Former Chicken Shack singer is to soul what Linda Thompson is to folk -perhaps the UKs greatest practitioner. Yes, this song is a cliche but it wasn’t when she covered it and this is among the best versions I’ve ever heard – A

(You Make Me Feel) Mighty Real – Frankie Knuckles Directors Cut – This is the exact diving line between disco and House, Sylvester’s greatest disco song of all time is given a nine minute blow out, the beat is all over it but essentially Knuckles takes the title hook and loops it and loops it and loops it – A+

They’ve been touring on and off since the excellent 13 was released last year and this is about as big a concert as they are gonna get.

By admin | March 1, 2014

WHERE she even got the blood from?! Did she collect it over a period of time? Did she collect drops from paper cuts and scratches? It’s disturbing and repulsive. (Upon further reading…not for the faint of heart…it was in fact her menstrual blood. What..The..Actual..F…?)
