This one is all about the A-side; Jamaican-in-Miami King Sporty's 79 original was a little too far ahead of its time. But by 83 the world was ready for the Moog-slapping angularities of "Get Down". Coated with gloriously gutsy vocals from Connie Case, it become a foundation record in the Miami funk movement which would spawn freestyle a year or so down the line. Now fully remastered, this really is a very special record. Need help with the funk comedown? Flip for Connie's cosy country on the B (then flip back over for "Get Down" again. Just because.)
