aint no sun

Something a little different to start the week, as Big Crown Records announce a particularly rare reissue. The Soul Explosives were originally a Texas-based high school funk band, led by Skip Frazier, who were around at the start of the 70s. Despite only performing together for a couple of years and only having one 45 pressed, they have built up a cult status in the decades since.
With original copies of the record fetching up to £350, Big Crown Records have arranged for another pressing to give us slightly cash-strapped fans the chance to own a piece of funk history. The A-Side is Trying to Get Down, a lo-fi anthem to satisfy the cravings of funk fiends, while the B-Side is a cover of the 1971 Bill Withers’ classic, Ain’t No Sunshine. You can purchase the vinyl over at the Big Crown site, as well as the MP3 and WAV versions.
