The Preservation Project returns to the decks with 2 amazing sides of their upcoming 7″ release that will surely be a perfect for the soul heads and good music lovers in general alike. As always with the label, these are previously unreleased gems that have been buried and finally seeing the light of day.
Side A features Maggtapp’s previously unreleased “Because You’re You.” This is a strong female vox lead sublime Modern Soul groover. It features a steady beat and a spacious arrangement – just drums, bass, electric piano, and organ – that lets the vocals float on top of it. It definitely could be a demo or a temporary mix down, as it could be a bit more fleshed out, but it is really quite good as is.
Joe McGlone & The Hot Pepper Band tear up Side B with another previously unreleased gem. “Love I Lost” is an anthemic cover of the Kenny Gamble/Leon Huff tune. It starts with an almost church like organ lifting you into a track that kicks wide open into a 70s Northern Soul floor filler. This is a classic strong Soul lead vocal with a harmony call and response chorus. Just try to keep from tapping your feet and then jumping out on the dancefloor.
