Soul & Funk Versions Of Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop Gems On 180g Vinyl 2LP!
Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Billy Paul & More Covering Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, Wings & More!

Too Slow To Disco returns with another trip into the musical past of the sun-drenched West Coast:

This time DJ Supermarkt unearthed 16 Soul & Funk versions of original Westcoast/AOR/Yachtpop gems. You can find tracks originally performed by Fleetwood Mac, The Doobie Brothers, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan and Wings covered by big Soul & Funk legends like Aretha Franklin, Chaka Khan, Quincy Jones, Brothers Johnson and more.

Most of the tracks have been recorded in the late '70s/early '80s, but failed to become big hits and fell under the radar. Like Chaka Khan doing a seriously funky version of Fleetwood Mac's "Everywhere" (from an unreleased album recording), next to obscure reworks like Leslie Smith's version of "Nothin' You Can Do About It" by Airplay (Jay Graydon and David Foster).

There are especially surprising versions here, like Millie Jackson's gospel-like rendering of "This Is It" by Kenny Loggins/Michael McDonald, or Billy Paul's "Black Power"-influenced version of Paul McCartney/Wings' "Let Em In" and the rare cover of The Beach Boys' "God Only Knows" by Betty Everett.

Overall another TSTD collection of smooth, sunny, extremely soulful and funky tracks, that needed to be dug-out to be heard again.

This is Bottled Sunshine!
