Funk-Hammer: Naomi Shelton featuring Cliff Driver – Wind your clock

Ein zehn Jahre alter Funk-Hammer aus dem Hause Desco jetzt bei Daptone veröffentlicht: Naomi Shelton featuring Cliff Driver – Wind your clock:

Shortly before the demise of Daptone’s predecessor, Desco Records, at the close of the twentieth century, a 10″ test pressing was cut from a session with Gospel-Soul belter Naomi Shelton (then appearing under her married name, Naomi Davis). It featured Cliff Driver on organ backed by the rhythm section of Desco’s house band, The Soul Providers, and was considered by many in the family to contain the two heaviest sides they’d ever cut. Though a handful of these tests survive, traded or auctioned off by Desco insiders and tucked into the boxes of a few lucky collectors, the label’s doors had shut before the pressing orders could be sent to the plant and the record never dropped.

Now, ten years later, on the heels of Naomi’s first full-length LP, “What Have You Done, My Brother?” (DAP 016), Wind Your Clock, the coveted lost ark of every Desco fanatic, has been pressed to 7” and is slated to be issued to the public for the first time. Both sides are packed HEAVY with soul and promise to fill every nook and cranny of the whole they left in our hearts and record boxes when they disappeared and were left for lost a decade ago.
