Nik Weston presents Lost Soul & Funk Gems Volume One (7", Mukatsuku Records, 2014)

Nik Weston presents Lost Soul and Funk Gems Volume One

Vinyl is on the rise and some of the best trendsetters out there such as Nik Weston (Juno Records/Mukatsuku) are digging deep in their crates to reissue some nearly forgotten killer tunes on the much-cherished 7 inch format. This first volume in the 'Lost Soul & Funk Gems' series starts really good, with two masterpieces of Soul, a 1975 Marcia Shines tune on the A-side and a superb, gritty, heavy cover of 'You Keep Me Hanging On' by Jackie wilson on the flip. Recommended!

Juno Review :
Mukatsuku dig deep in the crates for the inaugural volume of their new Lost Soul & Funk Gems vinyl only series which casts it's net across the globe to uncover some lesser known nuggets. Leading the way is the under played boogie funk soul disco masterpiece, ''You Gotta Let Go '' from Australian songstress Marcia Hines, originally released on her 1975 album Marcia Shines on Wizard Records. It's super rare on a 45 and copies on separate Australian & Italian only 45's fetch several hundred pounds when you can find a copy. On the flip a lesser know soul masterpiece of the much covered anthem "You Keep Me From Hanging On'' from US legendary performer Jackie Wilson. Tingles down the spine aplenty as Jackie's superb vocals nail this bonafide classic underpinned by a great big band arrangement and backing vocals. As far as we know this is the first time this version has ever been available as a single in its' own right. Juno copies of this release come in special exclusive additional packaging not found elsewhere.Juno copies have a kraft paper inner sleeve,branded card 7 inch sleeve,sticker,hand signed insert and housed in a plastic protective 45
