This is 2nd single cut from the debut album "Parts Unknown" which will be released on 28 March 2011. "We Need We" on a1, this track is lovely soulful tune which remind Minnie Ripperton or Dennis Williams. "Space Shuttle"
The mid part of a trilogy of vinyl drops to accompany Parts Unknown, Eddie C's CD only album for Endless Flight, commences with the heavy soul stylings of "We Need We". Record buyers of a certain vintage will be expecting Minnie Ripperton to launch into "Black Gold Of The Sun" such is the similarity of the opening bars! There's a definite Rotary Connection vibe running through the track and it's backed with typically crunchy percussive touches from the Banff resident. This is complemented by the Norsedelic cosmiche bump of "Space Shuffle" which wouldn't sound out of place on Internasjonal. On the flip "Deepa" provides one of the most upwardly mobile moments from Parts Unknown with the crisp uptempo percussive strut underlined by a constantly building rhythmic momentum. The burning soul moog beatdown of "Listenin", delivered at head nod tempo, only serves notice of the Canadian's versatility.
