For the joy of those who know (and even more so for those who don’t..), here come some Classics with the capital C.
Treated, and re-edited by the unusual suspects, these gems shine for quality originality, and most of all, variety. From the late 60’s (B2) to the 21st century (B3 came out only a few years ago), this 12” encompasses some immortal tracks.
A1 had to be one of the most air-played tune of the ‘80s, given the POPularity it still enjoys.
A2 is one of the finest moments in a legendary Funk-ateer’s career: top class arrangements and groove.
B1 sounds like the perfect summer outdoor party tune…boogie-oogie-oogie! No… not that one that’s been rinsed for decades; this one’s less predictable.
B2 shows there’s room for bop-modal deepness in this killer 12; going back as far as the late 60s… on Blue Note of course. Closing the series B3, a real surprise duet of the new millennium from an album that even topped the charts in 2004… smashing!
DJ or not, this 12 is real hot! Bring out those BBQ grills, for we got the soundtrack.
