Single Of The Week: Little Anthony & George Benson – Electric Together (Radio City Mix) (DSG Music)
‘Electric Together’ is pretty much evokative of the obvious pleasure Little Anthony and George Benson had to be jammin’ together. A cut that initially saw the light back in November 2015 with production work by the likes of Preston Glass. An uptempo R&B driven joint, which British producer/remixer Nigel Lowis has beautifully enhanced, makin’ the proof once again of his undeniable musicianship.
“Electric Together, we’re burning hot…” says it all as to what one might expect regarding this uplifting song. Hard to not think of classics such as ‘On Broadway’, with a bit of MFSB / Salsoul feel.
Another illustration as to how time doesn’t have downside when speaking of true talents.
Release date: October 07, 2016 (DSG Music)
From Brooklyn, NY, Anthony Gourdine started singing lead in his early years with The Duponts. He then formed his own group – The Chesters – back in 1957. Consisting of Gourdine, Ernest Wright, Nat Rogers, Clarence Collins and Tracy Lord, the group became The Imperials the year after. They’re most likely remembered for ‘Tears On My Pillow’ which preceeded the break of the original line-up in 1960.
Gourdine reformed the group 4 years later with Collins and Sammy Strain. Together they scored a string of US hits, from ‘Going Out Of My Head’ to ‘Hurt So Bad’ among others. He left the group by the end of the sixties. He co-wrote ‘It’s Alright’ along with Sam Cooke which The Trammps released back in 1975 on Atlantic. And he also sang backgrounds on Nancy Wilson‘s ‘A Lady With A Song’ in 1989.
