One of the rarest, most shit kicking Deepfunk 45s never to have been in your box, but that is about to change.
You will never find an original of this record; it's never been on ebay, I have not heard of a copy changing hands in the last 14 years. The last and possibly only copy was in 2000, It came from Gabe Roth of Daptone Records fame, Through Jeff Silvermans (Truth and Soul Records) and finally to Monster U.K collector Ian Wright who has kept it tucked away ever since.
I called Ian Wright and he informed me that in the 14 he owned it it had not occurred to him to check the flipside which turns out is pretty bad ass sisterfunk cover of Sam and Dave's 'Hold On, I'm Comin'.
As for Monica, nothing is known about her, I suspect due to the sexy word play the record may have been sold at gigs rather then distributed but can only guess.
Greg Foat has those moments when heart, colour, emotion, silence and sound are just in complete alignment.
That kind of harmony always hits home for me as it just creates a super warm and loving vibration.
Antonio’s Theme for example creates such a moment for me.
Funny enough I was just listening to the Honey Bear when I stumbled over this record. Talking about synchronicity. Thank you. Vikrant Kumar Thomas Junk
