DELIA ‘DEE DEE’ GARTRELL: I Must Be Doing Something Right b/w Fight Fire With Fire (Vinyl 7″)(2017)

DELIA 'DEE DEE' GARTRELL:  I Must Be Doing Something Right b/w Fight Fire With Fire (Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ Is it me or are Rocafort Records on fire at the moment? They’re certainly doing everything right in terms of dropping this huge re-press of double Delia ‘Dee Dee’ Gartrell delights I Must Be Doing Something Right b/w Fight Fire With Fire. Turns out that back in the day, Delia was banned from singing rnb by her mother. Happily, mum hadn’t reckoned on the arrival of legendary funk-soul brother The Mighty Hannibal who not only ended up marrying Gartrell but coaxed these sort of gems from her. The A-side bumps out a saucy Spanky Wilson-type banger while the flip (also vaguely Wilson-ish) provides funky love-revenge vibes with prominent psych guitar work. Do. Not. Sleep.
(Out 18 September on Rocafort Records)
