Jon Appleton & Don Cherry —
Don/Jon ... 7-inch Cacophonic (UK), 1970. New Copy (pic cover)...
Never-heard work from the legendary team of Jon Appleton and Don Cherry – music that was recorded for the Human Music album the pair issued on Flying Dutchman – but issued here for the first time ever! The sounds here have that amazing mix of electronic and organic elements you'll know from the famous full album – oddly-shaped notes from Cherry on pocket trumpet, mixed with unusual textures and tones from Appleton on analogue electronics – very thoughtfully combined in an amazing way! 7-inch, Vinyl record
Two slices of heavy funk from this mighty German group – issued here on a super-sweet 7" single! "I Give You Everything You Want" has fast-riffing guitars that are totally great, and this romping, rumbling bassline that's much more Cali funk than you'd guess from the group's overseas origins! "Why Don't You Stop Bugging Me" is maybe more full on psychedelic – lots of weird, wigging guitar and brash vocals – but a nonstop bassline that really keeps the whole thing moving forward! 7-inch, Vinyl record
A magnificent track from legendary Detroit producer Dave Hamilton – a gem that lie tucked away in his vaults for many years, but which has gone onto hit great fame, thanks to a recent CD issue! This 45 marks the first-ever single release of the track – a sublime slow stepper that mixes excellent vibes with the sublime vocals of Little Ann! The flipside is equally mellow – this great slow-burner from the Turnarounds, who hit wonderful late nite harmony modes over organ lines on "Stay Away". 7-inch, Vinyl record
The title's a reference to a once-famous ad campaign, but the groove is pure funky soul all the way through – from the sweet break that starts the single, to the soaring lead vocals that really make the whole thing wonderful! The tune may well be one of the best 45s we've ever heard reissued from Numero – and it's backed by the even bolder, funkier "Master Plan Intro". 7-inch, Vinyl record
