ex Motown soul singer FLOYD LAWSON is backPublished on Martedì, 18 Gennaio 2011
More than 35 years since his latest release, Record Kicks proudly presents a brand new single by FLOYD LAWSON, ex-Motown soul singer and member of The Hearts Of Stone. New 45 "Roof Top Sugar" / "I Ain't Going Nowhere" is limited to 500 copies and will be released on February 7th, but can already be bought in advance now, exclusively here at the RK website! Side A's "Roof Top Sugar" is an uptempo funky crossover number sure to become a party favorite, while "I Ain't Going Nowhere" is a mellow midtempo bit of raw soul. The original soul king is back!
Floyd Lawson & The Hearts Of Stone gained notoriety in 1970 when their debut album “Stop the World: We Wanna Get Off” was released on Motown's subsidiary label VIP. The group then moved to Canada and recorded second full-length "Coming Out" 5 years later, though it remained unreleased until Afrokats Records reissued a limited bunch of LPs in 2007. In collaboration with Record Kicks, super crossover soul gems “Kgee” / “It Only Takes A Minute Girl” and “Air I Breathe” / “Rated X” were extracted from that record and released on 45. "Roof Top Sugar" / "I Ain't Going Nowhere" therefore officially marks Floyd Lawson's return on the scene after 35 years, but don't sleep, 45 is limited to 500 copies!
