Having recently rescued veteran pianist Henri Pierre Noel from virtual obscurity, Wah Wah 45s boss Adam Scrimshire has uncovered another long lost LP by the man titled One More Step, and has now re-released it for all our listening pleasure. Originally only receiving a limited release in Canada, this sophomore LP dates from the early '80s and features 12 more diverse cuts including the borderline schmaltz of ballad "Will Come A Day" (rescued by stunning ivory tinkling), the frenetic Afro rhythms of "Roller Skate Rhapsody" and the accelerated Eurodisco gem "Funky Spider Dance".
Crystal Distortion & Got KDS - "Swang!" (Shake That Thing extended club mix) - (6:18) 64 BPM
Le Jockey - "It Don't Mean A Thing" (if it ain't got that swing) - (9:04) 120 BPM
DJ Dunya - "Upside Down" - (4:09) 62 BPM
Freshly Squeezed have long proved themselves king of the swingers, but just in case you've somehow missed them here's a little reminder. Blue Cover Series Vol 1 collects highlights from the label's 1940s big band releases - all of which feature blue-tinted sleeves (unsurprisingly) and hellzapoppin' swing madness from the likes of DJ Dunya, Cristal Distortion & Got KDS and Le Jockey.
