STRANGE BREAKS & MR THING 3
STRANGE BREAKS & MR THING 3
Price: £12.06

5.0 out of 5 stars Attractive mix, 25 May 2014
After a couple of years, finally a new instalment of the Strange Breaks & Mr Thing. CD 1 is a very attractive mix of mostly unknown funk, rock, jazz, soul and funk gems. The mixing is flawless and smooth, as far as that's possible with breaks from the pre-drum computer era. CD 2 is filled with the tracks used in the mix on cd 1, and therefore a nice addition for DJs or people who want their funk uncut. Crate diggers would love the collection, but anyone who likes 70s funky tunes will be pleasantly surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good collection, 4 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
Nice collection of go go tracks by Rare Essence. As is go go, Rare Essence is a highly underestimated band, outside of Washington DC. With a career over 30 years now, is still is strange go go never cuaght up with the rest of the world (expect maybe for a short while in the UK during the early eighties). Although go go , and Rare Essence, should be experienced live (check one of their cranking live cd's), this collection gives a very nice overview of their work. Tracks like Body Moves, Work the Walls and my favorite: Lock It, keep you grooving. Their version of Holy Ghost by the Bar Kays, is a gem (despite the original is difficult to match). I only wish they played Holy Ghots for 10 minutes more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly Good Times, 12 Aug 2011
This review is from: Good Times Australia (Audio CD)
Haven't missed any of the earlier Good Times cd's, so I could not let this one pass by. Both cd's are very fine: cd 1 is the usual very good selection of, mostly, older soul/funk/disco tunes; while cd 2 is a refreshing mix of more recent house oriented tracks. The cd's make a nice couple, but they can also be enjoyed seperatly on different occaisions and/or moods. Don't forget to check out the 30th anniversary cd of Norman Jay (2011).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection, 22 Mar 2011
This review is from: Soul Survivors 2 (Audio CD)
A very fine, or even excellent, collection of well known and also lesser known soul/early disco/funk and northern soul gems. The variety and quality of the two cd's makes it a pleasure to listen, although I admitt I already got most tracks scattered over many other cd's. A must have for any party, long car trip and mobile dj. Again, a great collection. Don't forget to check volume 1.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great re-edits, 1 July 2010
Dimitri from Paris is a well known disco lover. So, this cd is no expection. The cd is fully devoted to the orchestral disco sound of Philidelphia in the 70s. CD 1 is filled with the originals, some well known, but also the less obvious tracks. CD 2 is the real reason for this purchase. Great re-edits of the originals. Esxpecially the re-edits of "The love I lost" and "You can't hide from yourself", have been reworked to epic tracks. The only down side is, I expected - considering the title of the cd - to find - first time on cd (?)- Instant Funk's "Get down with the philly jump", but ... it's not there..
