New album from JOEY NEGRO AND SUNBURST BAND
i hope its ok to post this here, just wanted to spread the word on this new release
'Moving With The Shakers’ was recorded over a period of 18 months and has been a real labour of love. The album features collaborations with Harlem soul legend Leroy Burgess (Logg, Universal Robot Band) Diane Charlemagne (Goldie ‘Inner City Life’ and Satoshie "Inspired"), Yolanda Wynns and Chaka Khan’s sister Taka Boom. While fulltime front man Pete Simpson, now well known for lending his vocal talents to the Unabombers’ alias, The Elektrons, also features heavily on the album.

One of my favorite bands. "Garden of Love" one of my all time favorite tracks. Will still get my groove on when Timmy Regisford plays it. Hopefully he will play it this weekend.
Playing the Deep Ones!
I love it. Thanks for posting this. I got into this band from the Joey Negro "Lust" cd. I love "We can Live Forever".
Loving the album! Every cut is killer, picked it up last week.
Rough Times destroyed the House Nation party this Saturday in San Antonio!!
thanks for the support guys. if you like those tracks, then there is plenty more of the same ilk on this new cd
this is what soul brother, top london jazz/soul/funk store are saying
"Fantastic mainly uptempo album combining 70's and early 80's influences with a contemporary sound, featuring the vocals of Leroy Burgess, Taka Boom, Pete Simpson and others. Highlights are the disco/funk of 'Our Lives Are Shaped', 'Sitting On Top Of The World', 'Days Gone By' and 'Put A Lyric In it' (which could have been recorded on prelude circa 79-80). 80's boogie style is represented by 'Survivin' and 'Fashion', the 4 Hero-esq 'Journey To The Sun' and 'Turn It Out' also score well. There's some good instrumentals 'Dusk' , 'Monterey' and 'Free Bass', and the 2 step title track. Best of all though is the Norman Whitfield influenced shifter 'Man Of War'. Probably the best retro-sounding album of recent times and one of the albums of the year."
