The Just Brothers’ delirious, spaced-out, jazz-funk-disco monster doesn’t let up for a second, over the ten minutes. Kit, congas and keys to the fore, the flip has been rinsed recently by Kenny Dope, Andres and co.
Lovely, rough, heartfelt doowop, with a dash of early Impressions: a perfect Valentine offering. Prix demos.
Twisted Chicago funk — fatback drumming and fluid bass, with foghorns, fuzz and tripping horns.
Syl Johnson productions, from the Lunar Rotation compilation of Twinight sides. Seared singing, freaky strings, horns whipped from Smokey — windy city class.
Two exclusives: Erykah Badu’s irresistible do-over of the euphoric album instrumental There, with Malian synth-freak Tidiane Seck; and a dub by Mark Ernestus. Lovely silk-screened sleeve.
Three deep funk instrumentals — HBE on the opener. Sound-wise, doubly lethal, as alive as vinyl gets. Silvered, silk-screened sleeve; limited.
Nice to have this luxuriating over twelve inches at 45rpm. The others are harder to come by; This Is How We Walk On The Moon is beautiful. Silk-screened sleeve.
Legendary undergound disco from 1978. An undulating stomper with grooving bass, boogie horns and sleazy vocals; and disco-psych on the flip, chuggier, with seedy flute-loops and smoky synths.
Sensational funky soul from 1972, urgent and surging. Great singing embeds What’s Going On in the penitential drama. The original goes for thousands.
More-ish combination of UK street soul and spiritual jazz, from Floating Points’ label.
Rhythm and blues nostalgia from early-seventies St. Louis — more emotional than The Delfonics (and a lot more than the Grant Green), with more backbeat.
