A funk bomb fo’ yo’ earz. I went through a phase of getting into all things funk in the early to mid nineties but balking at the cost that original seven inch singles seemed to change hands for, settled for buying a few Classic Funk Mastercuts compilations albums instead, amongst others. My then tall lanky flatmate had this on a War compilation which, along with Low Rider, were frequently gracing the turntables and delivering the funk.

Must admit that the first thing that attracted me to this (probably unofficial) compilation, were the words “unreleased extended version” not that I was familiar with the track at the time. It’s just a default position, I mean why settle for a version that’s been edited by someone else when the fade control fulfils pretty much the same purpose and is under your control? Anyway, the original release of this laid back stoned disco-funk groover looks like it doesn’t grow on trees, so this compilation (which isn’t that common either) is a blessing. Chugs along nicely for over eleven minutes, a real treat and prime material to visit the restroom if you’re trapped behind the decks although I must say, time that would be better spent out in front, bumpin’ and hustlin’ yourself.

Dixie Cups – Iko Iko

A song that’s been covered loads of times, even this isn’t the original version although it is the first version that was a hit. This stirs memories from the eighties deep within the past recesses of my mind but that’s due to another cover, most likely by The Belle Stars. Stripped down, minimal and back to it’s roots, is how this should be appreciated and the parade rhythms of New Orleans supply the only accompaniment to the harmonies of the Dixie Cups.

Solar Quest – The Belle Of Atlantis
11th January, 2009 | 129 views

Sunday – a day of rest, contemplation and reflection from the travails of the week just passed and planning for the week ahead. The Belle Of Atlantis, weighing in at over ten minutes long, affords you some opportunity to do that; perhaps even take a micro nap for the more mature listener. Brought to my attention by one of the mixes that Bruce Bickerton put up on his website and have since also heard him play on his wonderfully eclectic radio show that I’ve unfortunately fallen out of the habit of listening to of late. This is an astoundingly beautiful track that fully deserves it’s extended playing time and is but one track from a double album of ambient material that is worth time and effort to acquire. Put your feet up, close your eyes and let your mind’s eye journey to the legendary city, summoned by her call.
