You are very welcome to become a witness of the amount of soul in the Teenagers’ blood when you listen to their brand new album “Not Too Young”. This album is filled with music that clearly displays their love for northern soul. If you like any kind of Soul this is the album you should spend your pennies on. We know the pennies are no easy money but they are easily and valuably spend on a soul album like this one. The Horns, the drums, the guitars, the vocals, the Hammond and the passion with which this album has been born, just about everything brings up memories of legends like Willie Tee, Al Wilson, the Dells and even Terry Callier and Edwin Starr.

If you are willing to move your hips and let your feet dance the way … then you are ready to listen to “Not Too Young”. You are gonna feel muy caliente! (so will your feet). Ayayayayay!

Things you always wanted to know about the Teenagers:

The Teenagers, as they are known on the soul circuit, play soul music with a visceral attitude; authentic and credible in a world where image is more often than not valued higher than music.

Since their formation in a borstal in Granada (Spain) many years ago, the band have had a clear idea of their influences and the musical spirit they wish to impart, with ’60s and ’70s Afro-American soul foremost in their minds. Their musical tastes are varied, incorporating Jamaican music and the roots of soul and rhythm and blues, as well as the subsequent development of black American music. Above all they love northern soul: the music and the culture. The Teenagers have soul music in their veins; when asked they say that they are not soul, nor do they make soul; rather soul makes them.

They have backed in concert such legendary figures of ’60s soul as Dean Parrish and P.P. Arnold, have supported The Jam, and their first single sold out within weeks of its appearance. Their songs are the product of years of passion, dancing to and pouring over the music they love, choruses and arrangements imbued with the true spirit of soul. Smart and with street attitude, they understand the language of the music, reviving the essence of Motown, Atlantic and rare soul. They’re better experienced live, where the forcefulness and presence of Al’s gritty vocal is supplemented by the sumptuous presence of Vanesa Spin’s brilliant Hammond, honest horns of Victor Mac Manaman and Juan Almendros and the classy rhythm section of Javi Frias and Gustavo Fernandez.
