Daptone or Soul/R&B/Reggae fans can rejoice! Victor Axelrod, legendary producer, arranger, recording and mixing engineer, as well as keyboardist, has refined various releases from the New York label for more than two decades.
'If You Ask Me To...' is the first LP under his name for the label - an excellent collection of singles released between 2007 and 2023, as well as unreleased tracks from Sugar Minott and Binky Griptite. The album's origins lie in a request from Daptone for a Sharon Jones remix (2007), from which the reggae version of 'How Long Do I Have To Wait For You?' emerged. This opened the door to further explorations of reggae/soul synergies within the catalog and confirmed the musical and cultural connection between Daptone's 'core soul sound' and Axelrod's passion for Jamaican music. Thanks to Axelrod's exceptional taste and the remarkable contributions of guitarist Tom Brenneck, original tapes from Bob & Gene's MoDo discography, members of The Frightnrs and others from the New York reggae community, the legacy of groundbreaking Jamaican artists such as Alton Ellis, Tony Gregory and Ken Parker will live on and inspire a whole new generation of reggae and soul fans.
