Originally released on Guinness Records in 1977 and re-mastered for 2012, “Newban” and “Newban 2” are the true example of ultimately rare soul & funk. Recorded in New York by founders Albert “Duke” Jones Jr. & Porter Carroll Jr., Newban’s ‘Magic Lady’ is a vintage example of simple jazzy madness, drum-tastic liveliness and saxophone flotation that levitates above the rest. More vigorous than a David Blaine street performance, Newban stun, motive and create new depths of sound with every motionless movement.

Backed up by a John Morales type ode that slides back into a “Masters At Work” state of consciousness, John’s remix of ‘Let’s Have It All’ is as refreshing to the ears as a constant round of Piña Coladas would be served on demand. Included as part of the ‘Newban and Newban 2’ digital bonus edition that’s available from BBE Music, it doesn’t get any more retro or relevant than this.

Notable tracks to get your boogie on to are: ‘Let’s Have It All (M&M Mix),’ ‘Thunder In The Sky (Original Tempo M&M Instrumental / Mix)’ ‘Father Time,’ ‘Why Did You Desert Me?,’ ‘Fatback Sally,’ and ‘Free Your Mind.’

Newban-excellence has most certainly been soulfully executed.

Released now through BBE Music as a digital download (WAV / MP3), CD format or on 2 x 12” vinyl.
