About this item

Crusaders' flautist and all round gee, Hubert Laws spent a career doing his thang at the groovier end of the musical spectrum. Early jazz dance moves soon gave way for a funk preoccupation and by 1980 our main man had devoured disco and come up with a post disco, pre boogie club soul classic stacked full of funk. That masterpiece is "Family", a unstoppable groove monster driven by punchy bass, punctuated by blaring brass and topped with a stunning vocal from sister Eloise Laws and of course some flute from Hubert. A favourite of the likes of Sadar Bahar, Mr Scruff and The Beatnuts, you'll be hearing this one a lot come summertime. With original 12" copies of this badboy pushing the £150 mark, it's a much welcomed official, remastered reissue.

STAFF COMMENTS
