Night Owls - Ain't That Loving You (feat. Chris Murray) b/w Are You Lonely for Me, Baby (feat. Malik Moore) (7")
Side A features Johnnie Taylor's Stax classic "Ain't That Loving You" flipped on its head, taking this sweet ballad to new dancehall heights. The song has a long history with Jamaican music having been covered by legends like Alton Ellis, Prince Buster, U Roy, Delroy Wilson, Hortense Ellis and Dennis Brown and, in America, by Black Moses himself, Isaac Hayes. Night Owls' version sits somewhere in between the classic versions with a hot and heavy feel aimed at getting you on your feet. Calling upon former King Apparatus singer, Slackers cohort and Ska troubadour Chris Murray, Night Owls have perfectly balanced their tough-as-nails riddim with Murray's soulful and sympathetic vocal delivery on top. "Ain't That Loving You" comes complete with catchy organ riffs, classic syn-drum hits and backing harmony support from special guest, The Expanders' John Butcher.
Side B is a corker too, with longtime friend and collaborator Malik Moore (The Lions, The Bullets, Ocean 11) truly owning the soul classic, "Are You Lonely For Me, Baby", originally released on Bert Berns' legendary Shout! label in 1966, with his commanding reedy and soulful tenor. Whether it's the Freddie Scott or Al Green version you know best, Night Owls bring you a fresh and fiery take on the song by adding their signature bounce, based loosely on U Roy's "Stick Together" riddim, while keeping the presence of Scott's original alive and well thanks to Moore's deep and immediate delivery. "Are You Lonely For Me, Baby" also features the iconic backing harmonies from Night Owls' #1 on-call soul sister, Destani Wolf.
