B.T. EXPRESS - ENERGY TO BURN
It's been a little while since i posted & myself & the Special Needs / Ghetto Disco team have been having a blast spinning with the Idjut Boys & Greg Wilson & partying hard!! So I thought I should drop by with some serious uptempo, soulful Disco ... Now ... back to the bloggin' :
This track is taken off Brooklyn Trucking Express's 1976 album of the same name & it's been a real favourite of mine since I discovered it around 5 years ago, for me personally it's one of those hairs on the back of your neck standing up records ... I mean it really is a stormer from beginning to end, it's got everything - killer drums, wailing brass, swooping strings & soaring vocals ... and don't forget the break! The break!
This was one of many records I picked up around the same period when I was digging for Soul & Funk records that had Jeff Lane & Randy Muller's name's on them - Brass Construction, Cameron, Garnett Mimms, Charles Earland, Funk DeLuxe, Enchantment, Eddie Kendricks, Aquarian Dream, Skyy & others. They all had the same high quality musicianship & production courtesy of Muller & Lane's "Dog's of war" production outfit ... some of these tracks still remain firm favourites for me today.
These days Randy Muller's career has been brought back into the limelight by Mr. Kenneth Gonzales aka DJ Kenny Dope who recently collaborated with Muller on the "Randy Muller's Best" mix album on Plaza Records. Instead of being just a straight mix CD K.Dope has gotten hold of the original master tapes & re-edited & remixed & mixed some classic joints Brooklyn style! Well worth checking if like me you dig your DJ mixes.
