If this shit don’t make you move your ass, your thing is broke. Seriously. Here’s some jams you all should be rocking on the regular. I am! Every so often I sweep through the old iTunes library and survey my listening habits to see what’s what. These cuts have risen up recently and need to be passed on.
Harvey Scales – Dancing Room Only
This is mostly know because of the Beastie Boy’s use of the drums for Shake Your Rump, but hot DAMN this cut is nice none the less. I actually don’t know too much about Harvey (home town of Milwaukee! ah hem! thanks Wiki), but that doesn’t matter. It’s still funky. Do It Girls do your thing.
The Notations – Superpeople
Very remminicent of Mr. Mayfield, so much so that I thought it was Curtis when I first heard it. Another Midwest connection (Chicago), The Notations didn’t do too much from what I know. I do know it’s funky, and I’m feeling it. Anyone got more info on these cats?
Bernard Wright – Master Rocket
Bernard is the dude. This cut in particular has always been a favorite of mine. I used to play that Zhigge cut all the time (see below) and didn’t even know I had this record. The cover is deceiving, and does not elude to the funky gems therein. This is crazy nice for 81, and not to hard to find on wax.
Sounds Good With
Zhigge – Harlem
