The Soul Providers & Lee Fields – Gimme The Paw

front

Before Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings… There was this.
Switchblade is (I think) Sharon’s earliest solo feature…
“Jones was the only one of three singers who were called into the session to show. Having completed all the backing parts herself, Roth and Lehman were suitably impressed with her performance and recorded “Switchblade”, a solo track with Jones. This track and “The Landlord” were included on the Soul Providers’ album Soul Tequila, released by Philip Lehman on Pure circa 1996. The Soul Providers—with members of the Brooklyn, New York City, bands Antibalas and the Mighty Imperials—would later go on to form the Dap-Kings, Jones’ current backing band.”
