First Listen – “Don’t Underestimate” two classic 70s soul voices coming together

earlyounganddarrylgrant

Lovers of 70s soul music certainly remember Earl Young, founder of The Trammps and the drummer credited by many as the creator of the disco beat. And we were all fans of Spectrum singer Darryl Grant.

Well, a few weeks ago we debuted for SoulTrackers a new song by these two legends, the terrific “Power of Love,” featuring an A-List band, featuring bassist Jimmie Williams, pianist Alfie Pollitt, guitarist Robert “Wawa” Legrand, percussionist, Pablo Batista, drummer Lawrence Bowens, guitarist Randy Lynch, and McKinley Jackson’s fabulous Detroit Horn Section. 

Well board-man extraordinaire Nigel Lowis has made a terrific Philly-style remix of this album, and we’re loving it. So is songwriter Melvin Steale, who writes: It’s not only HOT, but also pleasing to the ear and very tastefully done!!! If my dear friend Norman Harris were still alive, I’m sure that he would be extremely proud to hear how well Nigel Lowis has captured the “purity” and “essence” of the powerful sound that Norman, Ronnie Baker, and Earl Young created on the floor of the city of Philadelphia’s Sigma Sound’s Studio A back in the 1970’s.

The Nigel Lowis remix of “The Power of Love” will be released on the DSG label on September 21. It is our newest SoulTracks First Listen. Sit back and listen to a piece of music history…made today!
