Working Week ‎– Don’t Touch My Friend (Touche Pas A Mon Pote) (12″)

A trio of jazz funk stuff. Like enjoying strong cheese and olives it must be an old age thing. I would have run a mile from this back in the 80’s now I can let it all wash over me, the arrangements and laid back groove….still hate olives mind!

The return of Larry Stabbins, Juliet Roberts and Simon Booth. Soulful and funky one the main track has their classic, signature sound, saxophone – led and slow tempo. “Walking the Tightrope” has a gospel feel to it and is a good showcase for Roberts voice, more jazz blues. The final track “Why Me?” multi tracks Robert’s vocals in a gospel acappella style.

Virgin ‎– VS 902-12

  1. Touche pas à mon pote was the baseline of SOS Racisme, a rather huge campaign against racism in early 80s France, mostly remembered for its then ubiquitous badges

    1. Nice bit of background info…cheers ! 🙂
