VIDEO: Darondo – Listen To My Song
Check out the above video to Darondo‘s track Listen To My Song from his 2006 LP, on Ubiquity, Let My People Go. Darondo is looking as classy as ever and it’s good to finally see an official video released from Let My People Go, which was one of 2006′s finest delights.
For those not in the know, Darondo was a soul singer from way back who choose to keep his talent to being just a hobby – that was until a few years ago when Ubiquity managed to catch up with him and put out remastered versions of his old work via their Luv N Haight imprint. He was a high-roller in the Bay Area of San Francisco in the 70s, driving about in a Rolls Royce – there were rumours about Darondo being a pimp, which he denies to this day. But between opening for the likes of James Brown, to hosting his own cable TV show, all things on the music front went quiet until more recently. There has been talk of fresh material in the pipeline, but nothing has materialised as of yet, so perhaps this video is a sign of things to come? We shall see!
