James Hunter (and his Six) is back with his 4th record, this time on the same famed Daptone label that have been keeping the flame of this kind of funky soul music burning brightly for years. Hold On! has everything perfectly in place, from Hunter’s full-throated frontman vocals to the horn section sparring over the groovy rhythms. Full of soul.

If you like the R&B/soul of the early-to-mid-1960s, when Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, The Drifters, Ben E. King and James Brown were all on the scene in a big way, you are really going to enjoy what James Hunter has done here with his all self-penned original program of ten songs recalling that era and the great music. He and a few others are doing outstanding work in this area keeping this immortal music ever fresh. All the instrumentation is organic and true to the era that inspired this amazing music.
