"Smoothie Pie" features soulful vocalist extraordinaire, Dee, who has all the elements of a quality once-would-have-been and today-absolutely-should-be Soul singer. Dee works his golden, silky tonsils over smooth bass, dreamy 70s rhodes, organ and Memphis-styles horns. the resulting amorphous mulch is absolutely gorgeous...yet another perfect dream of a Summer soul hit. the flipside (how archaic! LOL) is the groovy and funky "Get Yourself Together" which has Dee get more rough, vocal and edgier. the groove, though still on the mellower side of funk still contains some great Organ, break-beat style drum loops and testifyin' southern horns. Does soul music get any better? Well, I for one love this and can't wait to hear more from this wonderful group who are upright, sturdy and taking no nonsense...real soul music is alive and well...and available on the superb G.E.D. Soul label. Down South music. Without any barriers.
