about

Emotional Rescue and HMV Record Shop (Japan) continue its unearthing of the best and rarist of the early Konduko 7”s with the 3rd of 4 series, returning to the music of The Chosen Few and a reissue of their soul single, Wandering.

Released as ‘Wondering / Funky Butter’ in 1976, the 7” now trades in the £100s, with the songs also found on the as rare Night And Day album. With backing from “The Ocean Liners”, Betty Wright’s first show band before becoming The Sunshine Band of ‘KC and the’ fame, the album was given over to one side reggae and one side soul.

While In The Rain and Night And Day were on side one, Wandering and the aptly titled, Funky Buttercup featured on the soul reverse side. An A&R man’s dream maybe, but at the time the album fell on critic’s narrow ears, again parading that reggae artists can’t do funk and soul.

Now cult records, both songs are rightly collector’s items, marrying the warmth and deep bass sound William’s would employ to devasting effect from the reggae and soul 70s to his ground-breaking electro boogie cuts that defined the 80s “Miami Sound”. Remastered and reissued, they appear on 7” again for the first time in almost 50 years, “the groove is just too strong, don’t sit down in your seat and miss that funky beat”.
