About this item
t's coming out on Best Italy, so you know you're in for a rarified treat from the dusty archives of pan European music. On this occasion the unstoppable reissue label has its disco hat on, serving up the "raw cosmic funk" of Oro, recorded in Naples and originally released in 1977. Back then, this crucial cut was confined to a short 7" edit, but Best have pulled the stops out to track down the master tapes and execute a thorough remastering job on the full-length versions, now pressed to 12" for your long-playing, disc-spinning pleasure. It's a good thing these tracks came back into circulation - they capture the best of the late 70s era in a cool, downright funky style that never gets old.
Patrick says: Finally the inevitable has happened - Best Record's unstoppable reissue journey through Italy's underground has reached Oro's "Stop The War", the 1977 45 which has been my top secret weapon for the past five years. Outrageously funky, way wonky and kind of cosmic, this underground hit has packed dance floors wherever I've played it, so make sure you grab a copy.
