Ron & the Hip Tones: Tear On My Chin b/w People (feat. Ursula Rucker)

1. Product Details

New music from Philadelphia's recently rediscovered soul powerhouse Ron Aikens and his backing band the Hip Tones is a soon-to-be classic double sider. Following in the traditional "soul 45 rpm" single format, a ballad side with a funk side on the flip, here is the first physical release from the forthcoming LP "Ron And The Hip Tones". The lowrider soul feel on "Tear On My Chin" comes from a brainstorming session with Ron, producer P. Maxwell Ochester, and the two main songwriters Dave Cope & Fred Berman. It tackles heartache, pain, and loss coupled with the slow grinding groove only true heartache can produce. On the flip, you will find a nod to Ron's former band, Power Of Attorney, and their breakout single "Changing Man" which inspired the uptempo groove and sweet flute part. Hinting at the classic Philly Soul style, there are lush strings and as a bonus, the impactful and powerful message delivered by Philadelphia poet Ursula Rucker.
