This is a notorious classic from the 90’s Acid Jazz days, I heard it first in a club when Kevin Beadle came over to our Munich Into Somethin’ clubnight in ca. 1992/1993. Soon after it was featured on the iconic compilation “London Jazz Classics” that was done by Stuart Baker on his Soul Jazz Records label. Released on the 1972 self titled LP feat. Larnelle Harris the 45 seems to be unusually rare.
