Editorial Reviews

You know that little something you've been missing but can't quite wrap your noodle around what in the world it could be? This is something of an epidemic here in sunny Bushwick Brooklyn, and if the fan mail and phone calls don't deceive, which they never do--this is happening worldwide folks. But don't waste another second pondering this proverbial hole in your SOUL, because Daptone has the solution. After years of research, 10 to be exact, it came to our attention that everyone's favorite funky instrumentalists, The Sugarman 3 hadn't released a new LP in some time. Well, of course!!! How could we have been so neglectful to our fans? Within hours of this epiphany Daptone Brass had the boys back in the studio. With only 8 tape tracks, a handful of peanuts, and a bottle of high proof Dutch Schnapps these gentlemen flexed their musical maturity--writing and tracking the entire album in 4 days. There were tears shed, and blood spilled over those four fateful sessions, but we're happy to report that what went down is some of the finest instrumental tunes ever laid to tape. Dig the masterful renditions of favorites such as: The Bacharach penned opus, and title track of the album ''What the World Needs Now Is Love.''--Quite a fitting title considering this record is practically saving the world from incomplete-itis. As well as JJ Jackson's SOUL classic ''It's Alright''--and for all you Bean Town enthusiasts, ''Dirty Water'' by the Standells (take it easy Mr. + Mrs. Know-it-alls, we know they're from LA). And if that ain't enough to make you wanna Boogaloo down Troutman St, surely their newly crafted originals will have your tail feathers shakin' all over.

It's been a few years since their last album, so I was excited to see they had a new CD coming out. I've listened to it a few times since it arrived, and I'm really enjoying it. It's not as funky as "Pure Cane Sugar", but it's solid throughout. If you're a fan, you won't be disappointed.

I expected more of Sixto Rodriguez's wonderful singing and it's all music - great music - but not what I was expecting.

This album is being misrepresented! I thought I was buying recordings by Sixto Rodriguez, the academy award winning Documentary subject of the 2012 movie! I resent being fooled! The album stinks!
