When these guys dig, they dig deep – so much so that they always come up with amazing tunes we've never even heard of before! This time around, the music is all sound library gems from the Standard Music company – a French company (despite the righteous African American-styled cover) started at the end of the 60s, and dedicated to some especially funky work that rivals, if not betters, sound library gems from companies like KPM or DeWolfe
at the time! And while a few famous names worked for Standard – like Alan Parker, Tony Visconti, and Brian Eno – the work here is mostly by really obscure composers and artists, folks we've never heard of before, but who we're totally digging now! Lots of heavy drums, jazzy riffs, and an overall sound that's in the best early 70s funky soundtrack mode – or in the stone Dusty Fingers style – a treasure trove of 23 tracks that have already made our lives a heck of a lot brighter! Nearly all instrumentals, but with a few soul-based vocal tracks – and titles include "Viva" by Max Middleton, "Dad's Perengrinator" and "Good Articulation" by Midas Touch, "Your Dada Was A Good Cop" by Janette Mason, "Oats & Barley" by Threshold, "Bowl Of Soul" by Tom Watt, "Crushed Ice" by Zbigniew Gorny, "Whiskey Sour" by Janusz Poplaswki, "Bidin Times" by Max Middleton, "Forge Ahead Vocal" by Graham Lyons, "Foxy Lady" by Laurie Holloway, "Funky Soul Thing" by Ken Woodman, and "Planter's Punch" by Zbigniew Gorny.
