I hope Thursday finds you all well and you’re looking forward to another groovy piece of wax from my collection. I’ve got something from the obscure section for you today, courtesy of a vocal group called Samson & Delilah. Now, this is (yet again) another one of those acts that I know virtually nothing about. Sure, they put out a number of singles and recorded under various guises but beyond the small pieces of information (regarding releases, dates, labels etc) that you find on the likes of discogs, I’m pretty much lost when it comes to telling you anything of any interest about the group. In that case I’ll just briefly talk about the song.
“Will You Be Ready?” is a funky vocal track with production that sounds (to me at least) as if it has been recorded considerably later than it’s 1967 release date. I think it could well be the keyboard in the song that gives it more of a “modern” feel and in my opinion is rife for sampling. I hope you enjoy this one and I’ll catch up with you all next week for another funky piece of wax that (hopefully) I know a little more about. Ciao!
