THE REVOLUTION OF ST VINCENT/ THE ROLLING TONES: The Little You Say/ It’s A Feeling (2013)

This 45 re-press sees Record Kicks rescue two Carribbean cuts from the funk equivalent of the Bermuda Triangle. We know that The Revolution Of St Vincent (from St Vincent island) and The Rolling Tones from St Maarteen recorded The Little You Say and It’s A Feeling back in the day. We know they were pressed too – the former as a 45 and the latter as an album track. But had you tried finding a copy of either before now that didn’t require half your annual salary? Expect percussively busy, horns-led seventies funk on the jazzier side and your mind to fill with visions of maxi-dress and safari suit clad types drinking cocktails on yachts as the sun burns itself out in a warm sea. Christ! It’s the Love Boat
