Dynamite Cuts are proud to have the opportunity of presenting this amazing Dj dance floor
diamond, by the legendary funk n soul band S.O.U.L. “Burning Spear” is an upbeat Drum and
Bass groove with a super funky flute and all time classic sample. Sampled by hip greats like Pete
rock & C.L Smooth & Organized Konfusion to name a few, a pure rare-groove club anthem, I remember those nights, funky-ing down to this awesome rhythm.
Dynamite Cuts’ issue of this monster, is a double-sider of the ultimate versions of “Burning
Spear”. The A side cut is taken from the superb “What it is?” LP. On the B-side is the rare and
more collectable version; slightly different, more percussive recording which was released on 7”
in 1971 on the Musicor record label, but sadly on the hissing, breakable styrene, and not on the
lovely VINYL. You’d be lucky to find a copy that doesn’t hiss, pop and crackle. But with thanks
to; Mr Simon Watson, who had a mint stock copy almost un-played; and to the A-Lister
Dynamite Cuts’ mastering magicians – Andy Pearce (de-noises) and Stuart Hawkes (remastering
to get that full-on funk effect). Now what are the chances of that!!!
The name S.O.U.L means Sounds Of Unity and Love, consists of four men from Cleveland,
Ohio USA, the band was formed around 1970.
Lee Lovett, a Libra – Lead singer, Bass and Baritone;
Gus Hawkins, a Scorpio – Vocals, Saxophone, Flute
Paul Stubblefield, an Aquarius – Vocals, Drums
Walter Winston, a Pisces – Guitar.
