An ageless remix of Gladys Knight & The Pips

21 09 2008

This week’s edition of Soul sunday celebrates a brilliant ‘one and done’ remix of a soul classic by Gladys Knight & The Pips. Giving up was released in 1964 and never made a big splash, despite funky horns and a timeless theme. Fast forward to 2000. Dave Rabjohns, aka Hairy Diamond, finds the soul in Giving up and amplifies it ad infinitum. Word has it that Hairy Diamond lived happily ever after.

Hairy Diamond – Givin’ up (PPQ, 2000)
