Heavy funk, all the way through – a brilliant batch of cuts from The Original Black Sheep Of The Family – and one of the only true testaments we've ever seen to their obscure funky work! The set begins with the massive "In The Forest" – a wicked, wangly groove that features righteous vocals on part one – then really takes off instrumentally on part two – with more than enough energy to warrant spanning both sides of the single! "Heaven" is a wonderful cut – warmly bubbling with a bit of modern soul energy, but also coming across with a more deeply spiritual undercurrent too – a bit like the best balance you'd find on some of the Soul Cal reissues, but also a totally unique cut on its own! "Do You Wanna" is a cut with a cool complicated bassline at the start, almost fitfully making its way into some funkier rhythms – all handled by the group with the best late 70s ensemble funk modes! (A beautiful package – gatefold full color 7" sleeve, with notes and photos!)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The Mocambo combo gets the Kenny Dope treatment – in a wicked cover of the hip hop classic "The Message"! The tune's an instrumental here, and the groove is played live – but it's got a nice similarity to the Grandmaster Flash original, complete with that vamping bit on the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Tell Me (parts 1 & 2)
Kay Dee, Early 70s. New Copy (reissue)
Snapping drums and heavy funk – a completely heavy-hitting number that rivals the best James Brown work of the early 70s!

Kay Dee, 2013. New Copy 2 x 7"
An amazing pairing of talents! Funk vocal giant Ricky Calloway works here with backing from The Dap Kings – recording in the Daptone studios, with production from Kenny Dope!
