ANDRE WILLIAMS

More from this Band



180 gram vinyl with digital download of full album. Canada's finest live band, The Sadies, have reunited with explicit soul singer/cult legend Andre Williams for Night & Day, set for release May 18, 2012 on Yep Roc records. Night & Day is the result of sessions that began in 2008 at Key Club Studio in Detroit and captures Andre, then 70 years old and still using at the time, at his most raw, honest, and immediate. No filter. Andre is aided 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 result is a raw, gritty slice of raunch rock that has attitude in spades and the hooks and playing to back it up. Night & Day, indeed. There is wisdom in these grooves. "Andre Williams is one of the great treasures of modern American music. A true original, he has never compromised in his art. As a result he has at times suffered the slings and arrows of career misfortune and critical misunderstanding. The fact that Andre could overcome illness, addiction and legal problems to make this new album with Canada's country ambassadors The Sadies, a record so raw, immediate, and powerful, speaks volumes to this great man's talents. It was an honor to once again work alongside Mr. Williams." -Jon Spencer ++++ Featuring guest performers: Jon Spencer, Kelly Hogan, Danny Kroha, Jon Langford, Sally Timms and Matt Verta-Ray. ++ Andre's second collaboration with The Sadies after thirteen years
