Cali funk revivalists The Incredible Say Whats! pay tribute to a rare late 60s treasure by Leon Haywood's group The Soul Machine – covering both sides of funky 45 from 1968! Each demonstrates real love for the original versions, ably replicating the vibe, without mimicking it – a tricky thing to pull off, but the fresh funky life breathed into these too little heard gems is, well. . .kinda incredible! "Twitchie Feet" is built around a stable, funky drummer and wicked guitar and bass sound, nicely cooking organ and really great use of a solid horn section – that latter element may be even a bit more prominent than the version that inspired it! "Bag Of Goodies" is, natch, another goodie – again with some great use of jazz funk organs, guitar and horns. Recorded in San Francisco with vintage mic & amps, giving it the wholly classic vibe the group was shooting for. Direct hit! (Limited to 500 copies.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

The label's got the look of an old Tico Records release from the 60s – and the music follows suit in a very similar way! "El Ritmo De Nueva York" takes us back to the fierce Latin grooves of the Joe Cuba Sextet of the 60s – with an especially great timbales breakdown in the ... 7-inch, Vinyl record

Groovy jazz funk from Cortex on a funky 45! "8 Octobre 1971" has one of the most wicked bass lines we've ever heard from Cortex, with some funky drums, spacey keys and dreamy female vocals. "Devil's Dance" also has a great bassline, with piano out front in the mix and a more ... 7-inch, Vinyl record
