Catch Action: The Sophisticated Boogie Funk of Sheridan House Records (2CD/6LP, Luv'N'Haight, 2014)



Between the late 70s and the mid-80s, a Los-Angeles based label named Sheridan House was releasing slabs of modern soul, boogie & funk on (now rare) wax. DJ Shane "Sureshot" Hunt has compiled his favourite 27 tunes from that catalog for a 2-CD or 6x12" boxset anthology on Ubiquity/Luv N' Haight Records. Most of the songs were recorded at Ray Charles's home studio in L.A. with Ray engineering. Kool and the Gang were session musicians as well as the Jazz Crusaders, who were childhood friends of the label's founder, Kent Harris. A superb selection of modern soul really more leaning towards funk, synth-funk & boogie rather than disco - essential for DJ's spinning at disco and boogie funk nights! The boxset version seems particularly tasty, including 6 tunes previously unreleased on vinyl (tracks 21 to 26 on the digital version)...
