New Danny & The Champs album on Loose.

Since we put Danny and the gang’s last album out on vinyl, we’ve put his band on, got to see him play numerous times, become friends, got drunk and had him stay on my sofa. Therefore we’re not too upset that the new LP is coming out on Loose (who also happen to be our friends. Close knit community this record label lark).

It’s released on 16th September, is called ‘Stay True’ and was recorded this year over five days at North London’s Reservoir Studios with Champs bass player Chris Clarke (ex Rockingbirds) and Danny at the helm. Danny describes the scene: “catching sleep on the control room sofa, recording deep into the night, friends and musicians dropping by, inspired by the great soul, country and rock n roll of Stax, Muscle Shoals, The Band, Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham, Dion DiMucci, Van Morrison…Ronnie Lane meets Ronnie Spector!”

‘Stay True’ is the fourth album from Danny & The Champions Of The World. It’s also Danny George Wilson’s eleventh album which includes six long players from the much loved Grand Drive plus a solo outing (as Danny George Wilson) entitled ‘Famous Mad Mile’. Danny has been touring the world and making critically acclaimed records for nearly 20 years now, the first Grand Drive release was on Loose back in 1997.
