Boomkat Product Review:
Always restlessly exploring the most obscure and otherwise forgotten detours taken during the evolution of soul music, the Numero Group offers up a compilation of recordings made between 1975 and 1981, when a group of Detroit and Chicago natives decamped to Dimona, Israel with the aim of combining their own musical influences with the textures and messages behind Afro-Israeli Hebrew culture. While devotional music certainly plays its role within this material (a cursory glance at the song titles will confirm that: 'Burn Devil Burn', 'Our Lord And Savior', 'Prince Of Zeal'), sonically, this is by no means a straight-laced, pious affair, instead stoking up some raucous brass and swaggering wah-wah guitar, largely thanks to the prog-funk of The Soul Messengers, who feature heavily on the disc, serving up a whopping ten tracks. There's a decent showing for loopy religious tracts too: Sons Of The Kingdom's 'Modernization' - a slightly farcical assault on the alleged tyrannies and failures of technological progress - proves especially entertaining, lodging complaints about the unreliability of air travel and medical developments. Even people who live in apartment buildings are criticised ("What kind of people desire to live so high?"). For all its conservatism, this is all very entertaining and sustains a high musical standard throughout. Unless you're (the late, great) Christopher Hitchens or Richard Dawkins, you're likely to find plenty of fun to be had here.
