Swiftly becoming Hollywood's cinematic composer of choice, the Belfast-born wonder-DJ David Holmes dusts off his record box for this first release on his own 13 Amp label, Come Get It I Got It. Featuring a sublime selection of obscure R&B, soul and funk alongside Holmes' self-penned material (under the guise of Free Association), it's an intriguing and eclectic romp with some of the 1960s and 1970s greatest unsung heroes. More vital than his Essential Mix 98/01, Come Get It... kicks off with the gorgeous acid-tinged folk of Rodriguez's "Sugarman", before unleashing the raw soulful delights of Hodges, James, Smith & Crawford's "Nobody" and Betty Adams' fervent "Make It Real". Infectious experimental funk comes courtesy of the Johnny Otis Show's "Country Girl" and Cyril Neville's "Gossip" while Muddy Waters' masterfully delivers growling psychedelic blues on "Tom Cat". But the highlight has to be the absolutely hilarious, eccentric and bizarrely sexy cover of "Purple Haze" by Johnny Jones and The King Casuals, a favourite in Holmes' DJ set since he was 15, its camp genius is irresistible. Tied together with the sample-heavy retro-chic of Free Association, this is the soundtrack to one highly sexed, drug-fuelled, occasionally disturbed but genuinely joyous lifestyle. --Christopher Barrett

If you've ever heard a David Holmes DJ set and said "I wonder where I could get that record ?" then this is the album for you. Forget the trawling of second hand record shops as here they all are roughly packaged in Holmes inimitable twisted style. Opening with the melancholy and soulful Sugarman by Rodriguez, passing through a bluesy Muddy Water's rarity in Tom Cat and onto soul and funk from the likes of The Johnny Otis show, Cyril Neville, Ray Bryant and the Staple Sisters this a delightful journey from start to finish.
There is definitely a more mellow feel to this album than to the also excellent Bow Down to the Exit Sign. Distorted guitars are conspicuous by their absence and the basslines are funky rather than heavy.
A mix album you can listen to in the house without getting a headache.
Firstly, I'm almost inclined to throw 5 stars at this record straight away for opening with the fantastic "Sugarman" by the rarely heard and criminally ignored Sixto Rodriguez - who posses a voice that could only have come from America at a particular time during the 60's. It's beautiful, a great opener, and I love it.
After that, like many have said before me, there are some superb tunes on this record. Thank heavens Holmes spends so much time listen to such obscure vinyl - it sure does save us the hassle and the pickings are rich!
But whilst all of this is to be applauded, it's the gaps in between where the wheels begin to fall off this album. Just as I found with "Ocean's 11", Holmes' mixing skills really do leave a lot to be desired. He's talented for sure, but just when a particular record appears to be capturing a certain mood the flow that has been built up instantly grinds to a halt by the addition of the most inappropriate Holmes 'interlude' linking to the next song - and as a result a consistant vibe really struggles to emerge, which really does make it all the more frustrating - and, at worst, means you keep leaning for the skip forward button.
Overall, an enjoyable but flawed album. When Holmes learns to mix in a style that compliments the songs he's playing he'll be on a winner.
Delivery was also really quick.
The beauty of Holmes is that although the tracks here are as varied as i have described his desire to share and the supreme confidence he has in presenting the mix has almost created a whole new genre of music in its self, 'David Homes style music'. The fact that he has had the confidence to link these records with his own creations, under the guise of Free Association, further confirms this.
My one critique, its frustrating to be blown away by a record and then for it to end prematurely and be mixed to another, such is the nature of the 'mix' cd. I'll just have to go and discover the artists myself. Right, any Rodriquez compilations avaliable !?

This is the 'classic' album from David Holmes. It rocks, funks and grooves and is sublime listening. It's definitely recommended.Published on 7 May 2013 by Charlie
Holmes' album liner notes imply that the artist on track 14 might be called Jujus - but actually that is the name of the album from which it is sampled. Read morePublished on 13 Feb. 2012 by Barmee
not really worth a second listen, the tracks are badly mixed and painfully edited to a point where it becomes a total mess.Published on 19 Nov. 2010 by Darren Hindmarsh
A great collection of tracks that were too cool to have 'made it' - now compiled into a powerful critique of main stream music. Read morePublished on 23 April 2009 by Dr Dream
