[MPFree] The Eminent Stars - The Club (feat. Steffen Morrison)
> Saxophonist Ben Mendes and drummer Toon Omen kick us a right one in the gut. This LP will wrench it with its soul grooves, as this freebie shows us, unrelenting, pounding those drums and riffin’ on those horns. Dutch ‘The Voice’ competitor Steffen Morrison sings the way he is supposed to. Meaning: lots of heart and heaps of soul.
Check out the complete LP because this lil’ ditty is but a taster and Tramp were absolutely right to press these ‘stars’ on righteous vinyl. It seems to me they are rarely wrong anyway, but let’s get back on that funky track. For instance the follow-up Ready to Fly featuring Imelda. If that doesn’t touch (and torch) your soul then please kindly bugger off and go watch that TV show with the auditions. All people with that GOOOD taste in music will do themselves a favor by taking in this LP front to back and get yourself some true soul that tickles your feet and shakes your spine. Actually almost any track on ‘Sittin In’ is funkier than the free deal. Which is mighty clever I’d say. So get on it!
