I'm a sucker for a classic breakbeat, but more so I'm a super sucker for a disco break on 12" vinyl. I love the fact that many disco records from the 70s featured extended versions of songs and very often with an additional breakdown compared to the album or 7" single version. Although it can be confusing sometimes as to which version you need to hunt down to obtain the break part, but in the majority o0f cases it is the 12" version you need to find. Very often these were promotional only records handed out to disc jocks, and were not available commercially. Hence these can be a bitch to find, and despite the fact that I'm out diggin' on the regular, there are few of these disco bangers that have eluded me for years. In instances like this, I have to accept that the only way I'm gonna find these gems is on the internet, with my hand deep in my pocket. Not the way I like to do things, as I like to get my hands dirty and find these for cheap. But realistically I know I ain't gonna find some of these in the bargain bins.
One such example is PAT LUNDY's "Work Song" - a stonker of a old school break which appears on PYRAMID RECORDS. Last week I finally struck an online deal with someone in Brooklyn who shall remain anonymous, but I have to give thanks as he hooked me up with a nice copy at an even nicer price, and sent it across the pond pronto. You know who you are, so a big thanks for making an old school fool very happy. Now let's bang "work song" and see if you can keep your feet still....
NICE. That's a gem.
yes indeed Nappa, been a major "want" of mine for years.
Now all I need is a double!
Dope Rhodes, dope beats, great voice. Cheers.
