me in!
It's impossible to keep track of everything. I look hard enough on the soul scene, but even so many wonderful songs slip past. Like "Breathin' Hard (Over You)" by Camellia Hartman & The Soulful Saints from early this year https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3fkK8zXHvIReplyDelete
I love those Benjamin (Dreamdancers and The Right Direction) singles, but missed out on them. He had some records out on the Cherries label a few years ago. Cherries seems to have stopped, but their (microgenre alert!) synth-funk-boogie output is worth a listen, especially the Social Lovers releases.
Oh my...that Camellia Hartman song is to DIE FOR! I ache in my gut that I don't have the 7". How will I cope?ReplyDelete
You spoke and we listened...fresh press of "Breathin' Hard (Over You)" should be in stores this spring with a brand new tune on the flip!Delete
