Funk feels so right - Critical Quartet Experience

The spirit of James Brown and George Clinton have been caught in this time capsule. 

The French funk merchants, Critical Quartet Experience have come up with a soulful and punchy edit of a track from their debut album. This will be their first single, I Never Felt So Right. It is slated for release on 6th June 2020 on all platforms, for download and streaming.

You could be forgiven for thinking that this is a boy band at first glance, but that is way off the mark. The four young men who started this outfit about three years ago are all accomplished jazzmen.

The single takes inspiration from Soul and R&B aces like James Brown and George Clinton with a little jazz improvisation added. On the single musicians are - Arthur Dardennes: Vocals and guitar, Hugo Brun: Keys, Kevin Mesples: Bass guitar, Jonathan Rolland: Drums.

They have shot a clip for the song too. It is a good time romp through the French countryside. Edits are being made as we go to print. Watch this space for news of the video weblink.

Mystery Lesley Rae Dowling Single - a stunningly clear and emotional performance

Almost all  Lesley Rae Dowling (LRD) songs are lyrically a mystery. But a mix-up on the digital release of her  Split album resulted in another mystery. Three of her songs seemed to have gone missing. The delivery of a new production helped clear up the case. Tully McCully (McCullagh), long time producer of the singer-songwriter, while going through his archive, stumbled upon fragments of some of the early recordings he had made with the diva. Previously, in 2020 he got his hands on the multitrack tape of half of her When the night comes album and he did remixes of four songs. In 2021 he found some of her studio demos and created two new productions with them. None of them were the missing tracks. Single cover (c) Songwrights Publishers This year he worked with some out takes of a song that was recorded around the time of her self titled debut album but only made it onto her Split album some years later. A version of the song appeared to be one of the missing works from the catalogue
