Crack Of Dawn is one of the greatest R&B outfits and the first Black band signed to a major label (CBS).

They were discovered by Otis Redding’s producer and 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”.

Crack Of Dawn 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.
