These reverential glances over the shoulder would be dispiriting if they weren't so well-executed. The Kings imagine a parallel universe of R&B, one where the Motown sound continued, indifferent to changes in style and culture. That the Kings apply themselves to their craft with such enthusiasm and jubilation makes their love of careworn 45s seem positively visionary. To put it another way: in this case the future is the past.
