Welcome to August! And to celebrate what will be a very busy (or should I say “hot!) month for us here at Omnivore, we’d like to share the funk! Check out “I Don’t Understand It” from the upcoming Darondo CD & LP Listen To My Song: The Music City Sessions.
Get the funk out of here, you haven’t heard Darondo? Well, don’t feel bad. With our first release in partnership with Ace Records UK, Omnivore is releasing the long-lost mid-’70s studio sessions from Darondo at last. We’re ready to bring this cult artist into the mainstream.
In stores August 23, Listen To My Song: The Music City Sessions features two of Darondo’s most well-known tracks—”Didn’t I” and “Listen To My Song”—the LP adds eight previously unissued recordings taken from the same 1973-1974 sessions. The first 2,200 copies worldwide have been pressed on translucent brown vinyl. But wait, there’s more! The expanded 16-track CD version features all of the above plus four more unreleased tracks from those sessions.
Assembled in full cooperation with the artist, Listen To My Song: The Music City Sessions is a virtual treasure trove of indispensable street funk and soul from one of the most fascinating San Francisco Bay Area music legends.
