Sometimes it's just good to hear a funk track without a barrage of horns on it. Less is more, more or less! Look, don't get me wrong, there's nothing better than a blazing sax, trumpet or trombone but funk also works well in quartet situation, doubly so, when the main feature is the guitar as opposed to say, the organ.

It worked well for Sly & The Family Stone, they have some fantastic tunes featuring a funky guitar, as do The Meters. So it's refreshing to hear some cool, twangy 'Tarantino like' guitar hold court and dominate proceedings.

Hunter's track displays articulate precision, locomotive power and a razor-clean dexterity and is sure to have longevity in any deejay's 45 box. Burning Sole Records have produced, yet again, another worthwhile platter to purchase.
