Description

The Mighty Sceptres sound like a lost musical treasure from the vaults of soul. Featuring the combined musical imaginations of collaborators Nick Radford (Frootful) and Angeline Morrison (Freestyle Records / The Ambassadors of Sorrow), The Mighty Sceptres cut heavy beats with soulful yearning and shots of funky sensibility.

The song itself is rich with significance. Its heritage is firmly in the minor blues tradition, exemplified by tracks like Rose Mitchell's 'Baby Please Don't Go'. Angeline is heavily influenced by Alan Lomax's recordings of prison songs and spirituals, and also by Emily Bronte's classic 'Wuthering Heights'. The eerie music seemed to lend itself to the development of a story around a little lovelorn ghost returning to its beloved, hiding shyly and tapping on the window when it felt its confidence surge. The song evolves into a swinging tempo as the ghost realises the futility of her endeavour.
