Nik Weston presents Lost Soul & Funk Gems Volume Four (7", Mukatsuku, 2015)



Extracted from the 1976 album 'Don't You Think It's Time', Courtial's 'Losing You', with bay area vocalist Errol Knowles (perhaps better known for his work on the Azteca albums or Coke Ecovedo's 'I Would Not Change A Thing'), marks the start of the jazz-funk era. A soulful shuffler for warm jazz dancefloors, previously featured on Keb Darge's 'Legendary Deep Funk Volume 3' (BBE, 1999) and on Andrew Jervis 'California Soul' (Luv'N'Haight, 2003) compilations. On the b-side, Sounds Of The City Experience with the blaxploitation-esque instrumental 'Getting Down', taken from the group's self-titled album released on Tiger Lily Records in 1976 and reissued on Jazzman Records in 2013. And another 45 that's gonna stay for a long time in the DJ bag…

Press Release :
Weston's curatorial crusade continues as he unearths more criminally overlooked/under-pressed rarities from the golden ages; "Losing You" comes from Courtial and Errol Knowles outstanding 1976 soul jazz album. The most straight up soul joint from the album, it's an instant sweat-fest with real guts behind both the vocals and instrumentation. Flip for the jazz funk whirlwind that is "Getting Down". Taken from their eponymous, once-super rare ($1500 per copy rare) album (also released in 76), it's an instrumental hurricane led by strings, horns and bombastically swung drums. Powerful. DJ Support from Snowboy, Dom Servini, Pete Jelly Jazz, Flea Market Funk, ParisDJs.com, Marc Hype, Nicola Conte, Volcov and more.
