    Diddy Wah: Come On Back Jack
    Nina Simone - Come On Back Jack

    mp3: Nina Simone - Come On Back Jack

    Nina Simone's brilliant answer record to Hit The Road Jack, that's about all you need to know about today's offering. Come On Back Jack was released in 1961 on the Colpix label. Mine's a Swedish pressing on beautiful blue vinyl.
    Disco Vinyl: WEEK END by CLASS ACTION "tonight it's party time, it's party time tonight"
    Week End by Class Action is an example of how the remake is better then the original.  Now I know a lot of DJ's that would dispute this but I have a strong feeling they are all about five years or more older then me.  You see in 1978 when the Phreek version was out I was too young to go out clubbing.


    But by 1983 when the Class Action version was out I was not only out I was out practically every night.  And I certainly was hoping to find a friend to spend at least a few minutes...


    It's not like Christine Wiltshire should complain she's the voice on both versions.  In my zip I also include a Larry Levan remix and a more revamped version by the illustrious John Morales who used to mix as part of the fabulous M & M mix with the late Sergio Munzibai.
    your weekend zip


    I might add that the Class Action version was much bigger on the dance charts but I know most people don't judge success or quality by charts.

    Anyway I ask you to always click on my ads to show your appreciation for my disco vinyl blog.  If I begin to see an increase in clicks I will also write more posts.  Eventually those pennies google gives do add up.


    Diddy Wah: Bacardi!
    Ralph Marterie - Bacardi

    mp3: Ralph Marterie - Bacardi

    Trumpet player and band leader Ralph Marterie give us his take on The Champs' Tequila with today's selection. His spirit of choice is one produced on an island just to the east of Mexico. Bacardi was released in 1961 and has been enjoyed in moderation ever since.

    musicometro: Escutem e descarreguem “The Liquid Amber EP” de DJ Shadow

    Liquid Amber é o nome que DJ Shadow escolheu para a sua nova editora e foi também o título escolhido para o seu primeiro lançamento com esse selo, “The Liquid Amber EP”.

    Este trabalho conta com uma remistura de Machinedrum e está disponível para audição (em baixo) e download gratuito. Para isso, basta ter conta no Soundcloud, abrir esta ligação e seguir as instruções.

    As palavras do próprio DJ Shadow:
    “I’m pleased to announce The Liquid Amber EP. This single/EP serves as the opening salvo in what I hope is a long string of music, by myself and others, on my new imprint: Liquid Amber. There’s two new songs, ‘Ghost Town’ and ‘Mob,’ and a nifty remix of ‘Six Days’ by Machinedrum.
    ‘Ghost Town’ is an ambitious ride through many of the micro-genres within the Future Bass umbrella that have inspired me recently, while ‘Mob’ is an intentionally stripped-down, Cali-certified head-nodder. Both songs were written, programmed, and mixed by myself, and they represent the forward steps I feel I’ve taken as an engineer. The ‘Six Days’ remix was something I asked Machinedrum to knock out as a tour weapon, and he crushed it (naturally), so I felt it deserved a proper release.
    I’m excited about this music and the new imprint, and I really appreciate everyone’s time and consideration.”

    Funk My Soul: Odyssey – 1980 – Hang Together

      Rip and Research by Mr.Moo Posting and additional info’s by Nikos  A wicked groover from Odyssey – and a crack little album that has the trio hitting hard all the way through! The upbeat numbers are great, the ballads are warm and wonderful, and even the midtempo numbers come off perfectly – all with a rich quality that makes the album a real standout in mainstream soul at the time! There’s a few playful post-disco touches on the dancefloor tracks, yet the vibe is all soul all the way through – and the female vocals really soar with this righteous energy that has the group sounding better than ever.    Review By Derek Anderson  Not only was Odyssey’s 1977 eponymous debut album Odyssey, the group’s most successful album, it featured their biggest hit single, Native New Yorker. This was a song that would forever become synonymous with Odyssey, reaching number twelve in the …

    Another Night on Earth: Paqua - Akaliko
    Paul 'Mudd' Murphy's Claremont 56 is such a class act, equally forward as it is backward looking, equally referential as it is original, and equally eclectic as it is precisely modern and sleek. It's a veritable haven for aging ravers, diggers and trainspotters, surfers and travellers, Harvey fans, bikers, Balearic dreamers, sunset aficionados and beards. The box set of tracks from their seminal 'Originals' series is one of the most exciting and desireable vinyl collections of overlooked gems in recent years, or ever... and it's a perfect example of the label's meticulous approach to substance and quality. The label is also, as i'm sure most of you already know, home to a host of exceptional music makers that include Bison, Alumnia, Torn Sail, Paqua and even a recent Hulger Czukay project... amongst others. But ok, this post isn't really about Claremont 56, instead it's about the first full length from Paqua entitled 'Akaliko', a Budhist word that means 'timeless', released on the label some weeks back. Being well late on this review has given me time to really live with the record, to hear it in a number of situations and settings and i can honestly say it's a classic in every sense of the word.

    For those that don't already know, Paqua is a cross continental collaboration between Paul Murphy (Akwaaba, Mudd, Bison, Claremont 56), Phenomenal Handclap Band's Quine Luke (aka Bing Ji Ling), Alex Searle, Groove Armada's percussionist Patrick Dawes and Patrick Wood, also from the Phenomenal Handclap Band. Joining them on a few of the albums tracks also is celloist Robin Lee, one half of Faze Action. That's practically some kind of underground supergroup right there... and the album is a testament to the combined talents present on the record.

    'Akaliko' is a beast of a thing! 8 superb tracks that remind one of any number of Adult Oriented West Coast Yacht Rock golden moments from back in yer mum's day, familiar...  and yet fresh with the ocean spray of recent summers on the Dalmation coast. You could say it's the revivified sound of The Hollies Folk Disco on 'Draggin' My Heels' meets The Doors, CSN, Brian Auger, Batteaux... only it's made by young men who've undoubtedly lived through Acid House, Madchester and Balearica. The beats are funky and modern, the crisp and free jangle of their guitars reverberate with the sound of heady holidays on exotic shores, and with hot spots of psychedelic shimmering beauty liberally scattered about, 'Akaliko' is far less than a sum of it's inspirations and far more the fresh beginings of a well travelled, savvy, attuned and cosmically inclined crew. Everything about this album is deeply pleasing and as such is essential to own.


    A limited edition 10" called 'The Dubs' also hit the stores a couple of weeks after the album came out. Ray Mang and the Idjut Boys take on 'The Visitor', my current favourite track from the LP, and both deliver extra warm and now also essential beauties. The Idjut's version just barely takes first prize with it's dubbed out extended play, a bit like staring at the sun.


    Get either or both records here and here, or hunt them down in your favourite spot. Oh and keep a look out for a further remix double pack with Emperor Machine versions of 'Late Train'
