Acid Jazz/BGP (UK), 1994. New Copy 2CD ... $16.99 22.99
A hugely expanded version of this stone London classic from Mother Earth – presented as a 2CD set with a huge amount of extra material! The core album is the kind of record that should have crossed over big at a global level, had more folks been paying attention to the Brit funk scene at the time! The set's a bit more focused and song based than the group's debut – somewhat less cosmic, but no less righteous – with a sound that's steeped in 70s soul, funk, and underground rock – served up with feel that's almost a blue-eyed take on the Curtom groove, carried off with lots of rumbling bass and wah wah guitar! The vocals sound great – somewhere in a space between Jamiroquai and Paul Weller, but always a fair bit funkier – and the production is lean and clean, but never too rootsy to fall into crossover cliches of a few decades before. A really great step forward for the scene at the time – and a record that's been sadly lost between the genres for years. Titles include "Apple Green", "Time Of The Future", "Saturation 70", "Trip Down Brian Lane", "Jesse", and "Stardust Bubblegum". CD features 15 bonus tracks that include "Slide Sweet Baby", "Soul Sacrifice", "Find It", "Almost Grown", "Roadster", "Help Me Up", "Headf*ck", and "Warlocks Of Bakersfield CA" – plus some alternate takes of album tracks!
