Two sides of Dance Today.
Kicking off with the 1983 release from the album of the same name. Hancock doing his best Prince impression, those falsetto vocals can grate. It’s a cover of the Curtis Mayfield ’73 track, Pete Cosey’s guitar nails the funk edge. Some equipment info for all us anoraks Herbie Hancock – Clavinet – Memory Moog -Michael Beinhorn – Prophet-5 – Pro 1 – Memory Moog.
“Earth Beat” is just as good, funky World sounds and a bassline from Wayne Braithwaite.
Another great bonus is the long megamix on the flip, mixing old and new stuff (not brilliantly I may add) but still drop-able now!
