Review: Back to 1975 for this insanely rare four-figure-ticket funk piece. With a groove so lavish it spills over into two parts, everything about this tickles the right spot. Shrilling horn fills, thumping breaks, swooning harmonies on the chorus and an open top vibe that's so tangible you can feel the breeze. Spotted passing hands for over 2000 quid in the past, this reissue is long, long, long overdue. Easy does it!
Review: Following exceptional reissues from Gloria Barnes and Africano, the currently spotless soul excavators Sunset continue with another outstanding reissue. Last pressed in 1973, this was the Michigan funk troupe's only 45" and has been known to pass hands for several hundred in the last few years. Big breezy soul with jazz-tinged sweeping backing harmonies and slick guitar work from the band's lynchpin Michael Lewis, it's criminal that this was the band's only recording.
Review: Newsflash: we can't handle Jerry Washington's love. But we sure can handle his fiery soul! Armed with just a touch of jazz on the fills and chorus, there's an upbeat, insistent energy to this Glades reissue that happened to be one of his last singles. Meanwhile on the B, fellow Glades alumni Timmy Thomas winds us right down with much more of a sensual soul ballad in the form of the swooning "What They Can't See". Two stunning sides of soul for two very different occasions; Suncut deliver the goods once again.
