Working Week – Venceremos (We Will Win) (12″)

Jazz/funk group Working Week, the brainchild of Simon Booth & sax king Larry Stabbins,this is the 1984 single release, the latin fusion Venceremos, a tribute to Chilean protest singer Victor Jara, with vocals from Robert Wyatt & Tracy Thorn. Producer Robin Millar was making a record to raise awareness about Pincohet and the “missing” people of Chile very Band Aid-like some people turned up to his studio and performed for nowt, this being Working Week and not their established vocalist Juliet Roberts so different to the one on the album , “Working Nights.”  The B-side is not too shabby either, traditional Jazz arrangement with a Latino flavour, greeat!
