Liner Notes, Credits, Other Details
Sharon Jones and Lee Fields - This Land Is Our Land (Woody Guthrie)
With the presidential election in mind Sharon Jones and the Daptone crew turned this protest song into a funk nugget. Woody Guthrie has never sounded this funky.
The Rebirth - Evil Vibrations (Mighty Ryeders)
Like a modern Earth Wind & Fire or Roy Ayers, this LA septet’s sound is an organic blend of new and traditional soul, hip-hop, jazz, and funk. De La Soul sampled the original track for “A Roller Skating Jam Called Saturday”.
Willis – Word Up! (Cameo)
“Word Up” was the “Hey Ya” of its day but Willis’ slow, sensual folk-meets-soul-meets-country style reminds one of what Clapton did to “Layla” when he unplugged it.
Nostalgia 77 - 7 Nation Army (The White Stripes)
“Seven Nation Army” features Nostalgia 77’s Tru Thoughts label mate Alice Russell and is a massive track -- check those horns!
Orgone - Funky Nassau (Beginning Of The End)
Taking on a very well-known song can be difficult but LA funkateers Orgone nail “Funky Nassau”, adding an Afro-beat twist and female vocal.
SA-RA Creative Partners - Just Like A Baby (Sly and The Family Stone)
This LA act chose an obscure album cut to cover. It’s from Sly’s There’s A Riot Goin’ On, which, despite packing the hit “Family Affair”, saw Sly in a darker mood dealing with drug issues and the tumultuous state of the USA in 1971.
Platinum Pied Pipers - The Look of Love (Burt Bacharach)
This dynamic two-man musical duo from Detroit gives this Bacharach classic a futuristic hip-hop twist.
Nicole Kramer - Help Me (Joni Mitchell)
Vocalist Nicole Kramer and music man Domu’s tasty rendition of this Court and Spark classic moves it into territory not too far from the likes of Zero 7.
Yam Who? - The Star of A Story (Heatwave)
This sophisticated London beatsmith crew have created memorable remixes of late for Rainer Truby, Dwele, and Ampfiddler, but their cover of Heatwave’s 1978 down tempo disco-soul classic (sampled by Tribe Called Quest) is their first track made completely from scratch.
John Beltran & Detroit Latin All-Stars - Vente Conmigo (Fania All Stars)
John Beltran brings John Arnold in on guitar and Jeremy Ellis on piano and this Detroit trio let fly in a Latin Jazz dance floor filling style.
Shawn Lee - River Man (Nick Drake)
Breaks n’ beats guru and multi-instrumentalist Shawn Lee has played and recorded with artists as diverse as Coldcut, Leeann Rhimes, Martina Mcbride, UNKLE, Tony Joe White, The Dust Brothers, St. Etienne, Jeff Buckley, Bomb the Bass, The Spice Girls, and Natasha Atlas, and this Drake cover is truly unique.
As One - I Love You (Weldone Irvine)
It starts as a sweet soul tune and then moves into deep As One territory with spacey keys, cinematic strings and an all out synth-fest.
