Bang! This one starts like a mofo – hard drums rattling in a monster break, and really setting the scene for Charles stark and soulful lyrics. The tune rattles along with some super-tight guitar – riffing away next to the bass in a double-time groove that's immediately gripping – and recorded with a superb sound that really takes us back! "Twilight Eyes" is a weirder number – very bassy, and done in a scaling style that has a few nice jazzy inflections as well – almost a post-punk take on deep funk at times – but still hard to the core nonetheless!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

A very cool remake of this cut from Sharon Jones – produced by Ticklah here with a sweetly dubby vibe! "How Long" still has plenty of soul here, but it also takes on a bit of a Kingston groove too – stepping along with a 60s rocksteady vibe that supports Sharon's vocals ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Daptone, 2004. New Copy
Sharon's got her political agenda straight on this one – working with heavy heavy backings from the Dap-Kings on a hip message-oriented cut that ranks with the best of the early 70s!

Very spacey funk from Lucky Brown – a mixture of slow-stepping bass, muddy drums, and some very cool keyboard bits – all sewn together with a surprisingly deep horn part on the top! There's a nicely percolating feel to the rhythms, but they sit back nicely in the mix and let the other ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
