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.

Hot Pants Party/Cool It
Tramp (Germany), 2005. New Copy
A heck of a great little party – even without the Hot Pants! Guy Morris grooves it here in a stone James Brown mode – socking with the bass on the beats, and really going for a heavy sound overall. The tune's incredibly catchy – somewhere between sock boogaloo soul and deeper ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
