Look Into My Eyes (reissue)
Cat: BEWITH 012TWELVE. Rel: 22 Apr 20
Funk
  1. Look Into My Eyes (6:49)
  2. Express (4:55)
Review: Brit-funk combo 52nd Street are undeniably best-known for their 1983 single on Factory Records, "Look Into My Eyes", which came accompanied by some killer remixes from John "Jellybean" Benitez and sailed closed to the NYC electro sound. The Manchester outfit's roots were in jazz-funk though, as this essential reissue of their 1982 debut single proves. "Look Into My Eyes" is simply superb: a warm, woozy and gently groovy affair full of attractive lead vocals, elastic slap bass, colourful synthesizer lines and dreamy chords. If you're after some more up-tempo dancefloor pressure, check out flipside "Express" - a riotous affair rich in hammered-out Clavinet lines, jaunty lead lines and energetic percussion.

Soul
  1. Check 4 U (3:52)
  2. Check 4 U (Metrodome UK Gee mix) (5:16)
Review: Seminal Manchester street soul from 96; Bovel's "Check 4 U" had anthem status in clubs and on pirates throughout the city at the time but suffered limited pressing and an OG copy has been known to be priced at 2000 quid. Revitalised by Ruf Dug and Bovel herself, it now comes complete with a superb UKG update from Metrodome which maintains the feel of the era but with the pace and punch of the times. Limited to 1000 copies.

Release The Beast

Funk
  1. Release The Beast (4:50)
  2. Let Love In (4:34)
Review: American funk band Breakwater is best known for their hit "Release The Beast," which gets a reissue treatment by Be With. Even if you don't know the name, you'll recognise the track's withering lead riff because it was sampled by Daft Punk for their iconic "Robot Rock". It's mad to think such a futuristic sound was created somewhere in Philly in 1979, but it was. The flip side houses the smooth and buttery "Let Love In", a feel good, deep cut funk gem with vocal harmonies, bulbous bass and hip swinging claps.

Disco/Nu-Disco
  1. No Limit (extended version) (6:33)
  2. Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot (extended version) (6:01)
Review: The seventies were a golden time for disco, soul and funk all the many different fusions of those sounds. Few are finer than Breakwater's "No Limits" which is a 1978 boogie classic. This version is a special reissue of the rare 'promo-only' extended version that's backed with the monster funk cut "Do It Till The Fluid Gets Hot." "No Limits" has soaring guitar riffs and the sort of breezy grooves that sweep you off your feet. The vocals soar just as high and make this a real classic. The flip side is more driven and kicking, with upbeat bass hits and kinetic hand claps all topped with a sense of peak time fun.

  9. Tin Heart & The Rebel (3:31)
  10. Too Much Between Us (4:23)
Review: Despite her 'Working Men's Club" roots, British variety entertainer Marti Caine actually made some surprisingly good records during her lifetime. 1981 album "Point of View" is arguably the best of the lot. Caine's soft-touch (and emotional vocals) take centre stage, though it's the rather left-of-centre musical mixture below - think rock-infused cosmic disco ("Love The Way You Love Me"), trippy dub disco ("Snowbird City"), shirts-off disco ("Can I Speak To The World Please") and a string of cuts that could arguably be described as Balearic - that makes the album an essential listen.

Review: Cult skater and bastard bluesmith Guerrero's seventh artist album from 2006 finally sees the wax light of day thanks to this timely reissue from on-point curators Be With. Still as swampy, woozy and immersive as it was 13 years ago, From The Soil To The Soul stirs a bewitching brew that includes ingredients from every corner; bluesy, sleazy funk, Balkan folk, hip-hop and large doses of cosmic soul. Now sounding warmer and wavier on heavyweight vinyl, fans have been pulling kickflips for this for a long, long time.

Review: While he enjoyed a brief career as a musician in the 1960s, by the time he recorded debut album "Down On The Road By The Beach" in 1983 Steve Hiett was better known as one of the world's leading fashion photographers. In fact, it was at the suggestion of a Japanese gallery owner that he got back in the studio to record what has long been regarded as an impossible-to-find Balearic gem. Hiett's reverb and delay-laden Peter Green style guitar passages take centre stage throughout, winding in and out of languid grooves and ambient electronics to create what some have called "the ultimate desert island disc" - a record of such lazy, sun-kissed beauty that it sounds tailor made for drowsy days waking up on the beach.

Review: The always excellent Be With turn their attention to Samuel Jonathon Johnson and his fantastic 1978 album "My Music", which was the only full length he put out. The smooth vibe you get from the cover art alone says a lot about the music the man recorded: steamy, downtempo soul, romantic disco and lots of strong laden gems to warm you and a loved one through. The well known "What The World Needs Now Is Love" is a slow motion soul soother, while "Sweet Love" is pure positivity and "You" brings gorgeous orchestral disco funk fusions that brim with vitality. His own libidinous spoken word vocals add loveable sleaze to "Just Us" and makes for one of many highlights.

Review: The late, great Walter 'Junie' Morrison may be best known for his contributions to killer records by Parliament/Funkadelic (whose 'One Nation Under a Groove' he wrote) and Ohio Players, but between 1975 and '84 he released a string of mostly excellent albums. Arguably the best of the bunch is 1976's Suzie Super Groupie, which has now been given the reissue treatment courtesy of Be With Records. Musically, it's a thrill-a-minute ride through P-funk, Ohio Players style flash-fried funk fusion, Sly Stone style funk-rock, synth-laden proto-boogie and cheery, soul-fired dancefloor workouts. That's there's no filler, just a string of killer cuts, is testament to Morrison's immense, sadly missed talents.

Review: The latest must-check reissue from the admirable Be With label offers up a particularly obscure - but undeniably impressive - library music release from 1983. It was originally made available to subscribers to the "Coloursound Library" imprint, an outlet focused on "experimental and progressive" sounds. The material on "The Now Generation: Percussive Underscores" is certainly inventive, with composers Peter Ludemann and Pit Troja variously combining South American and African style hand percussion with spacey synthesizers, evocative fretless bass, Latin disco themes, a sprinkling of Chic style guitars and some suitably out-there electronics. It may be obscure, but as albums go it's rather special.

Review: South Africa's Letta Mbulu has put out a vast amount of quality material in her lifetime, and although the singer was based far away from Europe, her music was picked up by the London massive during the mid '80s at clubs like Dingwalls and featured heavily in the rare groove digs. The opener "Sweet Julu" is now a London two-step classic, while other tracks like "Nomalizo" or "The Village" are more on the disco side, all of them filtered with a distinctly tropical edge! A top reissue!

Review: Be With's latest must-have reissue isn't some obscure, dusty old gem, but rather Roisin Murphy's long out of print 2007 set "Overpowered". It received lavish critical praise on its initial release, with reviewers warming to the album's colourful and exciting mix of synth-pop, string-laden post-disco, retro-futurist house, grungy electro-pop, revivalist boogie and Moroder-ish Machine funk. It remains a fine set. For starters, it contains some of Murphy's most endearing and memorable songs, with her chosen producers - a list that includes Groove Armada's Andy Cato, Seiji and Mark de Clive-Lowe, legendary string arranger Larry Gold and Sheffield pals DJ Parrot and Dean Honer - conjuring up brilliant backing tracks that giddily eschew easy categorization.

Review: Be With Records look to continue a consistent run of reissuing important rarities by unearthing this gem from Arthur Russell's discography. This debut from the short-lived New York outfit The Necessaries is a key moment in the city's early 1980's art-rock/new-wave movement. Led by artist and composer Ed Tomney and formed of members of East-Coast tastemakers such as The Modern Lovers & Red Crayola, 'Event Horizon' sounds both of its time and forward thinking - playing with angular garage abrasion, jangling oddball art-rock and pop warmth. Russell's involvement, a year after forming respected disco group Loose Joints and just prior to writing his experimental solo cello work, is testament to his broad versatility and voracious love of music. This is an essential album for both Arthur Russell enthusiasts and collectors and lovers of East Coast new wave.

Review: Originally produced in 1973 as a split LP by guitarist Alan Parker on the first side, and composer John Cameron on the second, this album is one of the KPM 1000 Series twelve inch long playing transcription discs - produced especially for the film, television and radio industries to the highest standards. Eloquently described as "hard afro pop featuring a large percussive rhythm section and front line", it was recorded at Morgan Studios by the pair as a collection of stripped-down African rhythms, virtuoso jazz instrumentation, fuzzed up wah wah guitars and spaced out library breaks. As Cameron himself described it in Unusual Sounds, this is "heavy duty drum-and-bass salsa music".

  1. Let The Dollar Circulate (4:59)
  2. East (6:24)
Review: Philly soul star Billy Paul made some great records during his mid 1970s heyday, though few are quite as sublime as "Let The Dollar Circulate", a passionate plea for economic equality that adds sumptuous orchestration and serious dancefloor chops to the then popular conscious soul template. Paul's lead vocal is superb, while Gamble and Huff's production is as good as you'd expect. Remarkably, this is the first time the track has featured on a 12" single, so props to Be With Records for spotting a gap in the market. You certainly need it in your life - honestly, it's incredible - while flipside "East", an incredible chunk of spiritual soul recorded in 1971, is every bit as awesome. Recommended.

Review: Disco and boogie crate diggers aside, few have heard of Sass single "Much Too Much", which helped launch NYC label 25 West way back in 1982. Props then to Be With for licensing it and offering up this reissue, because it really is a largely overlooked gem. Head first for the A-side full vocal version, where a loved-up male lead vocal rides a slap-bass-heavy groove rich in glassy-eyed chords, D-Train style synth squiggles and unfussy boogie beats. The flipside instrumental version is if anything even deeper and dreamier, with a little more use of the squiggly synth solos (an effect usually created by pressing the keyboard's LFO trigger button, fact fans) and greater emphasis on the tidy slap-bass part.

Review: Iconic soul from 1968 and Rhode Island wanderer Freddie Scott, famously sampled by Biz Markie, "(You) Got What I Need" is one of those records you know before you even hear it. Freddie's balance of sincerity and swing bring a powerful presence to the big R&B groove where the band and backing vocals are following Scott's lead to the measure. Driven by more of an upbeat northern soul stomp, "Powerful Love" was no fading b-side either. A vital piece of soul history.

Review: Since Seahawks have traditionally made vivid, atmospheric and picturesque music capable of taking you to vibrant imaginary worlds, we're not that surprised to find that their latest album, "Island Visions", was recorded as a tribute to the legendary library music label KPM. As a result, it's a varied affair, with their usual blissful Balearic soundscapes - all humid tropical sound effects, glistening slow guitars and psychedelic grooves - being bolstered by extra glassy-eyed rhythms, jazzy musical flourishes (flutes etc), tribal style drum work and fretless bass courtesy of guest musician Sven Atherton (whose killer cut "The Cove" operates within similar sonic territory). The whole thing makes for superb, sun-kissed listening of the type that can brighten up even the most miserable of days.

Review: Quintessential Brit funk from 1982; Side On was a one off project from three members of Freeez and Potion, and "Magic" was unfortunately, their only official release. Cited by the likes of Dam Funk as an influence, the raw funk oozing through the mix on both versions was ahead of its time and veering towards more of a proto house sound that kicks dancefloors like a mule. The standard vocal is much more focused on Rick Clarke's strong vocal while the version goes all out with full bass runs and the obligatory saxophone solo. Abracadabra... Reach out and grab this.
