'You Ain't Changed' by The Delgonives

Bandtraxs are delighted to release this version of ‘You ain’t changed’ by The Delgonives, co written by UK performer Johnny Boy Pryers and established UK songwriter Carl Dixon. It follows on from the earlier 2018 release by Johnny Boy also on Bandtraxs Records. This collaboration resulted in a truly authentic sounding blue-eyed soul masterpiece with elements of 60s Detroit soul and Carolina Beach Music. Carl and Johnny had communicated via email since 2007 with a view to someday working together and after meeting face to face at a Butlin’s soul weekender a few years ago, they decided to come up with a song idea and pursue a vocal for it. What transpired after scratch vocals were laid down by Carl for Johnny’s version, it was realised this could easily be a contender for a future ‘The Delgonives’ release also as it fits their style perfectly. Cleverly using the same backing tracks, a number of mixes now exploit the terrific melody and groove of this song and give it further appeal. There are also six instrumental versions to enjoy also.
