Amanda Joy with Diamond Street Players - Million Miles (Gemco)
11th February 2019
Amanda Joy with Diamond Street Players
A: Million Miles
B: Murky Retrograde
Atlanta based label Gemco have used their time during the dark winter months wisely. Carefully overseeing their latest pet project that now sees the light of day for the wider world to enjoy. Debutant for the label Amanda Joy is backed by the Diamond Street Players on a double sider that's guaranteed to move hips wherever it's spun.
'Million Miles' is a tale of love and heartbreak that's spelt out in this arrangement of heartbreaking musical notes. Misery has no right to sound so good on wax but far be it from us to stand in the way of affairs of the heart if the result is 'Million Miles'! 'Murky Retrograde' is one for the dancers and shakers. A gear shifting side splitting organ jazz instrumental cut that surely must have tested the foundations of the Peacock Diamond Street studio when the record was made. Groundbreaking in more than one sense of the word.
This is another Gemco Records release that will leave you wondering if the pairing of Ms. Joy and the Diamond Street Players is limited to just these two tracks or whether we'll be treated to a full album down the road. They sound so good together!
