Fingerprints Music

Double vinyl LP pressing. 2015 live release. For Sonny Knight & The Lakers, 2014 was equal parts unexpected and deserved. The release of their debut album, I'm Still Here, nearly 50 years after a young Sonny recorded his first single, began a tidal wave of accomplishments that includes a successful international tour and attention from major media outlets. From the album release party in May, through the end of the year, Sonny Knight & The Lakers developed their live show into a full-blown soul music extravaganza. Clocking in at just under 90 minutes of seamless music, the show is reminiscent of the tightly orchestrated performances of James Brown and Sam & Dave. After returning from a European tour in October, they booked a two night stand in December at long standing Minneapolis club, The Dakota. They put on two shows per night for a hometown crowd. Secret Stash Records turned the venue's green room into a make shift recording studio control room, bringing in their own console, outboard gear, tape machines, and microphones. All four shows were mixed live and cut directly to two-track tape, and the best performances were culled for Do It Live.
