About this item
Renowned jazz horseman Doc Severinsen hooves into view, dropping some superfly TNT funk on our asses here via the monstrous mid-tempo disco groovings of the AWB style "I Wanna Be With You". Slick bass work, subtle keys and hot horns vibe away, breaking into audacious guitar licks or the big chorus. The original 1976 promo 12" had the same track on both sides as promos often did back then but here we get a special version on the flip, a lovingly tweaked re-edit from the cult leader himself - DJ Harvey. Switching up the arrangement without getting lost in the loops, Harv takes us back to the hypnotic funk of Black Cock classic "Shine On'. Harv's edit has been around for a minute, but this version backing the OG 76 Disco mix makes this 12" a bonafide 'must grab' for all disco enthusiasts! Do not snooze. This one's a winner!
Patrick says: If the totally unstoppable groove of jazz-meets-funk banger "I Wanna Be With You" wasn't enough, Harvey's extended and recut version on the flip seals the deal here. Low slung jazz-funk with a big helping of disco attitude? Yes please!
