The Dontells – Move On Down The Line

the-dontells-move-on-down-the-line-45Along with the grip of original sounding and recorded funk and soul records that Colemine have put out, their latest release falls under the unreleased category. So unreleased, in fact, that that some fifty two years later, this Chicago soul belter is that much sweeter. Arranged by Johnny Pate and produced by Calvin Carter, they brought along some of The Windy City’s best musicians to create a sweet pot of soul in “Move On Down The Line”. Never before released, and held under wraps for a select few to get an ear on, this forty five is now seeing the light of day with a proper release. We are excited that Colemine Records is the one doing it. Akin to a Curtis Mayfield track, this sweet as honey side is one of the best unreleased soul tracks we have heard in a while. We haven’t been this excited since the doo wop soul of Penny and The Quarters “You and Me” was unearthed by the Numero Group. With harmonies, horns, and Pate’s arrangements, this exciting seven inch will be making its way in many boxes for the soul nights and soul clubs throughout the globe. It have been recorded in 1965, but it is a hit here in 2017 without a doubt. Check out the sweetness below on Colemine’s Transistor Sound imprint. Dig!

Buy the record here, available March 3rd.

Keep Diggin’!
