Superb and timeless NY jams - what can you say about Moonshine that hasn't already been said? - but I actually think Hilbilly song must be one of the most underrated songs of the era. Not sure if it's the speed that puts people off, but this is surely one of the most musical joints they ever worked on. Besides featuring a hell of a harmonic solo, how about the way those pads come in?

Moonshine is still a jam... it's timeless deep funk.

it is, is all I can say (ten words, sh..)

Excellent sampling of Gil Scott-Heron's live version of "Home Is Where The Hatred Is"...taken from the double LP "It's Your World".

Lordy. I've had this on my wish list for years and only JUST picked up a copy. Wow - what a blast, and what a classic. Urgent percussive midtempo house beats kick in from the start so the tune's a doddle to mix. Then there's the midway break into a cheery, bouncy, jazzy saxaphone break guaranteed to lift the spirits of the crowd. Strong bassline, enough flange / pitch bend / other effects variety to make it worthwhile playing to the end, and a sharp, incisive bar structure that makes it fun to cut with. A staple.

Now then! This is a sound that inspires deep feelings of nostalgia and summons up many, many old spirits. It was released at a time when the London underground scene was steadily gathering a good amount of patronage - especially from female of the species. Girls FM enjoyed a good run on the airwaves, Steve Jackson was the Kiss FM House Supremo, and the records shops, such as Unity (in Beak St, Soho W1) were selling the music as fast as it came in. Happy Days INDEED for London town.

Those were the days - I'd forgotten about Girls FM
