Brand New Heavies – Get Used To It

Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 12: BMV #12, 3-For-$10 Deal #7 – Brand New Heavies – Get Used To It

If Shelter was their danceable radio-friendly (per J.) album with a different singer, then GUTI is their 70s soul revue album. Yeah, there’s a couple of twinges that lean on dancy-isco but they’re quickly replaced by a helluva groove thoughout. I mean, straight outta James Brown-land, folks. I had Roberta Flack moments on this one, too, the whole gamut of that sweet, sweet soul sound…

Check out Right On. Hit up 1:15-2:18 for glorious TRUMPET! I mean, GodDAMN! Then perk up again at 2:35 to the end for a saxy groovy good time with the trumpets joining in again. Oh my goodness. 

Hit It Or Quit It? Definite Hit.

Brand New Heavies – Shelter

And now we move to the 3-For-$10 Deals at BMV…

Pride Of Taranna Series Pt. 6: BMV #6, 3-For-$10 Deal #1 – Brand New Heavies – Shelter

I like the BNH, it’s damn funky music. Built for parties. The bass end is thick and poppin’, the soulful music punches all the happy buttons, and the vocals, provided here by Siedah Garrett (her only album with the band) are sweet and smooth and bring a real connection to the music. Some people were upset when N’Dea Davenport left, but I think Siedah did a smashing job here. I like them both!

Call it acid jazz, new soul, neo-funk, jazzy R&B, whatever you like. This music has soul, it’s fun, and most importantly it has the groove. The groove is everything. 

Hit It Or Quit It? This total party jam is a Hit!
