A good record is the cure for a bad day. You might be down on your luck, up the creek or on the skids – but it's clinically impossible to stay depressed when Si Cranstoun's 'Old School plays.' In a monochrome world, this album is a spring-heeled burst of technicolor soul, scattering your worries and shaking your feet.

A good record is the cure for a bad day. You might be down on your luck, up the creek or on the skids – but it's clinically impossible to stay depressed when Si Cranstoun's 'Old School plays.' In a monochrome world, this album is a spring-heeled burst of technicolor soul, scattering your worries and shaking your feet.

Si has already been dubbed "the king of vintage" by The Express and enjoyed rave endorsements from influential DJs like Terry Wogan and Chris Evans. Now, released in 2016 on Ruf Records, 'Old School' ups the ante, with Si setting the controls for the golden era and tipping his hat to formative influences like Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke and Big Joe Turner.

While Old School's stylings are unashamedly retro, this album's time is unmistakably now, driven by the original song craft and acclaimed vocals of a bandleader who's given the vintage scene fresh impetus.

Indeed, Si's vision for Old School was so clear that in addition to supplying those golden vocals and multi-instrumentation, he also produced a mix that turns back the clock.

Old School defies you not to dance. You'll be pulled onto the floor by the plinking piano and parping brass of the title track. You'll stay there for Vegas Baby, which bottles all the sticky thrills of a night on the Sin City Strip, complete with Reet Petite-style rolled syllables.
