about

he Six Degree South's deep funk 45 anthem 'Loving You (Is To Far Out)' is commonly acknowledged as a masterpiece of its genre. Not just for the amazing drumming, the sultry female vocals, or the doom-laden horns - but because they pulled off what so many R&B groups of the early 70s tried (and failed) to do… they combined the sinister 'end-is-near' dark psychedelia of the late ‘60s, with the funkiness and dance floor punch of early ‘70s street funk - creating a weaponised hybrid brand of funk that sounds fresh and exiting where it's component parts can seem dated and tiresome.
To read Lois Black's lyric 'My hot pants are just a part of me' on paper suggests a cash-in novelty tune of the era, but contrasted with the stark and relentless funk of the backing track it becomes absolutely transportational! A nomadic group, spending most of the 70s playing one-nighters at military bases and residencies at ski lodges (!) with no real home-base - the band had previously been classed as impossible to locate. Funk DJs and collectors had been on their trail for over a decade when a chance phone call in 2009 found a member living in Atlanta. Which brings us to the legitimately licensed and uber-anticipated reissue of this genre-defining deep funk jewel, here at long last it's the Six Degree South!
