IT’S MAGIC.....

Thursday, 07 March 2019 11:47 Bill B E-mailPrintPDF

altTOM GLIDE'S last album – 'Divas', spawned plenty of dance floor hits – none better/bigger than the TERISA GRIFFIN vocalised 'Magic (Spell On Me)' and so, Monsieur Glide (in what he tells will be the last throw from that album) offers the tune as a single in the usual plethora of mixes.... 8, I think!

They come from luminaries like Sean Ali, Monk Julious, T Groove and the man himself (big Tom!). You can probably guess that the sounds captured range right across the soul soundscape – modern soul grooves right through to soulful house. As ever, pay your money...take your choice and your can do just that from March 22nd.

GOD BLESS AMERICA!

altISAAC ARAGON is a blue-eyed soul singer from Albuquerque, New Mexico and he fronts the band Isaac Aragon & The Healing. The team are a hard-gigging outfit and they say the highlight of their career so far was to support the wonderful Sharon Jones before she passed.

The band have just released their debut single 'Love Bless America' and it's a lovely slab of blue-eyed soul enhanced by the sweetest brass fills this side of Tower Of Power. It is rather beguiling and hypnotic and given what's happening with America right now you can't argue with the sentiment. 'What The World Needs Now Is Love'... amen.

Isaac Aragon & The Healing; 'Love Bless America' is available to download now

 

MY WEAKNESS....

altBeen a while since we heard from UK soulstress CHIDI. Her last outing (I think) was on Tom Glide's 'Divas' collection but before that we enjoyed her lovely 'Exhale' album. Sadly we've learned that her absence from the scene was due to her recovery after being diagnosed with breast cancer. Hopefully all is well now and we're told that Chidi is refocused and good to go again.

To that end she's all set to release a new single – the upbeat ballad 'Weak'. It seems that it's the first of a series of singles she will release during 2019 and like all her work there's a real personal element about 'Weak' which is released on March 18th - on SELAH Records
