7-inch, Vinyl record


5.00 3

Raw funky soul with a old school feel – a cut that sounds like a lost 45 from the late 60s or early 70s – and a killer new track from New Orleans legend Willie West – backed by Finnish funk combo The High Society Brothers! "The Devil Gives Me Everything Except What I Need" is a slow rolling funky soul tune, but it's hardly a downer – starting with spare funk drums before Willie's deeply soulful, just gritty enough vocals come in, telling the tale over a vamping guitar groove, organ, and punctuated by brass. The instrumental is on the flip. A fantastic tune!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Skin's Funk/Big Chase
Tramp (Germany), Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Plenty of funky flute on Skin Williams' excellent "Skin's Funk" – a tune that romps along mightily with some tremendous heavy drums – and which has the flute almost blowing its stack with a really hard-edged solo! The tune's a beautiful cooker through and through – with ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
