CBLL06 Jones & Gaston and The Cannonballs
27th October 2016
CBLL06 - RELEASE ALERT!
Jones & Gaston and The Cannonballs
"Do You Get The Message"
"We Got The Message"
Back in the day, Robert Jones and Berdell Gaston referred to themselves as ‘sidemen’. They played with a variety of groups, big bands and combos, but never launched solo careers. Their musical journey started in the home of southern soul , the legendary Muscle Shoals. It was here that Mr Gaston penned this amazing track ‘Do you get the message’, recording the first demo using the vocal skills of Mr Jones.
A version of the track was released by the Grey Imprint Band on the Clear Hill label, but both Messrs Jones & Gaston were not part of the group!! Robert Tauman was responsible for the Clear Hill recording, bringing together a clutch of Dayton Ohio musicians to release what has become a monster elusive 4 figure rarity within the current soul scenes.
Avid collector, soul connoisseur and veteran DJ Dave Thorley unearthed the original vocal demo by Jones & Gaston and presented it to the Cannonball crew for their assistance. What we have here, is a collaboration between the original writers and artists, the man who discovered the demo, and the studio that could bring to life the vision of Berdell Gaston.
Once again, Cannonball Records go the extra mile to bring you the most exciting releases around. An incendiary dancefloor bomb that looks set to captivate clubs around the globe. A sterling follow up from the summer smash Big Lee Dowell & the Cannonballs ‘What I done wrong’. Best advised to get your order in pronto!
