'We've Got The Power / Evil'. Genre defying female family vocal group during a critically and commercially successful career took in country, jazz, blues, soul and funk to pop, disco, dance, electronic music and rock.
Pittsburgh Track Authority return with a new single-sided limited edition edits record on the imprint that bears only their own logo.
"I Always Wanted To Be In A Band" kicks things off in an early 70s soul jazz style, with infectious vocals and catchy horns doing the damage. Next, a flute driven cover of the dance classic "Lowdown" keeps the disco-funk vibes of the original but with added springtime/summer vibes. Both of these have done damage for PTA at their gigs, and now they can do damage for you at yours.
Over 3 decades after 'Rhythm Of Life', Mason rediscovered tapes w/more recordings from same late 70s period. 'The Dance Of Life' (Bernard Purdie - drums / Fonda Rae - backing vocals) & 'Up Jump' are 1st 2 tracks from 'Recollection Echo' LP.
Their first single in 23 years. The song is based on an old Chic demo called "Love Somebody Today", which features all of the original members of the band. Also f/ "Back In The Old School" + instrumentals of both.
Compilation curated by Parisian crate digger Vidal Benjamin. Tracks by Laurie Destal, New Paradise, Stephane, Club Prive, Pilooski's edit of Patrice Mondon, Marie Chaptal, Nicolas Skorsky, Ark, Marc Chantereau, Christopher Laurent & more.
