When we are talking deepunk classics, there are a few top records that come to mind, Salt, Soul Heart Transplant, Carleen & The Groovers, Eddie Bo.. Here we have one of those top echelon soul/funk masterpieces. Recorded at the legendary True Soul studios in Little Rock, AR in 1971 by the Leaders and written by Donell Edwards. The Leaders B side was played in the Early 2000s by DJs like Keb Darge and Ian Wright, weirdly the vocal never quite touched the northern scene probably due to rarity or being too funky for the ears at the time. The is funk royalty though, rare as can be and an excellent 2 sider. Essential.

I listened to Greg Foat before and really liked his waterfall-like piano style in the Hampshire and Foat Albums. On this album you'll also get to hear nice lyrics and a mixture between folk and jazz as well as the can-like drumming from the Heliocentrics' drummer. Yeah! StrangeFlow

And another album by Greg Foat that is somewhere between dreamy and funky. It always hits the right spots and (also again) Malcolm Catto makes the tight grooves on drums. The track "Door into summer" can also be found on "The Dancers at the Edge of Time" as a different version. Superb Jazz StrangeFlow

Perhaps this is Hampshire & Foat's most sublime effort yet. For those not yet acquainted with their music, get moving. Some of the most warm, well-composed, and textural instrumental music being made. Makes complete sense that the duo is one part Warren Hampshire (The Bees, Band of Bees), one of my all time favorite bands. Lost Tribe Sound
