Freaky Funk Edits Vol.1 - Just Can't Give You Up
(12") Bootleg, 2006-12-25

Tracklisting :
A1. Mystic Merlin - Just Can't Give You Up (Freaky Funk Boys re-edit)
B1. Little Beaver - Party Down (Freaky Funk Boys re-edit)

Press Release :
The mysterious Freaky Funk boys have been locked away for a while now. Some say Harlem, others think the East Midlands. The boys have been busy digging through the crates to deliver a series of disco/funk bombs, re-edited in fine style and destined to shake up any party. They start off with 80's disco funk boys Mystic Merlin. Originally called Mystic Merlin?s Magic Band, they started off their musical careers by incorporating magic into their live shows before being taken seriously on the soul/funk scene. The Freaky Funk boys re-edit in fine style "Just Can't Give You Up" which was originally released on Capitol in 1980 and was also a top 20 hit the same year! On the flip they deliver "Party Down", a block party funk nugget destined to make train spotters everywhere foam at the mouth. Little Beaver (AKA Willie "Beaver" Hale) released this track in 1974 on RCA Victor (France). It's a block party classic and extremely hard to find on vinyl. The track gets cut up and extended and turned into a sure-fire dancefloor bomb.
