Andre Williams And The Sadies Night And Day on 180g LP + Digital Download
Canada’s finest live band, The Sadies, have reunited with explicit soul singer/cult legend Andre Williams for Night and Day on Yep Roc records. Night and Day is the result of sessions that began in 2008 at Key Club Studio in Detroit, capturing Andre, then 70 years old and still using at the time, at his most raw, honest, and immediate with absolutely no filter.
Andre is aided here by a stellar cast of musical friends, dirty bluesers who have earned the trust of the ancient hustler, including Jon Spencer (who directed these sessions) and Matt Verta-Ray of Heavy Trash, Danny Kroha of Detroit’s own gutter-blues superheroes, The Gories, the unsinkable Mekon, Jon Langford, and of course, behind it all, The Sadies’ long-time line-up of Dallas Good on guitars and keys, his brother Travis Good on guitars and fiddle, Mike Belitsky on drums, and the mighty Sean Dean on the bass.
The resulting record is a modern classic, with Andre showing remarkable range-from heartbreak and bitterness to ribald humor, swagger, raunch, sleaze, fear and retribution, romance gone right and romance gone wrong, and all in the spirit of the sloppy fun that has made him a legend. Andre Williams represents as the first and last of a breed of pimp-rolling R&B wise men, the real deal, an authentic totem of the low-down and disreputable, a man who has played outside the law, and outside the record business, and somehow managed to come out not only alive, but with a fervent cult following behind him.
