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.
