Cut Loose!

Tonight is disco night, and here to get you in the mood is Tapper Zukie with his one and only disco masterpiece, 'Freak'.

Tim Spinner and Woebot, two old friends who I haven't seen in a very long time, provided most of the tunes on CDs and tapes they've made me over the years so thanks to them for making this selection possible.

And here's the track list:

1. Sing Sing - Gaz
2. Marvellous - The Jungle Band
3. Life On Mars - Dexter Wansell
4. Over & Over - Material
5. The Razor''s Edge - Defunkt
6. Stellar Fungk - Slave
7. Funky Monkey - Mandrill
8. Shake Your Body Down - Ruddy Thomas & Welton Irie
9. Cut Loose - Bohannon

Hope you enjoy.

Oak Sounds

I thought I'd do a few selections from some of my favourite labels.

First up is Oak Sound, best known for putting out 'Five Man Army' which has to be one of the best deejay tracks of the eighties, but also home to a small but select collection of some of the decade's finest roots tunes.

Oak Sounds

1. Five Man Army - Dillinger, Trinity, Wayne Wade, Al Campbell & Junior Tamlin
2. Man In Love - Echo Minott
3. Three Man Connection - Al Campbell, Dillinger & Trinity
4. Mr Officer - Wayne Blackstock
5. When Music Hits You - Diana
6. University - Paula Clarke
7. Top Of The Pops - Captain Sinbad
8. Open Book - Barrington Levy


More soon, possibly Negus Roots - I feel I owe you something good.
