The veterans of R ‘n’ B music known as La’Que have released their latest LP record album, “Who’s Backstabbing Who?” The album is composed of nine original songs for an approximate total listening time of 40 minutes. It has been released on the Walking Tall Records independent music label. Slick, sonorous, and irresistibly debonaire, “Who’s Backstabbing Who?” is an album which can’t help but revive the fire in the hearts of all who hear it.
La’Que cite as main artistic influences such notable performers as Anthony Hamilton, Paul McCartney, Maxwell, and the Temptations. Their signature, inimitable style is gilt with common qualities of all these, but retains that attribute which is perhaps most important to the groove and timbre of an R ‘n’ B record: that unmistakable Chicago sound.
With tracks written by longtime La’Que members Jimmy Lloyd and Terry Snodgrass, “Who’s Backstabbing Who?” is a reminder of what made R ‘n’ B unforgettable in its golden era of the 1970s. Bedecked with strings, bass, three-part harmonies and impeccable lead vocals, La’Que’s new album is easily superior to most of the rhythm and blues played regularly on today’s public radio stations.
Speaking of the themes of their new LP, La’Que write that it is, “Very direct to its listeners. We make our music believable and to the point. Our titles of our songs are self-explanatory and very heartfelt and soulful.”
More than merely meaningful, however, “Who’s Backstabbing Who?” has more boogie in its heels than James Brown at a Sunday service. Music fans who enjoy records by artists like the Four Tops, the Spinners, and Gladys Knight and the Pips are sure to be enthusiastic about this new LP from one of mid-western Chicago’s most striking and unstoppable R ‘n’ B groups.
“Who’s Backstabbing Who?” by La’Que is available online worldwide. Get in early.
