V.A. Body Work (2011)

ALBUM`````Body Work
GENRE`````Stuck in 1980's, Classics, Funk, Electro-Funk, Disco, Breaks
A Bleeding Panda Compilation!

I've been meaning to finish this one ever since the HD Computer Music comp. This one is brimming with "stuck in 80's" funk-disco classics, a few mega icky childish pop tracks (Scritti Politti anyone?) and as always some lost or faded gems (Tarzan The Breakman, Ja Ready To Rock, Gettin' Loose). Also, the highlight here is most definitely one of the dopest disco-funk tracks of the 1980's: Tee's Happy (Tee Scott Club Mix), a gorgeous paradise of rhythm machinery and heart ripping guitar and synth work.

01 D-Train - You're The One For Me (1982)
02 Hot Streak - Body Work (1983)
03 Freestyle - Fly Freestyle (Instrumental Version Excerpt) (1984)
04 Man Parrish - Boogie Down (Bronx) (1986)
05 Scritti Politti - Hypnotize (1985)
06 Aleem - Sweet Treat (1987)
07 Kleeer - De Ting Continues (1982)
08 Bumble Bee Unltd. - Bumble Bee Rap (1981)
09 Captain Rock - Cosmic Blast (12''Mix) (1984)

I can attest this is a good comp. Cruised around a bunch of shitty Brooklyn hoods in a friend's car one day blasting this. Great nostalgic time warp!
