Grammy nominated producer HERB MIDDLETON (pictured) has worked with smooth soul crooner MARC STAGGERS several times in the last year or so and for his latest outing, he’s back with Marc on a rather special tune.
Soul veterans out there might well remember GLENN JONES’ 1987 recording ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’ and that’s the song which Herb has selected for the latest Marc Staggers’ vehicle, but there’s a little more to it than that. You see Mr Middleton has just launched a musical campaign which he calls ‘Back to The Core’. The idea is to gently reboot US R&B and the new version of ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’ is at the forefront of the campaign. So, to make the track really special he’s added the talents of original singer Glenn Jones, the Journal and Lenny Harris to add firepower to Marc’s svelte vocal. It’s a real ensemble piece and you can hear where Herb Middleton’s coming from, crafting a real old school flavour.
This new ‘We’ve Only Just Begun’ is out now via Moontown Records and we believe there’s a whole album on the way very soon. We’ll keep you posted!
