Funk
  1. You Win Some, You Lose Some (part 1) (3:21)
  2. You Win Some, You Lose Some (part 2) (3:03)
Review: Washington D.C-based Jim Bennett is probably known for his numerous contributions to the "go-go" sound during the early-to-mid 1980s. Before that, he was a mainstay of the D.C funk scene, right at the moment when "go-go" was beginning to become a fully codified style of its' own. "You Win Some You Lose Some" was recorded in 1981, and sounds like it was inspired, in part, by "E Flat Boogie", a 1980 proto-go-go funk jam from future scene legends Trouble (later known as Trouble Funk). The A-side "Part 1", which boasts chanted vocals, rubbery slap bass from Bennett and some seriously punchy horn work, is particularly potent. Both sides sound like a party in the studio that we're eavesdropping on, such is their excitable vibrancy.

Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Lonely Girl In A Cold, Cold World (5:14)
  2. What's On Your Mind (5:45)
  3. Give It Up (4:06)
  4. Was That All It Was (7:32)
Review: The latest missive from re-born Washington D.C label Al & The Kidd Records should excite those who love the classic Philadelphia International sound. It features previously unheard instrumental versions of all four tracks from the B-side of Jean Carn's Dexter Wansel-produced full-length When I Find You Love. In some ways, it's testament to the quality of Wansel's production and the musicians involved that all four cuts still sparkle without her headline vocals. This is particularly notable on synth-sporting dancefloor bumper "What's On Your Mind", where the rubbery bassline, sharp orchestration and Wanzel's spacey synths take centre stage, and "Lonely Girl In a Cold Cold World", which features some superb, eyes-closed guitar solos.

Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. Ooh Suga Wooga (7:39)
  2. This Feeling (6:22)
Review: Between 1979 and 1981, Frank Hooker and Positive People recorded some of the finest disco-funk to come out of "Go-Go Land" (that's Washington D.C to you and me). Here, Washington imprint Al & The Kidd Records treats us to previously unheard, archive versions of two of the band's most famous tracks: "Ooh Suga Wooga" and "This Feeling". While the A-side version of the former track is worth owning, it's the version of "This Feeling" that's really getting our juices flowing. The stripped-back, disco Dub style production allows the various musical elements - Hooker's killer scat vocals, the mazy synthesizer solos, the proto-go-go extended drum breaks and superb bassline - far more room to breathe.

Funk
  1. It's Up To You (How Far You Go) (4:13)
  2. Do It To The Max (4:39)
Review: Given that one of the founders of Al & The Kidd Records, Carl Kidd, was the musical driving force behind turn-of-the-'80s Washington D.C combo Light Years, it's perhaps unsurprising that the re-born disco-era imprint has a wealth of previously unheard material from the band to share. The label's latest "45" showcases two of these cuts. On the A-side you'll find the Clavinet-heavy D.C disco-funk of "It's Up To You (How Far You Go)", a decidedly cosmic wig-out with urgent vocals and instrument solos aplenty. Flip for the spacey synths, rising horn lines and Mass Production style disco-funk hustle of "Do It To The Max".

Soul
  1. Wonder Woman (Super Lady) (4:08)
  2. After A While (3:10)
Review: Since springing back to life last year, original disco-era funk label Al & The Kidd Records has delivered a string of fine singles featuring previously unheard cuts from the Washington D.C-based imprint's seemingly bulging vaults. Their latest must-have 45 features two delights from Michael Orr, an obscure funk/soul artist best known for his 1975 collaboration with Casey Harris, Spread Love. In fact, B-side "Afterawhile" - a sumptuously loose and laidback affair featuring some superb keyboard solos from Orr - is taken from that sought-after set. Arguably even more thrilling, though, is A-side "Wonder Woman (Super Lady)", a previously unreleased, synth-heavy space funk jam recorded in 1983.
