Crack Of Dawn (COD) is one of Canada’s greatest musical success stories. Not too long ago, they released a music video for “Ol’ Skool”, a gorgeous R&B tune from their 10-track album, entitled, “Spotlight”.

“‘Ol’ Skool’ is as fresh and vital as any releases during COD’s musical career. The bubbly tune is destined to appeal to their adoring fan base and audiences interested in deep soul and R&B music.
Their “Ol’ Skool” single contains a relatable storyline, sweet soul vocals, and groovy instrumentation flavored with soul, funk, and modern R&B elements.
Crack Of Dawn
COD is one of the greatest R&B outfits and the first Black band signed to a major label (CBS).
Otis Redding’s producer discovered them, and they outsold their contemporaries Earth, Wind, and Fire in Canada.
Despite being tipped for even bigger things by Billboard in the USA, the band has been quiet until now.
Not too long ago, the band reunited and re-recorded some of their classic songs for a new generation of music lovers and their long-time fans.
The album features the breath-taking funk tune, entitled, “Booby Ruby”, and the guitar- and horn-driven “Crack of Dawn” song.
Also, the wah-wah-drenched glory of “Somebody’s Watching You”, plus the uplifting, back to the future jazz-soul of “Ol’ Skool”.
COD consists of Carl Harvey (guitarist, producer), Rupert Harvey, Alvin Jones (sax player), Trevor Daley (trombonist), and Alexis Baro (trumpeter). Also, Bela Hayman (keyboardist), Carl Otway (drummer), Mark Daniels (percussionist), Charles Sinclair (bassist), and Michael Dunston (vocalist).
In all, Crack Of Dawn’s music is classic and hovers at the helm of the ‘70s soul and funk realm. To accuse them as being a collective of experienced musicians would be putting it mildly.
