More Info:

To start off the year, Night Owls bring their next offering of Soul classics flip in their signature Jamaican stylings. This brand new 45 filled with the funky reggae grooves from Producer Dan Ubick on Guitar/ Percussion, Blake Colie on Drum Kit, Dave Wilder on Bass, and Roger Rivas on Organ, evoke tones and a feel that could be mistaken as a lost gem of the 1960's. Side A features the Helene Smith original "You Got To Be A Man" featuring one of todays top leaders in underground soul music, Sy Smith on vocals. A staple and cultivator of L.A's nu-soul scene, Smith throws it back to deliver a gritty performance that is an instant classic. Side-B features Chris Dowd (Fishbone) taking lead on the Brenton Woods hit "Gimme Little Sign." A classic that's been covered a few times over the years, Dowd's take along with Night Owls' unique twist featuring Roger Rivas laying some of the finest organ accompaniment we've heard, is surly a fresh approached and one to spin over and over again.
