Diplomats Of Solid Sound
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This CD does not disappoint. My favorite track is Fascination. The group is awesome, even better in a live performance. The CD is a great deal, all the songs are good and the band has a truly unique sound. The insert is neat and well designed, with pics of all the band members. Defiantly worth buying. Anymore you can get any song online, but this is worth shelling the bucks for an actual CD.
The first cut is named "B-O-O-G-A-L-O-O" and that should give you a hint. Sarah Cram and Katherine Ruestow have a great voices and the band! the band! like the Band of Renown for James Brown (or for the "Blues Brothers" if you are of that age). Baritone sax, tenor sax, organ guitar and precussion. I was introduced by my daughter when she slipped her brother their 2009 CD "Diplomats of solid Sound featuring the Diplomatees". Can't decide which I prefer but this is great. "Gimme One More Chance" is a favorite. "No Man" is real bluesey soul number song with power. "Bailout" has the James Brown feel. "Can't Wait for Your Love" reminds one of The Supremes. I would like see them live so I could just get up and dance with my girl.
These guys are great. I'm not sure why the Diplomats of Solid Sound have never had the impact in the US that they've had in Europe, but this album is guaranteed is a fine introduction to a great band.
