Johnny "Hammond" Smith - Black Feeling!

Please imagine one of the best records on Prestige label, featuring Pretty Purdie on drums, Rusty Bryant on sax, Virgil Jones, and Wally Richardons -- plus Jimmy Lewis on Fender bass. Titles include Johnny Hammond Boogaloo, Black Feeling, Kindra, and Dig On It.

Moodymann - J.A.N White Label

"Yes, the definitive Moodymann 12”, a one-sided release originally released as a 200 copy white label. The cut heads off into KDJ techno territory with a jacking beat, analog bass, and those trademark strings that rise up, an amazing vibe is built with the strings, and the repeating looped bassline just eats its way into house history. But of course, with Kenny its never enough, after building up the track and then bringing it down again Mr KDJ again relies on his instincts and switches the track completely to a rhodes led proper house cut, the depth is doubled, the vibe is lifted, and one of the best tracks in the KDJ catalogue becomes one of the best cuts on the planet. If ever a one sided release was worth 10 times the asking price, this is it, CLASSIC!!" Boomkat
