Chuck Womack - Ham Hocks and Beans
(limited edition 12", 1000 copies) Dis-Joint Records DJ12008, 2006-12-02

Review :
Hard to find 12 inch but you gotta kee on looking cos' that's some heavy piece of rare breakbeatin' funk we're talking about here! Quantic speeds thing up adding his usual b-boy shit for maximum deep funk dancefloor action, while the original keeps its vintage cool and soulful funk vibe flowing for more than 5 minutes, with yeaaah-hhummmm-allllright breaks all along. (Djouls)

Tracklisting :
A1. Ham Hocks and Beans (Quantic Remix)
B1. Ham Hocks and Beans (parts 1&2)

Info :
"Chuck Womacks luscious funk grooves get the midas touch from Britain favourite soul brother Will Quantic. All the Quantic hallmarks are thrown into the mix including pin point heavy drums extended b line breaks and a dance floor savvy tempo rejig. The original parts are also included for you purists. BIG TUNE!" Fat City Record Shop

"Will from Quantic works his usual magic again working this classic original into a dancefloor destroying stomper. The original is also included so the quality of the rework can be truly appreciated. Limited to 1000 copies, hand stamped pressing, certainly not to be missed!!!" Phonica Record Shop

Original version press release :
Chuck Womack’s “Ham Hocks and Beans” is as incredibly funky as it is rare. It’s so rare in fact, that some the most hardcore of funk 45 collectors in the world had not even heard of the track when pressed about it. The track made it’s way to Dis-Joint via our friend and fellow soul aficionado Justin Torres, who found the original acetate at one of his usual flea market outings. Upon listening to it, none of us could believe what he had stumbled upon. It’s like a version of King Curtis’ funk classic “Memphis Soul Stew,” but with heavier drums and much funkier bass. Because of it’s obscurity and undeniable quality, we were convinced that the track was unreleased. Not so, according to Chuck Womack himself, now a resident of Arizona. It was released around 1971, but in very limited numbers. He is happy to see his funky gem see the light again some thirty plus years later, and we at Dis-Joint are happy to share it with the rest of the world.
