Some stone cold groovage.

Crack Symphony/Plan B/DTMWIS
The True Loves
q-dee records

OK, so there are the E-Street band, and they're layin' out a stone cold groove behind that old guy. Then, Clarence Clemons walks up to the microphone and says, "We've had enough of that Boot Heel Drag, now we're gunna play OUR kinda music" and they launch into some sweet doo-wop stringage. That's pretty much what the True Loves do on this single on Q-Dee records. They hop from the sixties soul-sations that they play backin' up Eli "Paperboy" Reed, to some groovy ass Philly soul. They do it well too. Fat bass driven' with scattershot percussion and nifty organ fills. Only problem is, it isn't long enough. Just as you start to get your groove on, its done. Still, mighty sweet single, hope they put out some more. Part of a color vinyl (digital downloads too) set featuring Barrance Whitfield, Muck & The Mires and three unnamed artists, I hope they put out a second one, in Vomittone. I mean if you're going to do a color vinyl single, why WOULDN'T you do it in Vomittone?
