Review

Athens of the North continue their irrepressible march towards the title of most active funk and soul archivalists of 2015 with the focus here on a band with a scarcity of recorded output. Formed in 1969, eight piece act Sage preferred the live stage to the studio, building a reputation for a full on blast of soul and funk. According to the Edinburgh label, this I'm Alive 7" popped up out of nowhere some eight years ago, with obscure label Head Records originally pressing it in 1977. Our thanks go to AOTN for granting the two track release a much wider audience! The Latin horns and sunshine soul sound of the title track are complemented nicely by the flipside ballad "Song for Yvonne".
