"Attack" by by Winfree is right in a Fatback styled groove a la "Is This The Future", "So Delicious" or "Phoenix" - it warms my cockles so much to hear this great sound back again and sounding so fresh! Oui and Fresh may sound young yet Oui hails from 80s funk outfit The Deele! This is another great little tune, full of quirky keys and a real steppers beat. What we could do with, though, is a little more via instrumentation - such as a sax here and there. How better that would be. But, I am splitting hairs. The Funk Remix of Daj's "One Day At A Time" is a great augmentation, and the sweet vocal, catchy hooks and breezy demeanor make this a song to get on the iPod, in the car and play LOUD. Our recently reviewed Leon Beal makes an appearance with the Zapp-ish "We Can Make It" - a welcome inclusion - and Winfree's "Time" is also a winner - taking us back to the Elektro Funk era so recently celebrated by James Reeno and Cool Million. Winfree has an interesting voice and has a Keni Burke flavour to his style. All good, then! J. Marie's "Boy Toy" is provoking and excellent as is Enois Scroggins brilliant midtempo effort a la Kleeeer / The Controllers, "Seasons Of Love". Oh, this collection simply begs to be purchased, and I certainly highly recommend it.
