What happens when The Allergies and Professor Shorthair get their hands on two mighty funk cut from the Big Easy? Nola Breaks V5, that’s what! Yes, Professor Shorthair invited the duo to work their edit-hoodoo on Robert Parker’s classic Everybody’s Hip-Huggin while he took on Betty Harris’s Mean Man himself for a release that is certain to cause a fire on the bayou. Not least of the reasons for this is the way The Allergies get Parker jumping like a catfish in a b-boy breaks stylee complete with hip-hop cuts and shouts. Another is the way the Professor has Harris shacked up with a certain Banbarra break. Another bit of gris-gris for your satchel of 45 black magic.
