The fiery, 1958, Latin Jazz rug-cutter — backed with the 1972, Purdie-propelled, fatback-funk version, from the Fritz The Cat soundtrack.

Bleeping, off-its-head disco… This is great.

A brilliant, tough, mid-70s funk work-out; and some nostalgia, with wistful falsetto and low-riding narration. Formerly known as Bump And The Soul Stompers, led by Jerald ‘Bump’ Scott, from Kansas City.

Killer NYC space-disco — burning strings and horns, jazzy guitar, shuffling keys, bubbling bass — and the bona fide jazz-soul classic Sail On, complete with steel pans. Originally self-released in 1978.

Shell-shocked LA kids playing music on junk and scrap-metal instruments, from 1971, blasting a blazing mardi-gras Chris Kenner way up into West Hollywood. Nik Nak Paddy Whack on the flip. Great.

Exciting apocrypha from this occasional vocalist for James Brown.

The two female rappers doing over the Sugarhill Gang for Joe Gibbs in 1979, and really letting their hair down for the second take.

Ace mid-seventies Latin disco, both sides, with brilliant brass and percussion. That’s Lesette Wilson singing on the Bobby Hebb. Sam Burtis on trombone. Arranged by Milton Hamilton.
