black joe lewis scandalous cover artBlack Joe Lewis and the Honeybears have proven beyond booty-shakin’ doubt that soul music has a place in the21st century. “Booty City” is probably the hardest hitting cut from their Scandalous CD and you can’t help but want to shout along with the chorus.

Aggressive, hard hitting soul music. Where have they been hiding this stuff? Think Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings but edgier. Think Scott H. Biram in a soul mood. Think, god help us, James Brown for the new Millennium. Think Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears’ new CD, Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is. Not a bad track on the CD. But start with “Get Yo Shit,” “Big Booty Woman,” “Sugarfoot,” and best of all, the opener “Gunpowder”.
