British retro-soul band the Mighty Sceptres deliver an eclectic range of old-school sounds on their debut album. Led by guitarist Nick Radford and vocalist Angeline Morrison (who previously collaborated in the groups Frootful and Angeline Morrison & the Ready Cats), the Mighty Sceptres make it their business to capture an authentic tone. They don’t skimp on the details — from using period instruments and classic-style arrangements to hiring vintage recording equipment to replicate the timeless rhythm & blues sounds of the ’50s and soul grooves of the ’60s — and add a dash of Jamaican rhythms for flavor. The group’s singles earned them a reputation on the U.K. soul underground, and All Hail the Mighty Sceptres! offers a full dose of their passionate take on R&B and soul, buffered by Morrison’s rich, sensuous vocals.
