A – Betty Black feat The Family Fortune – “Cry Me a River”
B – The Family Fortune – “Shock Value”
Skyline Recordings are thrilled to be releasing this incredibly modern, yet classic take of the timeless, Cry Me A River. This is an AWESOME version. On the A side, Betty Black (aka Elisabeth Troy) delivers a unique and powerful vocal; backed up with the rhythm section TFF (The Family Fortune) comprising of the incredible Pat West (guitar, drums); Andy Ross (saxophone) & Ralph Lamb (trumpet). The goosebumps come and before you know it you’re singing and dancing along. The horns combined with Black’s vocals gives this a real Brit Funk, Diana Krall meets Grace Jones, tinged with James Bond vibe. This is a real ‘smiler’. A great 45rpm for Betty Black’s first single. On the flip, TFF never fail to deliver a deep and inspirational instrumental featuring Kaidi Tatham on keyboards and Andy Ross on flute. Perfect DJ tool.
DON’T MISS THIS 45 rpm 7”
This single is dedicated to Pat West for his amazing musicianship, and whom we will miss sorely. Pat recently sadly passed: Pat, you’re always in our thoughts.
