Pete Rock

80 Blocks Instrumentals

    Pete Rock, whose production work helped define the 90s “golden age,” is a rare exception; Rock’s one of the few musicians who made his name in the aggressively unflashy 90s East Coast sound and managed to stay continually relevant without capitulating to changing tastes. 80 Blocks from Tiffany's offered proof that amidst the expeditions rap music’s launching into new sonic territories like EDM, noisy psychedelia, and quasi-industrial music, the classic boom-bap stuff still has a place.

    Madcliff

    You Can Make The Change / What People Say About Love

    Madcliff recorded one album in 1977 from which come these two tracks for the first time on 7” single. Singer, Songwriter, Drummer, Bassist and Keyboardist Chris Hills wrote the songs and was integral to the group before joining Players Association. The killer cut is the funk bomb “You Can Make The Change” which was made popular by Keb Darge at his legendary deep funk nights and has been sought after ever since.

    STAFF COMMENTS

    Eddie Russ

    See The Light

      Keyboardist Eddie Russ hailed from Pittsburg and played with many of the greats including Sarah Vaughn, Benny Golson, Stan Getz and Dizzy Gillespie. Eddie is somewhat of an enigma, but he has always been held in high regard in the UK, and he finally was able to perform here in London at the Jazz café in the early 90’s a few years before his untimely demise. His debut album ‘Fresh Out’ was recorded for the Jazz Masters label and includes the jazz dance classic ‘The Lope Song’, he also contributed heavily to Sonny Stitt’s ‘Tornado’ album on that label. His band The Mixed Bag also made an album for the Detroit Tribe label. In 1976 he signed to John Richbourg’s Sound Stage 7 label and made two great jazz funk albums which were released on the Nashville’s Monument label and like his debut were produced by Bob Crawford. From this first album ‘See The Light’ the title track is a great take on the Earth Wind And Fire song, ‘Poko Nose’ is a great funky groove oriented track, but it is the magical ‘Zaius’ that has become an all time jazz funk classic, a track that has maintained its popularity over the past 40 years. The Monument albums include some great musicians including Marcus Belgrave and Larry Nozero, and on the “Take A Look At Yourself” album Motown’s Eddie Willis, a very young Kenny Garrett and the funk group Quazar.

      Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul

      Sir Joe Quarterman & Free Soul

        The Sir Joe Quarterman And The Free Soul album was originally released on the GSF label in 1973. It is a funk / rare groove masterpiece, one of the best ever of its genre, containing many great tracks with social commentary lyrics, fat bass lines, soaring horns and relentlessly funky beats. Also included in this Connoisseurs edition are the three non-album tracks that Joe recorded for GSF at the time, including the much sampled "I'm Gonna Get You" and "Thanks Dad".
