Note: The links above just go to Big Blacks pages as this release isn’t listed on any of them. Both tunes come off his ‘71 album Diggin’ What You’re Doing (which I would love to get my hands on btw). My favorite is the B-side, Long Hair, (of course.. as that one’s not on the tube) which is more of a Bayou-Funk tune in the vein of Dr. John and such.
Note: The B-side is the “famous” one on this very nice ‘78 release as it was featured on the 45 Kings II: Fat & Funky compilation. And yes it’s the funkier of the two, but I quite like the A-side as well, maybe even more so, but of course that one isn’t on the tube. Funky Jungle is though..
Note: Joseph Henry 7” from the late and great Descolabel. One of the founders later on, after the demise of Desco, founded Daptone, while the other half started up Soul Fire and later on Truth & Soul. Some great stuff to be found on all four of those labels. I got a couple more Desco 7”s for y’all later on as well.
Note: German only press of this 7” (also available as a 12” as far as I can tell). Another one that seems somewhat expensive to get your hands on nowdays, and again, I had no idea. B-side is called Gothic Futurism (Crazy Sneaker Dub). Rammellzee (RIP) was a crazy graff writer as well as a musician, he was in Wild Style and had a song in Style Wars among other things.
Note: The Discogs link just goes to Mr. Ellis page on there as this 7” isn’t listed anywhere. It seems it’s quite pricey if you wanna get your hands on it though. I had no idea, this posting thing has it’s benefits.
