Blake Hughes guest blogger review of  Durand Jones and the Indications hit single 45 record..

As the name suggests, Durand Jones and The Indications is a modern take on 60s and early 70s R and B and soul, and a good one at that. "Morning in America" grooves old school, but its biting lyrics about the grittier side of American life is effectively topical, summed up in the chorus lines of, "It's morning in America, and I can't see the dawn." I like the song's straightforward arrangement - no bridge - and the political and cultural shout-outs to a variety of American cities are as real as it gets.I could do without the jarring and odd-toned guitar solo at the end, but it doesn't detract from the song's musical fun and lyrical power.

The flip side, "Cruisin to the Park," is packed with wonderfully soulful harmonies that accompany the lead singer's smooth falsetto offerings. With a nod to the Temptations, "Cruisin to the Park" is a nice mix of the old and the new. I look forward to hearing more music from Durand Jones and The Indications.


We have this 45 for sale as a gift set in our store Romany House Boxes.
