On this eponymous disc, Coffey revisits his vast back catalogue with a range of contemporary guest artists, re-interpreting vintage material with varying degrees of success. All of the music is of a high standard, but some collaborative tracks work better than others. Standouts include Paolo Nutini’s sensitive re-working of Rodriguez’s Only Good for Conversation, Mayer Hawthorne’s decent rendition of Parliament’s All Your Goodies Are Gone, and the driving version of Funkadelic’s I Bet You featuring Mick Collins of The Dirtbombs and Rachel Nagy of The Detroit Cobras. Less compelling, but still credible, are the take of 100 Proof (Aged in Soul)’s Somebody’s Been Sleeping, featuring Lisa Kekaula of The Bellrays, and the version of Wilson Pickett’s Don’t Knock My Love featuring Fanny Franklin of LA’s Orgone.
As for Coffey himself, he really shines on the album’s instrumental tracks: opener 7th Galaxy is spacey psych-rock peppered by conga beats, while Plutonius, Knockabout and Space Traveller are deep wah-wah breakbeat grooves. Miss Millie, featuring Milwaukee’s Kings Go Forth, places bright horns and organ chops over Coffey’s distorted lead, and there is also a bonus dub of Don’t Knock My Love, thrown in for good measure. It sounds like all involved had fun putting this one together, and the listening experience is a pretty fun one too.
