Ned Doheny DJ Set - Recorded Live at Spiritland
Be With Records' mission to bring Los Angeles blue-eyed yacht soul legend Ned Doheny to European audiences continues. In 2015 the label brought Doheny over for a highly successful tour (his acoustic set at the Greenwich Yacht Club was a highlight of the year for us) and they reissued the classic Doheny LPs (such as Hard Candy from 1976 featuring 'Get It Up For Love', a track featured on a thousand mixtapes over the last decade). It was a hard campaign to follow but Be With Records have done just that this year. In April they released a 12'' of the outstanding Red Ken remix of 'Labor of Love' from 1979's Prone). And a couple of weeks ago Doheny performed with a full band - and with Hamish Stuart from the Average White Band - at the Jazz Cafe in London. While Doheny was in town he did a DJ set at Spiritland in Shoreditch, a bar famous for its immense state of the art sound system. It's an eclectic, mellow mix running to almost four hours, and features The Chi Lites, Dr. John, Miles Davis, Eddie Kendricks, The Band and many more.
