Freddy Scott- Got What I Need
Most people should know this one from the Biz Markie track "Just A Friend", from the "Ultimate Breaks and Beats" series, or maybe from Shadow and Cut Chemists "Product Placement" mix.. Basically its a must have classic.
Ides Of March- Vehicle
This is one me and my brother used to play a lot on a pirate radio show we were doing about 5 years ago. Those horns are just huge!
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings- How Long Do I Have To Wait For You
Its great to see Sharon Jones doing so well lately. She was meant to play Cork for the Jazz Festival but for some reason it fell through. Shame cause if it had gone ahead it almost definitely would have been one of the best gigs of the year. She did play Dublin though and i hear she put on a great show.
Rotary Connection- Respect
Incredible version of the Otis Redding/ Aretha Franklin classic by the psyche-soul group Rotary Connection. Although if you took away the lyrics the song bares almost no resemblance to the original. Definitely one of my favorite groups, such a unique sound.
Donald Byrd- Black Byrd
Classic Mizell Brothers production
JStar- I heard it dub
Great reggae bootleg remix of "I heard it through the grapevine" by London based producer JStar. Ive played this at almost every gig Ive done over the last year.
The Inclines- Pressure Cooker pt 1
Possibly my favorite 45 of the show. Those horns...
Frijid Pink- House of the Rising Sun
Great heavy version of the Animals classic. This was a huge hit when it came out and ended up selling over a million copies. Not exactly rare then...
check back next month around christmas for episode 2!
