Trax feat. Aretha Franklin, Dr. Buzzard Original Savannah Band, Chamleon and Jay Williams



Day dreaming  –  Aretha Franklin (Her own composition – that’s why the call her ‘The Queen of Soul’ … Jocelyn Brown also did a Reggae version)

The Seven Year Itch  –  Dr. Buzzard Original Savannah Band (Stony Browder, August Darnell, Cory Daye, Andy Hernandez aka Coati Mundi Mickey Seville and not forgetting their ever present dog Mr. Limelight made up this band)

Get up  –  Chameleon (One off album on Elektra Records … produced by Fred Wesley – James Brown’s former first lieutenant)

Sweat  –  Jay Williams (Jay shows us that ‘there’s is a message in his music’ – he highlighted the in-equality and the ill-treatment of black people in South Africa … released on the then independent and iconic Big Beat Records)

Trax feat. Gloria Scott, Gino Soccio, The Strikers and 250 LBS of Blue



Love me, love me, love me or leave me, leave me, leave me  –  Gloria Scott (Produced by Barry White –  released by the new up & coming Casablanca Records but was extremely over-shadowed as Barry career exploded as he transformed from producer to artist)

Les Visiteurs/The Visitors  –  Gino Soccio (Canadian  Gino first came to prominence via the iconic Kebekeletrik (Quebec Electric) studio group … from his first solo album ‘Outline’ – released by Celebration/Quality Records in Canada and RFC/Warner Brothers for the rest of the world)

Strike it up  –  The Strikers (Five to ten years earlier this trak would have been classed as ‘Slow Burning Funk’ – now its ‘Slow Burning Boogie’ due to musical technology … gravely overlooked for other more familiar cuts from their only album)

Rejoice  –  250Lbs of Blue featuring Elizabeth Mourdant (Written, produced, arranged. programmed. conceived and performed by Bluejean … remixed by Dj Spen also known as Sean Spencer – released by Eightball Records)

Trax feat. Vanessa Freeman, Penny McClean, Calender and Alton Miller



Hang tight  –  Vanessa Freeman (From one of my favourite U.K. record label – ChilliFunk Records comes Vanessa … co-written by the lady herself and ‘Mr. Restless Soul’ Phil Asher)

Lady Bump  –  Penny McClean (As one of the original session singers of studio group – Silver Convention, Penny made albums by the same writers/producers of said group … this extended mix turned up on a Unidisc Records compilation)

Hypertension  –  Calender (The days when a Funk band consisted of seven members and more – to get  their sound just right … written and produced by Paul L. Kyser who later produced that superb Boogie band Rhyze)

Find a way  –  Alton Miller (Inspired by Djs Frankie Knuckles, Larry Levan, Ron Hardy & Timmy Regisford also musically Stevie Wonder, Parliament & the ‘Philly Sound’ – Alton proceeded to craft his art … for further info Alton Miller .com)
