Brand new heavies, the - trunk funk classics 1991-2000


Never stop never giving up
Never stop never giving up
Never stop never giving up

Never stop never giving up
Never stop never giving up
Never stop never giving up

Give it up, feels so good to be together
Spending some time, makin' love
Makin' plans to last forever
Stayin' true until the end

True, there ain't a minute in the the day that's without you
Hoping that you feel it too
What you want? What you're feelin' I am feelin' too?
Never stop never giving up

Never stop never giving up
Never stop never giving up
Never stop never giving up

Evergreen, growin' up but fadin' never
This is what our love became, free at last
Free from all the pain and sorrow
Never feel the hurt again

True, there ain't a minute in the the day that's without you
Hoping that you feel it too
What you want? What you're feelin' I am feelin' too?
Never stop never giving up

True, there ain't a minute in the the day that's without you
Hoping that you feel it too
What you want? What you're feelin' I am feelin' too?
Never stop never giving up

Take your time won't you try love
Not a thing you can buy love
Take your time won't you try love
Not a thing you can buy love

Never stop never giving up
True, there ain't a minute in the the day that's without you
And I'm hoping that you feel it too
What you want? What you're feelin' I am feelin' too?
Never stop never giving up

Oh true baby baby
Never never stop, you never never never never never come
Never stop, never stop

Many of the artists who were part of Britain's soul scene of the late '80s/early '90s, including Soul II Soul , Lisa Stansfield , and Caron Wheeler , took a high-tech, neo-soul approach, combining '70s-influenced R&B and disco with elements of hip-hop. The equally impressive Brand New Heavies , however, used technology sparingly, stressed the use of real instruments, and were unapologetically retro and '70s-sounding through and through. Drawing on such influences as the Average White Band and Tower of Power , the Heavies triumph by sticking with the classic R&B approach they clearly love the most. The band has a jewel of a singer in N'Dea Davenport , who is characteristically expressive on "Dream Come True" and "Stay This Way." Real horns -- not synthesizers made to sound like horns -- enrich those gems as well as the sweaty vocal funk of "People Get Ready" and "Put the Funk Back in It" and the jazz-influenced instrumental "BNH." While this fine album enjoyed cult hit status, it was sadly ignored by American urban contemporary radio.

A single, "Got to Give", came out on Cooltempo before the Brand New Heavies signed to Acid Jazz Records and released Brand New Heavies to critical acclaim. The band signed to a division of Chrysalis Records in the UK, [1] and American distribution was picked up by influential label Delicious Vinyl , and N'Dea Davenport (who had signed an artist development deal with Delicious Vinyl ) joined the group. A revamped version of the first album with vocals by N'Dea Davenport was then released, and the singles "Dream Come True", "Never Stop" and "Stay This Way", all with Davenport on lead vocals, became hits on both sides of the Atlantic , with the latter becoming a music video directed by Douglas Gayeton that saw heavy rotation on MTV.
