FORT KNOX FIVE feat. SIR JOE QUARTERMAN: Don’t Go (2016)

Joe Quarterman FK5 Dont GoRating: ★★★★★ “Give me the strength to carry on/ Cuz everything I’ve got is just about gone”, sang Sir Joe Quarterman all the way back in 1973, the big tease, since here he is in 2016 on a Fort Knox Five cut Don’t Go. Wait, what?! DC funk legend Sir Joe Quaterman does a new funk vocal in 2016 on a Fort Knox Five beat?!!! Yep, and it’s every bit as large as that sounds. Quarterman’s voice is untouched by the years while FK5 ensure the drums are crisp and uptempo, the bass is fat, there’s a full horn section and everything is dripping with subtle wah-wah guitar. Now that is the way to celebrate the third annual DC Funk Parade. Altogether now, “Step back one time, step back two time, step back three, ahhh – turn it around!”
