BIG CROWN RECORDS: Crown Jewels Vol. 1

BIG CROWN RECORDS: Crown Jewels Vol. 1Big Crown’s Crown Jewels are out then. No, not like that – don’t be filthy – the monkey’s talking about new label comp. Crown Jewels Vol. 1 which, you guessed it, showcases the label’s not inconsiderable wealth of talent. Why, it’s a wealth that positively glitters and sparkles! Lee Fields – legendary soul survivor? On it twice – the title track of recent LP It Rains Love and another evocative slowie Never Be Another You. Actually – he’s on it three times if you include the El Michels Affair’s sparkling Wu-Tang cover Tearz. Like soul slowies? What about Lady Wray’s gorgeous soul groove Guilty or Bobby Oroza’s lowrider cut This Love Pt. 1? Like mellow psych-grooves – oh man have you come to the right place – gems from The Shacks, Thee Lakesiders, Paul & The Tall Trees, Brainstory, and Holy Hive. Want something with a bit more wiggle? It’s got to be Bacao Rhythm & Steel Band’s P.I.M.P. cover or 79.5’s glittery disco dub mix of Terrorize My Heart. See, told you there was no let-up to the onslaught of end of year comps.
(Out now on Big Crown Records)
