As I've mentioned before, my extremely meager knowledge spreads increasingly thin the farther I travel from home. Thus I can honestly say I don't know anything at all about this record or Willie Smith.
That is, except that the 45 is usually a cheap buy and totally kicks ass [even though the mix isn't the best]......and well, that I'm pretty sure Cliff Driver [who's band provides the instrumentation] is still alive and well. He shows up on several fairly recent Daptone/Desco releases.
Hope ya'll enjoy.......
Here's a clip of Cliff Driver playing keyboards with the fabulous Naomi Shelton & The Gospel Queens in 2006.
