Boomkat Product Review:
Probably best known to the rare groove and soul scene for their 'Ghetto: Misfortune's Wealth' album, 24 Carat Black were a short lived outfit operating at the dog-end of the Stax Records era. 'Gone: The Promises Of Misfortune' was recorded during their time at the Stax studios, but didn't receive a release due to the label's collapse in 1975. Fast forward 35 years and the vital Numero imprint stumbles across the soggy tapes from the 'Gone' sessions, and manages to alvage six tracks of darkly sensual and dusky love songs with stunning orchestrations lead by Dale Warren. Prncess Hearn opens with the moody afro-jazz tinted 'The Best Of Good Love Gone', driven my exceedingly gloopy bass and spooked by ethereal hammond organ. 'I Want To Make Up' follows with a gorgeously eerie composition, stalked by John Wells steady bass and haunting backing harmonies. Bright horns crop up on the soul fired 'I Don't Love You' with the whole band seemingly awakening from a snooze, while 'I'll Never Let You Go' versions girl group the Tiares' original with spacious xylophone and bass interplay. The title track is worth the price of admission alone, resting on a mid tempo pulse with spirit raising vocals and a fluid rhythmic backbone, leaving the 12 minute funk jam 'I Begin To Weep' to finish the job with Robert Dunson's disturbed spoken and sung vocal.
