A wealth of rare early work from the UK's Speedometer
– tunes that were initially pressed up only as limited edition singles on labels like Timmion, Soul Fire, and Kennel Klub – all brought together here for the first time on CD, along with a few previously unissued numbers! Speedometer
have definitely been one of the heaviest funk combos going on the other side of the Atlantic for a number of years – a Meters-influenced group with plenty of bass and scratchy guitar at the bottom of their tunes – but also a great talent for blasting the horns way way over the top, and changing up the rhythms with a tightness that few other combos can match! The whole CD's a delight all the way through – and is just about the only way you'll find these tracks anymore. Titles include "Soul Safari", "Speedometer
(parts 1 & 2)", "Descarga D'Escargot", "It's My Thing", "Two Beat Beast", "Upstairs At Boston Road", "Up The Down", "Ain't Going To Thursford (parts 1 & 2)", "Hold The Bus", "Time For Change", and "Accra International Airport".
