Sweet Pea Atkinson

Get What You Deserve

Blue Note



cd

Released: 22nd Sep 2017

£12.99


a rousing collection of soul-infused pop songs from the seasoned veteran.

Whilst Keb’ Mo’ did all the initial production for the album, Was wrapped it up by getting Atkinson to sing two Freddie Scott hits, “Are You Lonely for Me Baby” (which was also a hit in the ‘60s as a duet by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas) and “Am I Grooving You.” The producer was inspired by driving around with Keith Richards and hearing his tape of Scott songs, the latter of which was covered in the ‘70s on a Ron Wood solo album that Richards played on. Was had his reasons for steering Atkinson in this direction.
