Bob & Gene with The Inversions - Upcoming Daptone 45 Release

Bob & Gene with The Inversions - Upcoming Daptone 45 Release cover

Interesting pre-release news from Daptone on another 'collaboration between  2017 The Inversions and 1971 Bob and Gene

Bob & Gene ft. The Inversions - It's Not What You Know (It's Who You Know)

Here are... the blurb and track

Producer Victor “Ticklah” Axelrod is back with another supple Reggae delight. After the success of The Inversions' last collaboration with Bob & Gene, Axelrod once again takes a seat in the Producer’s chair, this time with a tune a little deeper in the catalogue. Originally tweezed from the beautiful MO DO tape boondoggle, back in ‘05 - ‘06, this single has been a long-time favorite of the Daptone family.

One night in 1971, frustrated by their lack of the success, Bobby Nunn and Gene Coplin sat in the basement of 50 Orange Street and put together a record expressing said frustration. Equipped with only a guitar, bass, and piano - no drums (though you don’t even notice) - the two crafted an immaculate slice of Soul, aptly titled “It’s Not What You Know (It’s Who You Know)”.

Fast forward 46 years, and now accompanied by the rocksteady rhythms of The Inversions - the vocal stylings and poignant lyrics are reborn, sounding as fresh today as it did when it was crafted down in that magical basement. The VERSION flip is a delay laden masterpiece produced and arranged by Axelrod. A must for fans of Dub and Reggae alike. A truly gorgeous record!

Was really enjoying it. Until the vocal comes in. Awful mix. Sounds totally disjointed. And I say that as someone who rated  If This World Were Mine as pretty much my favourite soul album of all time. What a shame.
