The Church Street 5- A NIGHT WITH DADDY "G" PT1

I can't find any pics of this band or the original record (my camera doesn't take the glossy Legrand in gold label too well, sorry) so here is a pic of the reissue. This is another saxtrumental from the house band at Legrand Records that later became the Gary "U.S." Bonds hit, "Quarter to Three." Produced by Frank Guida, this track is a rollicking southern soul hit from Norfolk, VA, that kicks hard from the lead in. I love the cymbal heavy drums (anyone who's played with me knows why) and the varied dynamics of the song lead by the amazing tenor work of Gene Barge (Daddy "G"). If you know the U.S. Bonds version, this seems a bit empty without his vocals, but it kills on the dance floor anyway, as it has the hand clapping thing goin on and the right amount of wholesome juke joint raunchiness.
