After Out- Selling Earth Wind And Fire Canada's Funk Godfathers, Crack Of Dawn, Return To The Spotlight...


New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Crack of Dawn have been one of Canada's greatest musical success stories since their inception nearly 40 years ago. They combine Charles Sinclair's bass-rumbling funkalicious Parliament onslaught; the slick immediate joy of Earth, Wind and Fire and the tarmac-melting swoon of classic deep soul ballads, yet only now return to pick up where they left off.

Listen to new single, Spotlight, here: https://soundcloud.com/user-956988938/8-spotlight/s-NwcPC#t=11:09

They were the first black band to be signed to a major label (CBS), were discovered by Otis Redding's producer and outsold their contemporaries, Earth, Wind and Fire in Canada. Despite being tipped for even bigger things by Billboard in the USA, all has been eerily quiet for some timeā€¦until now.

Reuniting to re-record some of their classic songs for a new generation and long-time fans, as well as new material, such as their breakout single, "Spotlight", the album features a breath-taking combination of grindingly deep funk ("Booby Ruby"); guitar and horn-led sunshine soul ("Crack of Dawn"); and the wah-wah-drenched glory of "Somebody's Watching You". In all, the ten tracks featured rival any of the classic 70s soul and funk outfits, yet still bring a freshness and vitality to the songs that others can only stand back and envy.
