I WANT TO KNOW....CAN YOU FEEL THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD?
This is still a fantastic sounding piece of indie-funk some 17 years after it was first released:-
mp3 : Black Grape - In The Name Of The Father
mp3 : Black Grape - Land of 1000 Karma Sutra Babes
mp3 : Black Grape - In The Name Of The Father (Choppers Mix)
By all rights, Black Grape should not have been a success after the way that Happy Mondays had broken up. But the talent and genius of Shawn William Ryder should never be underestimated. Having said that, the remix version of the single is a bit dull.
A #8 hit in the UK. But the Americans never took to it. I guess radio stations were scared of the backlash from the religious fanatics if they put it on the playlists.
