The Sugarman 3 - What the World Needs Now, LP + Download Card
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.
