|1.||Marsupial - "Like An Eagle" (disco refold) (4:54)|
It may be a dinky little 7" single, but there are some big, bold sounds pressed into the grooves of Cut The Records' second re-edit release. Check, for example, Gigi Testa's six-minute A-side rub of Azymuth's 1977 Brazilian jazz-funk gem "Tamborim, Cuica, Ganza, Berimbau", which chops, loops, tweaks and rearranges in all the right places, resulting in a veritable carnival of Rhodes electric pianos, scat vocals and samba percussion. Even bigger and bolder is the Marsupials' flipside revision of Todd Terje favourite and notoriously epic - read brilliantly camp and overblown - disco anthem "Like an Eagle". While people have tampered with the Dennis Parker classic before, few have treated it with as much respect.
