George Benson Little Anthony Electric Together

Soul / R&B Star Little Anthony and Jazz -Soul Grammy award winning Superstar George Benson penned “Electric Together” with hit maker and successful producer Preston Glass. They recorded the tune at Private Island Audio in Los Angeles, CA where both Little Anthony and George Benson sang lead vocals while incorporating a “classic George Benson” guitar solo.

Anthony Gourdine, better known to the world as Little Anthony, is quite simply a musical legend. His early R&B standards paved the way for the development of soul music, with songs like ‘Going Out Of My Head’, ‘Hurt So Bad’, and ‘Tears on my Pillow’ standing the test of time. With nearly six decades in the music business, Little Anthony is still going strong: performing with his group The Imperials, alongside co-founder Ernest Wright, and due to be performing in the UK next year at the Blackpool International Soul Festival, Anthony is also busy penning his autobiography.

Most impressively, Little Anthony has lost none of his legendary falsetto voice. Similarly, Jazz guitarist turned R&B/soul/pop icon George Benson also shows no sign of slowing down. He continues to perform dates around the world, to one-nighters to dates at prestigious Jazz festivals; in 2013 he put out a brilliant new album in tribute to the late Nat ‘King’ Cole. And now these two icons of popular music have teamed up with producer Preston Glass, famous for his work with Aretha Franklin and Natalie Cole among others, to produce an up-tempo duet in ‘Electric Together’. Nigel Lowis has produced, remixed, written & done some legendary work with likes of Dina Carroll, Burt Bacharach, Stevie Wonder, Ola Onabule, Luther Vandross & Marc Staggers. His work has recently topped many Soul charts on his co-owned DSG record label. Lowis's dream was to work with George Benson, so DSG partner Gary Van Den Busche contacted Preston Glass who had just written and produced, "Electric Together" and was excited when he heard Nigel Lowis wanted to remix the song.

The song itself is pretty catchy, with an infectious lyric that will have you singing after hearing it just once. It’s a classic Preston Glass production, with Lowis providing a groove for the vocalists to do their thing. Both are in fine voice, and its delightful to hear them both recording together. How Little Anthony, in his seventies, continues to sing so high is truly one of the wonders of the modern world. Benson is also given room by Preston to perform one of his guitar solos, reminiscent of his 70s & 80s hit recordings. This is the first single from a newly created album due on DSG called Soul City People with various artists that we love & respect with Nigel Lowis writing and producing for it as we speak.
